How does one become an amazing free runner like this? After watching interviews of talented free runners, their answer is simply “practise”. So if the first idea you had for starting your business didn’t quite work, don’t give up, try again.
Damien Walter’s (the free runner in this video) wasn’t born with the skill he has. He most probably didn’t accomplish his aim at first, breaking a few bones on the way. Instead he practised until he reached his goal. Let’s watch this video with appreciation, but don’t forget; that if at first you don’t succeed, try again!
