Ueli Gegenschatz fulfilling The Dream Of Flight In A Wingsuit

What do you fear?

TED speaker, Ueli Gegenschatz previews a short film of his dream of flying in a high-tech wing suit. He has no fear – not even of death. It is his dream to fly and land like a bird.

Stay with the video to 5:45 minutes in and see him fly like a bird.

What is your dream compared to his?

Imagine what it takes to leap off a mountain. Can you do just one small thing that takes you closer to your dream? today?

Just imagine you are about to fly like a bird.

Could you jump?

Keep on dreaming –

On November 11, 2009, seven months after I posted this video, during a jump from the Sunrise Tower in Zurich, Switzerland, a gust of wind hit Ueli Gegenschatz and he lost control. He hit the ground and was seriously injured. He died on November 13th, 2009.

    LOL Dawnda – they are hooked to their dream like it’s a drug. One of these guys died just before 60 minutes did a segment on them, but it didn’t stop the group from flying for 60 minutes. Makes me think of that French tightrope walker who walked the tightrope between the twin towers without any nets.

    OMG! Not for me either! But maybe my dream would cause as much fear and anxiety in them as theirs does in me? Ya think that could even be possible?

  • Catherine, the writer and motivator

    LOL I never told you about my fear of heights? Where in the hell in Italy did you manage your comment? I hope you are having a great time. . . and flying like a bird!

    This video shows that there are all kinds of dreams.

    no thanks…not for me….
    I do believe that no matter how different each persons dream, the motivation and energy it takes to obtain that dream can be equal.
