When you commit to achieving something you have never done before, you jump into the unknown, live on a high. You have no choice, but to create new solutions to the problems that arise.
Ten of thousands years ago when our ancestors lived in the woods, their daily survival was a constant question mark. Fight for food, for a safe place to live, for a partner, safety.
Many of the feelings we experience, like fear, aggression, admiration for those who would face risk and win, could be rooted back to those days when our ancestors fought for survival.
Achieving something that previously seemed impossible, lifts your self-worth. And a sense of attraction to yourself and others.
