Pro Tip: Push yourself beyond your capabilities.
A while ago I was in Bali and I had an opportunity to hike a mountain, Mount Batur ⛰
Now when I first heard about it, I was like why?, why tire myself and climb this huge ass mountain, reach all the way up top and only see other mountains? No thank you, I’m good 🙏🏻
This was around a phase in my life where I had been a filmmaker for around 4 years in Mumbai. I had achieved modest success in my field but I had a sense of frustration that I wasn’t recognized as yet. I had worked on multiple big campaigns, with big names yet all the “good scripts” for ad films would go to either foreign directors or somebody who was someone’s son or daughter. I loved the craft of filmmaking but the politics of the film industry made me very bitter.
The day came along for this hike, and I said to myself “screw it”, let’s just do it.
It changed me. I climbed up that mountain a bitter, close minded person and climbed down inspired and feeling small, but in a good way.
I actually had moments where I thought, screw this. I’m done climbing this, but then this other voice in my head asked me, “are you a quitter?”, it actually made me realize, we will only go as high as we want to. No matter what we think we know.. there’s always going to be challenges on the road to the top, many times the challenges are mental more than physical because hey, if climbing up top was that easy, everyone would be on top 💯

So I heard @casspernyovest partnered with @meetsouthafrica on a cool campaign and asked everyone to share their wish Travel destination in South Africa and I had too say the Bloukrans Bridge Bungy in Eastern Cape/Western Cape as my first. #Sbwl
