Max Maisonneuve is a fighter.
Real climbing is about falling over and over and over again. You can go on Youtube and watch really good climbers send really hard routes all day, but falling is just a fact of life. Even for the good climbers.
All climbers fall. In fact, I’d say we fall about 10x more than we finish a route.
From the moment Max grabs the first hold on a line, you know he’s not gonna quit. A passion for climbing and overcoming obstacles is evident in the way he trains and performs.
When you want something so bad, failure can have a strong bite.
“Am I just not good enough?”
“What am I missing?”
“What do I have to do to climb this route?”
All impassioned people fight these battles.
Today I’d like to tell you. DON’T quit! Whatever you are passionate about, keep going! Stay laser focused on your goals, and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it. Get out of your own head, and start using your thoughts to encourage yourself. Wake up earlier if you have to, but make time for the things you love.
Work harder, be driven, stay focused, and remember that it’s only in your head!
Please, tell me a little about what you are passionate about below. Of course, I’d also love it if you’d share this blog. You can do that by clicking the icons below.
Also, if you are NOT a climber, did you enjoy watching the video? Often times, climbing videos are only entertaining to well… climbers. We are trying to overcome that hurdle and give you something you find interesting.
Until next time!
