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.
