9 Oct #104: Everesting X2 with Adventurer Brad Weimert by jon vroman in Podcasts no Comments Think of the last time you accomplished a major goal in your life. In what way did that experience shape who you are now? Setting a big goal with a strong ‘why’ has the power to push us forward—even when we don’t want to—and can lead us towards achieving our ultimate potential. Which is why I’m excited to be talking with my buddy Brad Weimert today. With only 45 days to train, Brad has set an ambitious challenge to hike the equivalent of climbing Mt. Everest twice. His goal is to raise $58,058 for Explore Austin—an organization that helps mold the youth of Austin into amazing, well rounded adults by teaching them life skills through adventure.

He reminds us that if there’s something you’re not doing because you’re uncomfortable or afraid, that’s probably your cue for moving towards it. The ripples that are created as a result, have the power to completely transform your world.
