Going blind in space

going blind in space - confront fearRemember the Space song going viral last year? The astronaut singing David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” while being in ISS flying around the earth?

Well, this astronaut – Chris Hadfield – has been speaking at TED this month. The talk “What I learned from going blind in space” only got released this week, and it already has over 350.000 views!

I think I know why. I mean apart from the fact that Chris Hadfield is widely known.

Chris gives an amazing talk about his experience to confront fear, and danger. In fact he gives a recipe on how each one of us can not only address a fear that we might have, but also deal with it. It sounds simple in comparison to flying to space, in my view.

Have a look at his unbelievable story.

I got goose bumps when I saw those images of the earth, did you?

If this does not get you inspired, I don’t know what will 😉

Let the community know below what action you will take following this talk.

Here is mine to give you some inspiration:

This weekend, I am going to think about my childhood dreams, and investigate how unrealistic they really were/are and what is holding me back to realize those dreams.

What steps will you take?
