047: No Barriers: Interview with Erik Weihenmayer Pt. 2

I’m continuing my conversation with blind adventurer, Erik Weihenmayer, in part two of his interview. Today we’re discussing failure, how trauma affects us and being confronted with setbacks. Erik has kayaked through rapids and climbed numerous mountains around the world including Mt. Everest. He uses his experiences to inspire others through his No Barriers mission. His mindset and advice will inspire you in your own life.
