It all began as an impossibility by Coach Lei WangMay 25, 2021
It’s that time of the year again… May always brings back the memory of Mount Everest.
This year marks the 11th anniversary of my summit of Everest.
In 2004, I had a daydream about climbing Mount Everest, inspired by the film "Touching the Void." And, as an unathletic book nerd growing up in Beijing, I never imagined myself climbing this mountain one day.
When I eventually started hiking towards Everest Base Camp six years later, almost everyone on my team thought I was the least likely to succeed. I was the smallest, weakest, and slowest of the group. Despite this, I was the only woman on my team to reach the summit. Just 16 of our 25-person team made it to the top.
By all means, Everest began as an impossibility.
Since returning from Everest, I've been wondering what the most valuable lessons I learned on the mountain were.
I'll be sharing the most valuable lessons I learned on Everest in the coming weeks, as well as how they helped me succeed today. I hope they inspire you and assist you in achieving success in your own life!
