Persistence Hunting

Watch this and marvel at our physical and mental stamina as a species. We are built to persist in the harshest conditions of this world. All we have to do is put thought into action and we have a damn good chance of achieving our objectives, whatever they may be. One might argue that persistence is the single most important factor in reaching our goals in life. That’s not to say that we shouldn’t prudently evaluate risk before taking action; nor is it to say that there’s never a time to cut our losses–but we have every reason to be confident in our raw material as humans such that we shouldn’t let the fear of failure hold us back from trying something new and different. And once we step out and take a risk, we should do so confidently and ready to summon the powers of human persistence.

    Amazing! Such lean bodies. No heart disease, diabetes, etc and all the stamina in the world plus all the persistence in the world! The Kalahari Dessert hunters… memories of my Anthropology class many years ago.

    This is amazing. While this shows great physical fitness and a more unique look at a culture and their hunting ritual, one must imagine how that run must have felt without the nike’s he was rocking. Imagine a home made set of shoes or even barefoot. Thats where my mind is blown…

    Cam,

    I couldn’t agree with you more. How hot and sharp must that sand be?! And in addition to the Nikes, consider the shorts and plastic water bottle. The ancient guys probably wore nothing to support or protect their family jewels, and at best had some sort of leather canteen to carry their water. Crazy.
