"Stars The Limit" Canvas Art by IKONICK.
For some, life at ground level just isn't satisfying—they are determined to climb higher.
The same drive that has called people to submit to Mount Everest pushes others to go beyond. Even the tallest point on Earth is too finite a limit for some. They want to reach higher. They want a bigger thrill.
In 2012 Felix Baumgartner found that thrill in riding a balloon up to the edge of space and free-falling from the stratosphere back to Earth. It was an insane achievement that shattered world records.
But someone will always want to push it further.
That someone was David Blaine in 2020. No space suit to protect against the freezing temperatures, his oxygen was limited to a handheld regulator, and he didn't put on a parachute until halfway up the ascent. Blaine rode a handful of balloons up to the cruising altitude of jets, let go, and floated down to Earth. Try to watch that without your palms sweating.
As nerve-wracking as both stunts were, eventually someone will come along to raise the bar even higher.
That's the thing about limits: They can always be pushed. Once one person proves what's possible, it opens the door for everyone else to try to top it. It's a competitive addiction that only builds.
Whether you're climbing in altitude or trying to reach a higher position in life, the only limits are those you put on yourself. Whenever you need a reminder of what's possible, look around to see what others have accomplished. Then top them.
It's human nature to want to surpass what those before us have done. Kids want to become more successful than their parents, athletes want to beat the records of the players they watched growing up, and a new Guinness World Records book is published every year. We're only getting better. Are you going to raise the bar yourself, or watch from the ground?
"Stars the Limit" original canvas wall artwork from IKONICK is a visual reminder for your own ascent. If you are heading into unknown territory in your life, don't look down. Hold on tight, and set new limits.
