The first method to go beyond your limits comes from the world of sports: peak performance
Peak performance is the main topic of this book, which is a guide to going beyond your limits. The concept of peak performance comes from the world of sport and is used to describe a perfect performance in which an athlete is able to give his best, and produce extraordinary results. This is part of an improvement process for athletes, but can also contribute to the improvement of society, in that breaking new records shows that it is in fact possible to achieve results that have never been achieved before. However, for this to work, the mind and body must be connected, and this allows a person access to their hidden skills, and to discover what they are really capable of.
The author begins his guide by telling us about his approach to the world of journalism, as an expert in extreme sports, such as surfing, snowboarding, free climbing, and skydiving, and explaining how he ended up spending time with people who were constantly going beyond their limits. One story involves a fall and several broken bones, but the experience enabled him to be amongst athletes who were capable of showing the world new tricks, and who were always pushing their boundaries.
