"The MountainWorld....."


I am always seeking adventurous things inspirational and motivational and recently I've found "The MountainWorld Blog"...
Presented here are, "Words About Mount Everest, Mountains, And Motivation from Professional Speaker, Climber, and Photographer Jake Norton"...
His enthusiasms as an adventurer are boundless... I have so enjoyed his posts of insights and quotes. Jake collects quotes from the adventure & wisdom literature as I have, cherishing their relevance and significance, while pondering over their hidden gems of meaning...
This so reminds me of my own journey in discovering and choosing all the quotes within the 'Adventure Muse' which I place with each Summit Stone...
A key theme within Jake's blog and within the essence of his presentations would seem to be creating motivation in one's life... something we could all muse more closely over...
Jake also has spectacular images of vivid photography on his site of Everest, adventure sports, landscapes, and nature. These have been featured in publications such as "Outside Magazine", "National Geographic Adventure", and books including "Ghosts Of Everest", and his own book entitled "What Is Your Everest"...
I greatly admire his accomplishments like studying Buddhism, being a Mountain Guide, the photographic achievements, the many expeditions to the Himalayas, Peru, Africa, the Alps, and on the Mallory & Irvine quest...
Jake believes in giving back & passing forward through his blog, with the peoples of Nepal & Tibet and 'Porters Progress', in his musings about 'Why We Climb' and Teamwork, as a motivational speaker, especially in encouraging us all to keep our dreams alive, and in his insightful summit perspectives...
Jake is an amazing fellow adventurer... I will often visit and enjoy 'The MountainWorld', as the ordinary wanderer that I am, for real inspiration...
