The Adversity Advantage: Turning Everyday Struggles into Everyday Greatness

"Sometimes the crevasses were so wide I couldn't feel the other side with my trekking poles. The only way across was a literal leap of faith. The members of my climbing team would tap their own poles on the opposite bank...I knew I had to take ownership, step up, and be a leader."

SUMMIT FOUR: Pioneer Possibilities
"There is nothing about my story of skiing down [18,510-foot Mount] Elbrus blind that you can't replicate with your own creative, gutsy approach to your challenges."

SUMMIT FIVE: Pack Light, Pack Right
"Either we pack with deliberation, considering what's important to us, or we are crushed by an array of diversions."
