Guest post: CHALLENGE LIKE NO OTHER~Forbes
Though Felix’s challenge is new and unique, the motive to be first to achieve things other people haven’t achieved is neither new nor unique. It echoes the challenges of early explorers like Christopher Columbus that changed the course of history; and the celebrated entrepreneurs like Thomas Edison,Steve Jobs and Bill Gates that changed the way people work and live.
But Felix’s venture carries a strong spiritual message to everyday people:
Don’t live life as a spectator. Always examine life: Espouse new ideas, long for new things, constantly discovering new interests, escaping from boring routines. Engage life with enthusiasm; grasping life aggressively and squeezing from it every drop of excitement, satisfaction, and joy.
The key to unleashing life’s potential is attitude. The person who approaches life with a child-like wonder is best prepared to defy the limitations of time, is more “alive,” more of a participant in life than the person who remains a spectator.
