When daredevil Nik Wallenda stepped out on to the wire for his successful two-part walk between two Chicago skyscrapers on Sunday night, being afraid was the last thing on his mind.
"There's no time for fear,'' Wallenda said on TODAY Monday. "I have to stay focused on what I'm doing. If I let fear enter my body then that's when an accident can happen so I try to just remain very positive and very focused."
And if you're wondering how the Wallenda will follow up this death-defying stunt, he says he already has his next wire walk lined up, one which involves something he has never done before.
"I'm working on re-creating my great-grandfather's greatest walk, which was over Tallulah Gorge, Georgia - 600 feet high, 1,000 feet long,'' Wallenda said. "He did two headstands on the wire. I've never done a headstand on the wire in public, and I'm training for that. I want to re-create that walk."

- On deciding not to take a selfie in the midst of his skyscraper walk: "There were a couple big gusts of wind that hit me in the face and kind of stood me upright. I was leaning into it, and I thought, 'You know, maybe I shouldn't do this.'
- On walking blindfolded for the first time: "Up until recently, I thought it was impossible to walk a wire without vision. To take that important element out was extremely challenging."
