Ep. 96: Known for his televised tightrope walks over Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, Times Square, and an active volcano, Nik has been walking the wire since he took his first steps, but he had never experienced fear until a tragic accident in 2017. For the first time, he felt overwhelming fear, and Nik had to find it in himself to move on, release the past, and get back out on the wire.
Most of us will never walk a tightrope, but we face things that scare us every day. Whether you are putting yourself out there socially or seeking a dream job, all of us allow anxieties and fears to hold us back. In this episode, he shares his story so that we can learn:
5:30 Why everything matters when no one is watching.
13:00 The power of creative risk-taking.
25:00 How to heal and move forward from trauma.
38:00 The difference between healthy and unhealthy fear.
