Most Difficult Situation You Were In

I would say the single most difficult was repelling out of a Black Hawk in Air Assault school in the army, when I was deathly afraid of heights. To this day I never felt more terror than the moment I jumped out. But I remember that just a few seconds after, while in mid air with only the rope keeping me from my death, that fear suddenly turned to confidence and exhilaration and it was maybe the most fun I've ever had.

I don't know how I got over my fear enough to jump. I just sort of did it. Ultimately I think that's all there is to it. When faced with whatever is super challenging to you, you just do it.
