We all want to live life to the fullest, but how many of us still hold back from ever trying out new things?  Life is too short not to open up your world to new rewarding experiences. We’ve highlighted a few things that will help you to experience a fulfilled life!


There is a quote which says: “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” We believe that this reinforces the fact that if we never rise up to face our fears, we can never soar up to the heights which we’re destined to reach. Every success of completing what may have been challenging at the beginning, like taking your first paragliding flight, starts with an “I can” mindset. Facing our fears brings fulfillment, and it all begins with the courage to take that step.


After you have set your goal and have a vision for reaching your target, it is important to stay motivated until you achieve it. If your first paragliding course lesson does not go well, for instance, it does not mean you should quit; you need to keep on working at it until you finally get it right, and make it to the top, pun intented…


In as much as we need to focus and work hard in order to realize our dreams in life; it is also important to have some fun on the journey. We should never lose our youthful curiosity, never stop trying new things. Taking time out from your work schedule to try out random activities like bungee jumping is part of having fun. Such activities will not only give you an adrenalin rush, but they leave you with happiness, which brings a sense of fulfillment.


You will find fulfillment in pursuing extreme activities – things that make your heart beat faster. Engaging in meaningful experiences adds value to our lives. Paragliding is one extreme adventure that is sure to give you the thrill of a lifetime! Check out this Hippo.co.za article where Fly Cape Town Paragliding was featured under extreme adventures.


You only have one body, so take good care of it… it’s been said that “when you look good, you feel good”. And feeling good about yourself automatically gives you more confidence to step out and reach for your dreams. Try to eat healthily and do get some form of exercise, because you need a strong healthy body to engage in challenging activities!
