I dint know about Philippe Petit until I saw the trailer of the movie, The Walk releasing today. The movie is a true story based on Philippe Petit, who walked on High Wire between the World Trade Center Towers without any safety belt. Not only just walking, but also performing on the wire.
I will watch the movie some time soon. Philippe Petit made something possible which a human can never think that it is possible. After reading and watching few of his videos I could belive that it is possible and someone has done it, really its hard to belive. This motivates a person to live life at the edge.
Check out the trailer of the movie The Walk
Also do watch this video of Philippe Petit in TED and learn how to cheat the impossible and make your dreams true.
Really, this one gives inpiration to me.
