On May 25, 2001, Erik Weihenmayer became the only blind person to reach the summit of Mt. Everest. In 2008 he completed the Seven Summits, the highest point on every continent. Since then Erik has co-founded not merely an organization, but rather a movement called No Barriers. The mission is to help people with challenges, face barriers head on, embrace a pioneering and innovative spirit and team up with great people to live rich and meaningful lives. Their motto is "what's within you is stronger than what's in your way." To this aim, Erik continues to challenge himself to live a No Barriers Life and in September 2014 he kayaked the entire 277-miles of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.
Erik shares the story of his remarkable journey and how to get the most out of life. This episode will leave you inspired and ready to attack life!
