Quite early in my life I found up my path. I wanted to become a climber. Although completely terrified by heights I have decided that I had to overcome my fear of heights and I did manage but when everything was doing well I got 3 accidents in a row and the 3rd one that was particularly bad so me condemned by the surgeons.
Then I have decided that instead of always listening to the so-called right instance I was going to listen to my heart and I was going to climb back. I did train hard, I did suffer a lot. It did require a lot of willpower and 2 years later I was better than ever. Not really long after I climbed the hardest grade free solo in the world in 91. I became mediatic ani in 94 I got this proposal to climb buildings and right away I have loved it and I have understood that it could be an amazing way to live my life my passion by traveling, free soloing buildings most of the time illegally which was fitting and still with my mind as rather rebellious in a nice way and trying more or less not to be too much into the mold of our societies.
For doing all that you need to master your mind. It is inspiring people as you need to be daring but not too much. Calculated risk, having targets and dealing with anything possible to be sure that you will reach your goals. However, sometimes you need to maneuver outside your comfort zone and it’s a great feeling. Those are the key points that are working in any kind of fields, businesses or whatever you will be undertaking all along with your life.
Alain Robert is a French rock climber and urban climber, known as “the Spider-Man”. Robert is famous for his free solo climbing, scaling skyscrapers using no climbing equipment except for a small bag of chalk and a pair of climbing shoes.
He is regarded as the greatest ‘climber’ of all time and can now be rated the ‘Greatest Daredevil of All Time.’. He is regarded as the greatest ‘climber’ of all time too. With a courage that knows no limit, he has already conquered more than 100 of the world’s tallest buildings using nothing more than his bare hands. No ropes, no hooks, no safety nets; just his fingertips and the grips of his soles between world acclaim and oblivion. This is free solo climbing -single-person climbing without the use of any rope or protection system. If the climber falls, he dies. Free solo climbing refers to routes that are usually extremely high and always potentially lethal.
Robert has climbed landmarks including the Burj Khalifa (828m/2716ft), Eiffel Tower (313m/1027ft), the Sydney Tower (319m/1047ft), the Montparnasse Tower (209m/686ft), Taipei 101 (509m/1670ft), both Petronas Towers in Malaysia (452m/1,483ft) as well as other of the world’s tallest skyscrapers. lecture, feature in commercials and attend events is phenomenal. When he ascended the National Bank of Abu Dhabi (173m/568ft), there were more than 150,000 spectators, including the Sheikh and the President of the United Arab Emirates, plus a TV audience of millions. Alain Robert is magnificent, unique, breathtaking, truly a class apart.
