Solar Powered Plane
There are some days you wake up ice on the window to your dreams. Its not just cold on the window but its cold in your mind. The burning desire to get out of bed and get on with your passion simply is not there. I can appreciate this kind of feeling and today I wanted to share with you a video that really got under my skin and me to breath again.
Its Bertrand Piccard's talk at the TED Conference. He is a balloonist, psychiatrist, aeronaut, internationally renowned public speaker, president of the "Winds of Hope" humanitarian foundation and Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations, Solar Power Plane partner.(www.solarimpulse.com)
In the talk he uses his trip around the world in a balloon as a metaphor to show how we can move to different levels in our life and to describe his next major project, to fly around the world without fuel.
First let me fully endorse the move to renewable energy. We must find better alternatives for fuel.
Here are a few interesting excerpts from the talk
"Pioneers are not the ones who have new ideas because new ideas are so easy to have. the Pioneer is the one who allows himself to throw overboard ballast, habits, certainties, convictions, paradigms, dogmas…"
"The most renewable energy we have is our own potential and our own passion."
If there are any dreams are goals that feel impossible you might need to throw a few things overboard. This is one of the core steps to better your personal development and also your leadership.
