Freediving: Braving the Depths with Allan Young and Beau Durham
“The meaning of extreme is relative to the people you hang around with.”
Progress happens behind the scenes. It’s getting out of your comfort zone and going on the journey marked with pain, failure, and struggle – the moments that didn’t make the “highlight reel”.
Recently, Thor dove out of his comfort zone and went on a freediving trip to Bonaire with his fellow YPO members. These individuals were able to push themselves to hold their breath for 3 and even 4 minutes reaching depths of over 100 feet on a single breath.
These incredible accomplishments were not achieved without struggle. What you may not see are the times they dove down only 20 feet, panicked, and came back up for air.
By using discomfort as a tool, this group faced their fears and pushed themselves to achieve success. This growth mindset directly translates to business and is the reason Allan Young, Beau Durham, and many others make bolder decisions (and bolder mistakes) in business and have achieved such high levels of success.
