What if I am afraid of heights?
Fear and anxiety play a role in everyone’s life on some level. It’s normal to be afraid of the unknown and certainly everyone has questions when they arrive at the adventure course facility. Will I be able to do this? Am I strong enough? Will others think poorly of me if I can’t? I don’t want to be embarrassed. I don’t want to slow others down. I don’t want to be a burden on anyone. These are but a few of the thoughts that race through the mind when faced with the unknown of the adventure course. Amazingly enough, it is also these very thoughts and fears that make the challenge course such a powerful experience for individuals and groups that are committed to growing.
Experiencing, hearing, and seeing people do things that they are not masters of, or that they are fearful of, taps into a level of development that 9 out of 10 people never discuss or face. By going through a challenging experience, people discover a deeper sense of capability.
