I had the pleasure of being introduced to Mount Tallac High School nearly four years ago. Mount Tallac High School is truly a place of hope and perseverance. Most of the students attending Mount Tallac High School have dealt with many life challenges from a young age and are fighting to gain any chance at opportunity. I was truly inspired by the students and teachers at this school and their ability to overcome extraordinary circumstances.
I had the privilege of speaking to the students about my life challenges and adventures. I took my experience from my expedition to Aconcagua and applied the expedition mentality to actual life experiences. I see great similarities between climbing mountains and the ups and downs of life which is probably why I find enjoyment in the challenges of mountaineering.
Although I was there to give a presentation it was me learning from the students and teachers. They continue to serve as reminders as I come up against set-backs and hard circumstances.
Please click on the link below to view the presentation I gave to the students and teachers. You will notice many great quotes and thoughts, all of which help guide my life on a daily basis. I believe wisdom is timeless and the quotes you will see on the presentation span centuries, gender and cultures. I hope you enjoy the presentation and please leave us a comment with any quotes that have been inspirational to your life.
