Mike Allsop on Conquering Mt Everest, Building Self Belief, and Living an Extraordinary Life

LIFE LIVERS ACADEMY

In this episode, I chat with airline pilot, Everest mountaineer, adventurer, extreme marathon competitor, speaker, and author, Mike Allsop - an ordinary family man proving that anybody can accomplish extraordinary things. We chat about Mikes near-death experiences including surviving a plane crash off the coast of Hawaii and dodging avalanches on the worlds gnarliest mountains. Mike is an ambitious guy who consistently sets big goals that stretch what he believes he is capable of. He has summited Everest in an unguided expedition, run 7 marathons in 7 continents in 7 days, completed the worlds highest marathon around Everest, a feat never before attempted, and has lived a life of extreme adventure where he has constantly faced fear and pushed his mental and physical limits. We discuss the mindsets and mental toughness required to summit Mt Everest, the techniques Mike uses to control his mind under pressure, why passion is a key ingredient to actually achieving your big goals, how to create unstoppable momentum towards your goals, and how Mike thinks of fear and acts with courage even in genuine life or death situations. Mike is a sought after keynote speaker and author who dedicates himself to showing that others too can achieve their dreams and ambitions by overcoming the fear of failure, building self-belief, and breaking each goal into a series of smaller steps. This is a fascinating and inspiring conversation with a man who has tested himself against the limits of human endurance lived a life full of challenge and adventure.

Mike Allsop and His Awesomeness

Awesomeness with Cam Calkoen

Airline pilot, Everest mountaineer, adventurer and extreme marathon competitor Mike Allsop is an ordinary family man proving that anybody can accomplish extraordinary things. Mike Allsop grew up in a single parent home in Auckland. Life wasn’t always easy. But Mike never wavered in his dream of becoming an airline pilot with Air New Zealand. He single-mindedly pursued this goal, breaking it down into smaller parts then focusing on each step in turn. He began by obtaining a pilot’s licence and a job with a small commuter airline. Things took a dramatic turn when a flight to deliver a Twin Otter aircraft from the USA to New Zealand led to a crash landing into the sea hundreds of kilometres off the coast of Hawaii in the dark of night. The US Coast Guard colonel who eventually rescued Mike and his crew commented that nobody else had ever survived a crash landing into that part of the ocean! As well as becoming an Air New Zealand captain, Mike harboured another ambition. One day, he wanted to stand upon the roof of the world and summit Everest. True to form, he broke the goal down and gained the necessary skills and experience by testing himself on difficult and potentially hazardous climbs across 6 different continents. Many were usually only tackled by vastly more experienced climbers. However Mike Allsop is living proof that his philosophy of ‘if you believe you can, you will’. He has reached every goal in spectacular fashion, including becoming an international airline pilot with Air New Zealand and ascending Everest in an unguided expedition.
