How To Get Someone Else To Pay For Your Dive To The Wreck Of The Titanic
For James Cameron’s birthday, I wanted to post his amazing TED Talk where he explained how he got other people to pay for his dive to the wreck of the Titanic.
I have this speech on mp3 and I’ve listened to it like 100 times. For me, a content creator, it is just so inspirational.
This speech is so powerful. To imagine that he just dreamed and dreamed of diving to the Titanic, the ultimate dive for any interested in using a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus, and circumstances in his life aligned to actually make it possible is, to me, evidence of that magic that is all around us.
That magic starts with imagination and curiosity, and this speech crystallized that for me perfectly.
Curiosity. It’s the most powerful thing you own.
Since that comes from a man who could basically buy anything he wants, I try to remember to listen to that advice, and to allow my imagination to run WILD at all times!
