The intention of each of these experiences is to get the participant out of their comfort zone and allow them the opportunity to hear, feel and experience the benefits of becoming a great self-coach. That is, understanding the power of controlling that little voice in your head, coaching it to be positive and encouraging and coaching it to help your physical being go as far as you can plus one more step.
It is that one more step into your stretch zone that will help you become the best version of yourself armed with unshakeable confidence that can help you take the proper steps to improve your life.
When taking on adventures as a group, there is a natural bond that is born. This bond is formed out of the vulnerability and uncertain outcomes that naturally exist in adventure activities. The bond, while unspoken and generally not premeditated, becomes the spark for which a trusting relationship is born.
This is why fellow servicemembers stay close long after they leave the military. Simply, they’ve had multiple adventures where they felt vulnerable and out of their comfort zones together. And their togetherness and ability to help each other through those moments of anxiety and stress created relationships with deep connections of trust and love.
