In the spirit of inspiring, promoting and celebrating excellence…here’s a great story that will also inspire hope, courage, redemption and adventure…enjoy!
At a press conference, a Nepali man who was once the oldest climber to scale Mount Everest is attempting to regain that title, at age 85.
Min Bahadur Sherchan plans to climb the 29,035-foot peak next month during a window of favorable weather on the summit.
When asked why he was attempting such a magnificent feat at his advanced age…he replied;
“I want to be the oldest person to scale Everest again to be an inspiration for humankind, a boost for the elderly people and an encouragement for youths,”
He continued by saying…”It will be a message for everyone that age is no obstacle to achieving their dreams.”
The grandfather of 17 and great-grandfather of six first scaled Everest in May 2008, when he was 76, but his record was broken 5 years later by an 80-year-old Japanese climber named Yuichiro Miura on May 23, 2013.
It’s worth noting here that the youngest person to climb Everest was 13 year old Jordan Romero from the United States who reached the summit on May 22, 2010.
What that means is it’s never too early nor too late to elevate your expectations, to aim high, to go after your own personal
Everest and win.
This is the only life you’ve got…so dream big, set unreasonably bold and challenging goals and do everything in your power to…
Make your life extraordinary!
