1. Find your way off the beaten path.
Part of going on an expedition is embracing risk and for me that's what it's all about because without those risks you don't get the rewards that can come out of these things.
2. Embrace failure at every opportunity.
Periodic failure is inevitable; however, the best lessons are those we pull from our perceived failures. Remember, progress begins where your comfort zone ends.
3. Distance makes the heart grow stronger.
My model for success involves taking the leap, embracing the risk of failure, and pushing my boundaries to, not only reach my goal but, grow as a person.
4. Starve to reveal the beast within yourself.
Desperation can make people access the part of them that is suppressed for most of us. People often get derailed on the path to success because they are afraid to fail.
5. Some races have no finish line.
Some feats are indeed insurmountable and it's not about what happens, but how we bounce back from failure that defines us.
Pushing your limits is an invitation for failure, pain, and, oftentimes, a recipe for doubt and fear. Know this: every person has the tools and capabilities to break down the barriers that lie before them. Don't be defined by apathy, don't let fear dictate your decisions and direction in life. Find your passion, be willing to suffer while doing so, get stronger and make the choice to put yourself to the test.
Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.
