Travis Pastrana on the Fearless Mindset to Pursue Your Passion

The School of Greatness

Sometimes I get to meet legends on The School of Greatness. I'm always inspired by people who are the best at what they do. The ones who break the limits of what has been done before. The ones who are willing to do what it takes to achieve greatness in the thing they are passionate about. Today's guest fits all of the above qualities and more. I had an incredible time meeting and connecting with the legendary extreme action sports champion Travis Pastrana. If you've watched the X Games, Motocross, or Rally Car Racing, you already know who I'm talking about. But in case you haven't, he has won medals in all of these sports. Travis is one of the founding members of the stunt show Nitro Circus, which is a mind-blowing action sports show that has been touring the country for years. He has been the first to pull off many of the craziest stunts and now focuses on exploring new ones to teach to the upcoming generation of stunt performers. All of this is very cool (just check out the video of his top 10 stunts below). But what is even cooler about Travis is how grounded he is in his work. His passion for it. His family. He has gone through enough pain and loss to turn most people off of this sport. But it only fuels him to keep going. And that is passion I admire. I can't wait for you to be inspired by his wisdom and perspective on living the life he loves in Episode 368 with Travis Pastrana.
