My sister and I were having a craving for adventure–not huge big, crazy things–but the kind of adventure that gets your heart racing and kicks you out of your comfort zone. Physical adventure keeps “death by complacency” at bay. We both feel the call of the “wild” when we aren’t being challenged physically and emotionally. Sometimes you just need to feel the tingle of fright and jump off the tower.
Jumping off the tower is what we did this weekend. No–not bungy jumping or gliding but “zip lining.” Zipline adventures have been popping up around the states especially in ski resorts. Since Florida is deficit in ski facilities we settled for a safari zip–still great fun–just not as high or dry. Our zips flew over swampy grounds where alligators and other wet land creatures reside. And for those who find heights a bit of a challenge even 55 feet off the ground poses a challenge.
So we harnessed our torsos and helmeted our noggins and climbed the first tower where our guides hooked and unhooked our lines before encouraging that first step into air suspended only by a small wire cable. Wheeeeeeeeee…..
Each tower got progressively taller and faster and by the seventh leap we were laughing and videoing our glide through the trees. By the end–we were ready to tackle something bigger and scarier. We’re already planning a moonlight zip when the alligators come alive and night noises are scarier than the zipping!
If you consider experiential learning an element of a better life–then physical adventures are a fun and quick way to boost your feeling of aliveness. Try it!
There are probably hundreds of confidence building products out there on the internet today, yet it’s difficult to find one that addresses every important issue there is to know about building confidence effectively. Some may assure you that building confidence is as easy as following a 3-step program, others may claim to have you confident and raring to go within 3 days or 3 hours.
The first time I stumbled upon Peak Confidence, I thought it may have been one of those rehashed confidence building books that wasn’t worth another second of my time. But having read the free report provided, I thought that it provided an interesting perspective on confidence building, and the visualization techniques in the report were quite enlightening.
I was convinced by the free report to give Peak Confidence a go. The free report contained techniques I found valuable so I thought the entire course was worth a try.

Confidence is often the first thing we notice about someone. We might think its body parts that get attention (and sometimes that’s true) but confidence has more impact.
Confidence is the energy that tells the world you are self-assured and self-reliant.
Confidence is not arrogance. Arrogance is about self-importance whereas confidence is about making others feel important while retaining a high level of self-respect.
Entrepreneurs, coaches, consultants and small business owners need a high level of confidence to succeed. A sense of overall confidence keeps you going when faced with challenges.
Confidence is having freedom from doubt…and that’s sweet!
