Today I’m joined by one of my personal heroes, Jimmy Nelson. Some may call Jimmy a photographer or an artist, but as we will see over the course of our conversation together, he’s much more a student of life, people and happiness. Jimmy has spent his lifetime seeking out and celebrating the last indigenous cultures as well as extreme experiences around the world, so today we will take a deep dive into what truly means to be human and alive Max Out Insights: You only feel when feeling confronted, hitting a wall, falling, bleeding. Those scars that you carry 24 hours are the lessons that push you through this authentic journey. Every day no matter wind, rain, sunshine, or storm. Make sure “one hair” becomes realigned. Through small steps with consistency that you can heal your mind and body. External validation will never be a source of a fulfilling life. Max Out Quotes: “The essence and the beauty of being a human being is feeling.” “Spend every single day, every morning you wake up in that ritual and meditation, choosing one hair and realigning it.” “Until you truly let go, until you truly form humility, can you find empathy and in that empathy you find contact and in that contact you find out who you truly are, and who the people are around you.” “From every single conversation, you’ll learn something.” “One has to go through one’s own pain. It’s extremely important, understand what you feel and only once you understand what you feel you can start leading a life aligned with what you want to do.” “We all have a little voice inside, something telling us who we are and what we are.” Connect with Jimmy: You can find his life’s work through www.jimmynelson.com and also other means of contact.
