Corbin’s Interview 

What does limitless living mean for you?

Limitless living means doing what I love & making goals and dreams come true. Knowing that I can do whatever I put my heart and mind to. I’m lucky enough to be in a very creative industry where I can think of places to go then fly there, dream up a video concept, then make it. It’s an amazing position and I am very grateful.

What has been your biggest challenge in life where you were faced with limitation in some way? What supported you to move through it?

I think it’s normal to be faced with what feels like a brick wall in your way from time to time. Sometimes it’s something really tough, other times its more your mentality, not being able to clearly see a way through it. My parents & grandparents have been the biggest inspirations to vocally push me to keep going and keep creating my own destiny. It’s also important to recognize these moments and consciously try and work through them mentally – there is often a way through staring you in the face, you’ve just got to find it! 

How often do you follow your intuition/gut feel in life? Why?

Everyday, I have something inside me that keeps saying don’t stop keep going and it will be all good! I’m convinced I’m meant to be on this earth doing exactly what I’m doing whether is skateboarding, TV presenting or any crazy opportunity that pops up in between. I’m about to jump out of a helicopter on a skateboard for a Westfield campaign I’m working on.. No time to think too much about things or take life too seriously.

So what is it that you absolutely love to do in life? Can you describe how you feel and the space your in when your doing it?

My main passions in life are skateboarding and exercise. I also love being exposed to new things that might even frighten me or push me out of my comfort zone. I struggled with anxiety in my early 20s. It completely took over and doctors were continually trying to get me to prescribe to medicines to deal with it. I found it within me to cope with it my own way and I’m a much stronger and better person for it. Skateboarding was a huge part of the process. It makes me feel like anything is possible and I feel creative & free.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 

That’s the hardest question I have ever been asked…

What does living from your heart mean to you and do you find it easy to express how you feel?

I have a very tight group of people that I express my views and feelings to. It has to be that way when you are in a job like mine. Non stop travel and meeting new people. You have to be ON all the time. No time not to be.

What do you love most about yourself?

Its a tough one to answer but I’d say my ability to always find the fun! No one likes a guy who takes life or himself too seriously.

What’s the biggest lie you once believed was true?

Letting people convince me I wasn’t able to achieve anything that I put my mind to. Got news for those naysayers… I’m here and I hope you stopped being negative and concentrated on yourself instead of being a dampener on others!

Do you ask questions, or do you just settle for what you know?

Never stop asking questions and never stop learning!!

So lets say in this moment you are totally limitless, free and happy. What would you love to do next?

Exactly what I’m about to do. Be the most motivated person I can be and stay hungry!
