Today, we welcome a true peak performer to share his story: Base jumper, Cédric Dumont.
He started BASE jumping in 1996, and since completing his first jump has competed in the X Games three times, finished third in the Skysurfing World Cup and won the Brazilian Open of Skysurfing.
Cédric has more than 10,000 skydives and 2,000 BASE jumps on his record, always traveling the world in search of new adventures.
He is a true multi talent: He’s always been passionate about flying, but has also been a snowboarder and surfer – he’s even claimed a spot on Belgium’s national golf team.
Besides being an Action/Adventure Sports athlete, Cédric's degree in Applied Sports Psychology allowed him to begin his coaching vocation by giving professional athletes the mental edge and skills necessary to achieve their goals and unleash their full potential.
His new book “Dare to Jump: Everything You Want is on the other Side of Fear” is just coming out now, so make sure to check it out.
In this episode, we not only talk about action sports and base jumping but we talk about the practical learnings that business people, entrepreneurs and knowledge workers can draw from Cédric's experience.
Make sure to stay until the end to learn what entrepreneurs and managers can learn from extreme athletes.
