I love to get my hands dirty, see the world with my own eyes, deal with all the challenges that nature and society throws at me and
succeed — fail. I learned this lesson in multiple ways. I have high expectations on whatever I’m currently after, but the highest expectations are on myself, so failure is everything but a rare coincidence. The good thing is, one can learn to fail. And even enjoy failing, because with every failure, you learn a very important lesson. The imminent risk of failing is something I take into account in all my ventures, as it opens up a wide range of fascinating opportunities, that the fear of failure would prevent you from.
With this attitude, I learned to sail alone across oceans, to kitesurf big waves on remote islands, climb mountains and find my perfect line down.
