Ep 97 - Jim Davidson - Learning Resilience on Everest

The Genuinely Interested Podcast

Jim Davidson is a resilience expert and motivational speaker. From his 36 years as a high-altitude climber and expedition leader, Jim distills compelling stories and uplifting lessons about resilience and reaching one's goals. Jim's new book "The Next Everest: Surviving the Mountain's Deadliest Day and Finding the Resilience to Climb Again" is a harrowing tale of Jim's time on Mount Everest when a 7.8-magnitude earthquake released avalanches all around him and his team. Jim and I discussed: The events of that day when the earthquake hit Why being resilient is so important Why Everest is so popular How important self-awareness is on the mountains His career as a geologist Life lessons you learn on the mountain And much more... Jim Davidson My Take: The mountains are an amazing place, they can teach us so much about ourselves, give us lessons that we can take into the real world, and change our perspective on life. They can also be extremely unforgiving, ruthless, and grim. We must tread with caution and respect, and if we are lucky, the mountain will let us summit it.  Support the Podcast
