If at first you don’t succeed…

How can you not love Sir Richard Branson?! The guy continues to live life as if each day was his last, all while at the helm of a global empire consisting of like 10,000 companies, or something like that. The guy redefines amazing. Yesterday I saw a tweet (how cool is it that you can stay in constant contact with his energy simply by following him on Twitter!) by him that I retweeted (of course) and wanted to blog about quickly.
While attempting to cross the Channel (between France and England that is) to mark/ celebrate his 60th birthday, he and his family and friends were forced to call it a day after the the boat rescue team called it off due to bad weather (perfect weather for kite surfing however!). We all know how this story will end of course (he becomes the first person to accomplish this feat) but what really caught my attention was his statement: “I don’t think I’ve ever done an adventure where I’ve succeeded the first time.”
