Walking alone down a dark street, you hear footsteps gaining on you. You’re the first responder at an accident and someone’s life is in your hands. You come face-to-face with the soul mate you’ve been searching for all your life. Your hands start to sweat, your heart beats like John Bonham’s solo in “When the Levee Breaks” and everyone and everything around you disappears except the focus of your adrenaline rush and you… you’ve got to make a split second decision. Go for it or, run for the hills.
An adrenaline rush is our body's self-preservation mechanism and the majority would prefer to have as few of those extreme experiences as possible. Oh, we like the mild jolts that make our lives more interesting. Horseback riding for the first time, jumping from a 40’ cliff into a pool of deep water, the first kiss. But for a few of the intrepid, danger is the reason they get up every morning. They’re addicted to that adrenaline high and the sanest of the crazies get their fix through extreme sports.
But, if we can all work up a little adrenaline given the right situation, what sets them apart? What propels them to seek out danger and why aren’t they afraid of the outcome? Its got be more than competitiveness and moxy that gives someone the steely resolve to walk between two mountain tops on a 1 inch thick rope without a safety net or balancing bar.
Its got to be faith! Pure, unshakeable faith… in themselves and tomorrow.
