About VISION - #54

"It always seems impossible until its done." - Nelson Mandela

This balance was something that surprised me. Recently I had found a new river cascade, and the day that this edition was taken I was trying to come up with a new form that I had never done before. After working for many cold hours, I achieved nothing but failure.

Through my experience, I have learned that these moments of failure determine how bad I really want it. Failure is the test of intention and desire. Only when you fail, brush yourself off, get up, and try again will you succeed. 

It may seem impossible to ever achieve the goal as the failures are happening. Before this shot was taken, I had to fail for a few hours. Failure was required, because after the last failure occurred I stood up, took a deep breath to center myself, and the vision of this image appeared.

At this point I was exhausted and willing to try just about anything. After 5 minutes of patiently executing the vision further, everything locked into place.
