Today on the show I have a dear friend and arguably the foremost living Explorer on the planet: Mike Horn. I have had the incredible fortune of traveling to some really amazing places with Mike such as the South China sea around South Africa and the Amazon off the coast of Brazil. Some of my most inspiring and best moments of my life have been tagging along with Mike on his adventures. Mike is also one of the hardest working, stubborn bad-ass is that I know. He’s explored the Peruvian Andes with a raft and a paraglide, crossed South America solo over 6-months, swam down the Amazon River in a hydrospeed, circumnavigated the Earth along the equator for more than 40,000 kilometers unmotorized by boat, bike, and on foot. He’s faced extreme temperatures crossing the North pole during winter and climbed many of the world’s highest peaks such as Gasherbrum I and II, Broad Peak, Makalu; all without oxygen. Among his many adventures, Mike also works to share his knowledge, passion and experience with others through his youth mentorship programs, coaching, and media. In this episode we get into:
- how to inspire and motivate yourself
- how to dream big and the one thing we need to achieve big things in the midst of hardship
- how to persevere through what others might think is impossible
- the changes Mike has seen in our planet as he’s circumnavigated it almost 30 times
- and so much more
