‘We are all capable of infinitely more than we believe. We are stronger and more resourceful than we know, and we can endure much more than we think we can’
On the 5th September 2003 the American illusionist, David Blaine, stepped into a Perspex box, to be suspended from a crane near Tower Bridge on the river Thames in London. He stayed there for 44 days without food, without direct human contact and feeding on water alone.
These words were lifted from an interview held before he entered the box in response to being asked to explain his reasons for his ‘Above the Below’ endurance stunt.
I was looking for resources to reinforce my Resourcefulness for 2018 and this particular quote jumped out at me, not because I am a fan of Blaine, but because of the truth in these words.
