John Beede - Cultivating Resiliency, Rites of Passage, and Shifting Your Finish Line ManTalks Podcast

    • Relationships

What does resiliency mean? How do you build the ability to bounce back after an event that shakes you to your core? How does it change you? To help answer these I spoke with adventurer, author, entrepreneur, humanitarian, and keynote speaker John Beede, and we dove straight into the hard stuff. It was a real pleasure to chat with John about what drew him to mountains, his struggles and victories, his new book, and the pressure men are often under to either tough it out, nice it out, or numb it out. John Beede has climbed to the top of the tallest mountain on every continent, including Mount Everest. During the 9 year adventure, he somehow survived avalanches, pulmonary edema, tribal warfare, and a whole lot of Clif bars. He’s a worldwide adventurer who has traveled to 65 countries, written 3 books, and given live presentations to nearly 1 million live teen and middle school audience members. His new book is called The Warrior Challenge: 8 Quests for Boys to Grow Up with Kindness, Courage, and Grit.
