It's only scary at the top.

This is probably one of my favorite videos on the internet.

Watch this entire video before proceeding with the blog post. Pay attention when she says, “I got it.“

Did you watch the whole video?

This girl sits at the top of a ski jump like many of us sat looking at the idea of going freelance, building a business, creating an app…waiting at the top, scared shitless. We’re trying to talk ourselves into moving forward. We have outside encouragement and eventually say, “I can do this,” let go and we push off.

The next five seconds/five days/five weeks/five months/five years we’re going faster than we’ve ever gone, and everything is a blur.


And suddenly we land on our own feet, WE’RE ALIVE and ready to try an even bigger slope.


Hi I'm Allan,

I wrote the article you're reading... I'm one of the co-founders of LessEverything. I love my family more than breathing and I love creating videos about our family adventures.
