What are you willing to risk for your dreams?

Lost near lethal crevasses and cliffs in a blinding whiteout blizzard is the last place anyone would want to be…

Windy Corner on Denali has claimed lives, fingers, and toes. What would make someone brave lethal weather, crevasses, and slick ice to attempt to summit North America’s highest mountain? Denali has claimed over one hundred lives. It seems like the place for risky adrenaline seekers.

In this book, the author shares the lessons Denali teaches on managing goals and risks. Everyone takes chances at some time in their lives, even if it’s driving down the highway. Becoming a risk manager rather than a risk taker is what will keep you alive during difficult times.

“The long grind will sap your spirit. Do what is necessary to keep yourself going despite the discomfort.”

Experience the cold, solitude, and uncertainty of life on high mountains. Use the free achievement guide in the back of the book to start your quest for success today. Apply the message, build resilience, and overcome adversities in your life.
