Last week I flew to Jamaica to go to attend my very first A-Fest.

One of the speakers, Wim Hof (aka the Ice Man), shared how he was able to…

…climb to 22,000 ft on Mt. Everest with only shorts and shoes

…stay in freezing cold ice for almost 2 hours (a world record)

Show Notes:

There were two things necessary to complete these records.

Mental toughness
It was 9:30am and I found myself standing next to the jacuzzi filled to the brim with ice and I was facing my own fear — being submerged in ice for 1 minute. Could I do this? Could I last the whole time?

Stepping into the ice for the first time was a shock to my entire body. I could feel my body become more and more tense. I wanted to jump out. How in the world could I last a minute?

Then I remembered the two things Wim Hof said to us.

Fuck Fear
Focus on the breath

It was his philosophy to stare fear down and just do things despite fear. Fear was always going to be there, but do it anyways. How else was he able to break so many world records?

And to take your mind off of fear, just focus intently on breathing in and out.
