Dream and Achieve: A​ Real Inspirational Story about Goals

In this video post, Colin O’Brady traces his ultimate inspirational story about goals. Starting from a tragic burn accident towards ascending to the 7 tallest mountains and two poles on earth – in world record time.

A dream doesn’t become a reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. – Collin Powell

His story is so inspiring that I cannot help but share this to all of you. I guarantee that you will never be the same after fully watching his video. It is truly an inspirational story about goals.

Colin, a native of Portland, is a testament to mindfulness, setting audacious goals and achieving them despite overwhelming odds. In the year 2016, Colin set two world records:

  • He became the fastest person ever to complete both the Seven Summits (climbing the highest peak on every continent) and
  • the Explorers Grand Slam (the Seven Summits + skiing to the last degree of the North and South Poles).

He completed the challenges in 131 and 139 days, respectively. His non-profit, Beyond 7/2, strives to inspire kids to lead active, healthy lives and pursue their biggest dreams.

Thus, without ado, watch his personal account of his real life goals and achievements:

Inspirational Quotes

Here are words from Colin O’Brady himself that will remind you to set your own goals and achieve them:

Achievement is not for the select few. Achievement is simply for those who don’t quit. It is for those who set goals. It is for those who put the most steps in front of the others. Achievement is for those who can overcome the greatest obstacle of all – their mind.

So set a goal. Take the first steps, the chair is in front of you. And when your steps get you there, push the chair further. When you feel like giving up, put your boots back on. Let go of fear.

Like him, I want you to remember that you can achieve whatever your mind can conceive. There is always a connection between your Purpose, Passion and Potential.
