Expect Extraordinary - Here's a Video of Something Not to Try at Home

Sometimes normal isn't enough.

Playing safe is often a good strategy … But, sometimes you have to expect the extraordinary.

Did you see the strange guy doing a modified tight-rope circus routine during Madonna's Super Bowl half-time performance.

Well, it was more than that … did you see the guy bounce up and down as though that little rope was a trampoline?

What in the world was going on?

Well, the short answer is: slacklining. Or, if you want to get technical and specific, tricklining. According to California's Adventure Sports Journal , slacklining was invented in the early 1980s by two rock climbers.

As you may have guessed, the Super Bowl halftime cameo was a big moment for the young sport of slacklining—and for the talented, curly-haired slackliner who got the spotlight: Andy Lewis, aka Sketchy Andy . You've got to watch what he can really do!




Imagine what went into developing this skill.  Was it thought … or something you forgot you could exercise?

What are you committed to expecting extraordinary about … starting now?
