Podcast: Can You Pull the Silver Handle?
Episode 103 –
Let me tell you another true story.
Some friends of mine decided to try skydiving a short while ago for the first time.
The skydiving school my friends went to offers static line jumps.
Unlike tandem jumps where you are strapped to another jumper, with static line jumps you jump by yourself.
For a static line jump, your parachute is hooked up to the airplane by a strap.
The jumpmaster opens the door of the airplane.
You step out and hold on the wing strut.
When you are ready, you just let go.
All jumpers have a main chute and an emergency chute. The emergency chutes at this skydiving school all have a large silver handle.
If you have an emergency with your main parachute, such as the lines are tangled, the main parachute does not deploy properly, etc., you have to activate your emergency parachute immediately to land safely.
You do so by pulling the sliver handle.
If your life depended on pulling the silver handle, could you do it?
Or would you procrastinate?
If you pull your silver handle in a challenging situation in your life, you will make a positive impact in your own life.
I am always pulling the silver handle to overcome the challenging situations in my life. How about you?
