Adam Holm | Professional Windsurfer, Adventurer & Film Maker

Mar 30, 2017

On today’s show, we talk to professional windsurfer, adventurer and film maker, Adam Holm.

What we discuss on today’s show

  • How a young man honoured his calling, sacrificing what most would call a right-of passage in growing up.
  • Understanding, the greatest thing you can do in your life is follow your heart and pursue your dreams; but also, to help and inspire other people along the way.
  • The inner thinking of a world-champion athlete.
  • The brutal reality of chasing a dream, and being denied the right to fulfil it, because of a “policy decision”.
  • How contribution and the desire to help others, was the panacea for devastating disappointment, and an elixir for authentic happiness.
  • How unconditionally supportive parents can provide bullet-proof self-worth.
  • Chasing the Elements, a project aimed at sharing our strong bond to nature, and inspire people to feel the same way. We believe that people’s relationship to nature is a necessary foundation in the process of implementing solutions to both environmental and health issues.
