Speaker: Mr. Erik Weihenmayer
Through Erik Weihenmayer’s groundbreaking adventures around the world, he has explored and defined what it means to live a no barriers life, describing it as a map we build to navigate and pursue a life that matters. Central to this journey is a mindset to continually challenge ourselves to grow and evolve—to climb while others camp. Mr Weihenmayer describes the key components for shattering barriers and pioneering possibilities, which start with a powerful vision to guide us and reach into the darkness. By relentlessly innovating new systems and approaches along the way, we pioneer our way to solutions. As a blind adventurer who has climbed Mount Everest and kayaked the Grand Canyon, Mr Weihenmayer understands better than most that barriers are real, not merely perceived, and that obstacles encountered can either stop us in our tracks or be harnessed to propel ourselves to new places we would never otherwise experience. Mr Weihenmayer calls this alchemy, the process of turning lead into gold. “With an alchemist,” he says, “you can throw them in the midst of a fierce competitive
environment, strip away their resources, throw roadblocks in front of them, and they’ll still find a way to win— not despite adversity, but because of it.” This journey cannot happen alone. By building a great rope team that shares our vision we become stronger. The gifts we earn along our journey represent our personal summits, but it is only when we share these gifts that we elevate our communities as well as ourselves.
Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to:
• Understand how to harness the power of adversity as fuel.
• Recognize the importance of building a strong team.
• Develop a no barriers mindset.
