Been really interested in Rodney Mullen since I saw the Bones Brigade Documentary about a year ago. Rodney was a freestyle skater from the 80’s and pretty much single handily developed all the technical tricks that have become a part of modern day street skating. I found this video and just felt there was so much great perspective and parallels to what we discuss about challenging yourself,  getting out of your comfort zone, picking yourself back up if you fail, surrounding yourself with inspiring people and changing your understanding of what is possible. etc.  Good Stuff!
