Overcome

Realizing your dreams, and life, is inevitably about overcoming challenges and obstacles – both the internal and the external ones. But, it’s not about what happens to us, it’s about how we respond to what happens. It’s about being the Victor and not the victim. In this category of Overcome, you’ll find inspiring and insightful stories, insights, and topics about overcoming those obstacles and challenges we all face – such as fear, doubt, failure, limiting beliefs, scarcity, tragedy, loss, and transitions. Yes you can!

Video: Change Your Mindset and Achieve Anything

In this epic Talk, Colin O'Brady, explains his journey back from a tragic burn accident only to ascend to the 7 tallest mountains and two poles on earth - in world record time. His idea is centered around mindfulness and how one can achieve anything no matter the circumstances. Colin, a native of Portland, is a testament to mindfulness, setting audacious goals and achieving them despite overwhelming odds. Last year, Colin set two world records: He became the fastest person ever to complete both the Seven Summits (climbing the highest peak on every continent) and the Explorers Grand Slam (the Seven Summits + skiing to the last degree of the North and South Poles). He completed the challenges in 131 and 139 days, respectively. His nonprofit, Beyond 7/2, strives to inspire kids to lead active, healthy lives and pursue their biggest dreams.
