124: Pete Cossaboon and Nelson Diaz | The Dash Between Birth and Death Dates

Not wanting to spend his life on the sidelines, blind athlete Pete Cossaboon started participating in Spartan events. He sought out and found a way to achieve this seemingly impossible goal. Nelson Diaz has dedicated himself to facilitating the implausible achievements of adaptive athletes through compassion and action. The events only have meaning and purpose to the degree that they can be applied to life at large and to what extent the athletes can use them to tell their unique story to the world.

Lessons:

– Any new situation, when confronted, evolves from fear to adaptation.
– If life is a dash between you birthday and your death day, measure your value by the lives you have you changed in the interim.
– Avoid distractions to the degree that they are diverting you from the main purpose of your life.
