If Nik Wallenda taught us anything from his June 15th,2012 feat at Niagara Falls, its that it doesn't matter how insane, how impossible, how daring, how hopeless something appears to be, with the right determination and passion for success, anything can be accomplished. Although Nik Wallenda brought in immense capital with his spectacle down at the Terrapin Point, the true gift to the city is was his dispay of grit, determination, and just a bit of foolishness. A foolishness that symbolically conveys to the onlooker to take a stand and step out of your comfort zone into a place where your dreams can be accomplish. If you challenge the ordinary, you CAN become extraordinary. Nik Wallenda did just that on June 15th, 2012 and created a symbolic and historic blueprint for the revival of Niagara Falls NY.
William Feather once said, "Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go". Nik Wallenda could've given up his dreams of conquering Niagara Falls when his Great Grandfather Karl Wallenda tragically fell to his death during a tightrope stunt in Puerto Rico, but he chose to pursue his dreams and carry on his family's legacy. While crossing the thunderous Falls walking into the abyss of God's glorious creation, Wallenda proclaimed to millions of viewers, "Pursue your dreams; never give up,You'll achieve your goals, you'll achieve your dreams." If you have a goal and a vision for the future, stay focuses, endure, and keep pushing forward. With that mentality, anything, even the revival of Niagara Falls, NY, can be accomplished. Thank You Nik Wallenda. You've inspire myself and undoubtedly millions of others to persevere through struggles, challenge the status quo, emerge as leaders instead of followers, and achieve what many believe are impossible and foolish aspirations.
