What thoughts and feeling occupy us when we face our highest personal mountains? How can we be dedicated in pursuit of our goals, despite daunting hardships? This inspiring book is the best of best-selling author Reinhold Messner, the first person to reach the summit of Everest solo and without supplemental oxygen. Organized around his lessons on life and leadership, this book outlines the secrets to overcoming failure, pushing the limits of the feasible, and achieving lasting success.
Like most genuine leaders, Messner transcends his field (mountain climber and expedition leader) and assumes a larger-than-life public image and persona. Privately, he remains a craftsman first, but his feats and his fame have also made him a spokesman. And in both areas, he is a proven winner. It is one thing to have survived a few near death experiences on mountains and in deserts and ice fields, but it is quite another to have learned so much and shared so deeply with the intent to benefit other people.
Moving Mountains describes the lessons Messner learned through a life of breaking through mental and physical barriers. From their reading of the book, individuals, teams, and organizations will learn the skills necessary to pick themselves up and move beyond their trials and failures so that they too can reach unparalleled heights of success.
