“Reframe fear as excitement. They feel almost the same inside your body.” –Alex Honnold
Got a lot out of this discussion with Alex Honnold and Armita Golkar moderated by Carin Klaesson at Nobel Prize week from a few years back. In it the Alex talks about fear and risk assessment in free solo climbing with psychology researcher at Stockholm University. There’s something disarming and penetrating about way calm way Alex explains his superhuman abilities to control his mind in perilous situations. Lots of actionable wisdom. Enjoy.
