What is the most common thing that drives people to climb Mt. Everest?
I imagine you've met a lot of interesting people during you treks up the mountains. Was there a common theme among the people you met? What is the most common thing that drives people to climb Mt. Everest? Or was it different for everyone?
Donald Trump was not given a chance in a million to make it all the way to the White House. In fact, he was laughed at for even trying. You may want to read that last sentence one more time.
It doesn't matter how serious others take your dreams; it matters only how serious you take them. You can't do everything, but you can do anything.
Was there ever a time that "showing up" got you in trouble?
It seems that you've experienced wonderful things by showing up and visiting exotic locations around the world. Was there ever a time that "showing up" got you in trouble?
Eric West replied:
Great question. The Showing Up brand was originally named No Mistakes. The No Mistakes mindset was based on the idea that no matter what one encountered in an endeavor, it would lead to the next step in a progession... hence No Mistakes. All of us encounter setbacks, but that is part of the Showing Up process, and strangely, part of the fun.
