In this episode of the Ascend podcast, we are joined by Jimmy Nelson. He traveled the world to some of the remotest places on Earth to document some of the most fantastic indigenous cultures left on the planet today. He wanted to discover how the rest of the world is threatening to change their way of life forever. But most importantly, he wanted to create an ambitious aesthetic photographic document that would stand the test of time.
Within this podcast there are some great lessons I learned
Lesson (1): Nothing is inherently a blessing or a curse. There are only challenges, and it is up to you to decide what to do with those challenges.
Lesson (2) – Be generous with your resources. You never know when someone you helped along the path will be able to return the favor.
Lesson (3): Love, compassion, and kindness should always trump religious or social dogma.
Lesson (4): Comfort and technology do not necessarily equate to happiness. Happiness is more consistently found in meeting daily challenges and maintaining close contact with those who you love. Your tribe.
