Balancing the Urban Mountain

What does it mean to have a Perfect Life?

Climbing mountains is where I feel most alive. It offers views beyond the horizon and the pride of achieving new adventures. When in the mountains, the countless hours and millions of steps test my ability; which require new skills to lead toward a deeper sense of myself.

My quest is to stand on top of the highest peak in each of the Seven Continents. Summiting all “Seven Summits” is regarded as a mountaineering challenge and is noted as a exploration and mountaineering accomplishment. They include: Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, Kosciuszko, and Vinson.

My hopes with this book is to inspire one to search and discover their life passion no matter what it might be. We get caught up in the next promotion, life’s day-to-day pressures or our family requirements. Most of the time, civilization distracts us from our true desires.
