Soaring into Success with Norman Kent | Win the Day® podcast
September 5, 2023

In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.

Edward J. Stieglitz

We're making history together today! 

This episode is part of a successful world record attempt where 100 skydivers, each over 60 years old, jumped out of an airplane and created a formation on the way down. Check out the video version of this episode to see the clip that has raised the bar for what a podcast intro can do — and how age should never stop you from experiencing what you want:

Norman Kent has forged a reputation for walking the road less traveled. Throughout his extraordinary life, two passions – his search for adventure and love of photography – have been his constant companions. 

Norman embarked on his first jungle expedition at 14 years old where he developed a strong desire to capture the beauty he saw and share it with the world. At 19 years old, Norman made his first skydive – a moment that would change his life forever. 

Since that time, Norman has worked on blockbuster films like Cliffhanger, Kingsman: The Secret Service, and Godzilla. He’s also made his own skydiving films, consulted to special forces units, and helped facilitate record-breaking feats all over the world – as well jumping into ceremonies of both the summer and winter Olympic Games.

As a skydiving pioneer, Norman has more than 30,000 jumps to his name, including the first expedition to ever jump onto the North Pole, a joint exercise with the US and Russian military. In the skydiving community, Norman has earned the respect as the world’s best skydiving cinematographer.

In this episode:

  • What drives Norman’s continued love of adventure
  • How to summon courage during your most fearful moments
  • Some of the most fascinating moments from his acclaimed career (including the mindset that makes Tom Cruise perform at such a high level), and
  • What Norman’s time at the coalface of death has taught him about life.

Before we begin, the right bit of inspiration can completely change the trajectory of someone’s life, so if there’s a friend or loved one who needs to hear this episode or could use some help to Win the Day, share it with them right now.
