conditions, the high fatalities rates, and the harsh stamina that such

expeditions require.Myanswer to them is: “Never let your fearshold

youback fromyourdreams.”

But I believe that the key behind this climbing exposure is a

testimonial for rendering the impossible possible, my need for

achievement and my agony about life, ethics and ideals. It is also

aboutmynobleefforts to inspire, encourageand till, and then let the

harvest for the young people. It is a great goal to inspire the young

generation with principles such as commitment, exposure, tenacity,

andself-discipline. Thoseareprecisely theprinciples that broughtme

to the Himalayas andwhich also inspiremy ultimate next project to

ascend all seven highest summits in the seven continents

respectively. Life goes by and one day we are going to leave this

planet. For this reason let's bemoredecisive, and let's try to achieve

whateverwedream.

Thus, in a nutshell what droveme to this climbing challenge is

my tenacity for achievement. It is my belief that these giant

mountains offer me a wonderful physical and above all a mental

challenge tomy livingagonies. Tome this ismainlyamental game to

overcome fear, pain and death. I do believe that these giant

mountains are climbedwith themindaboveall. I love that challenge,

and most importantly, I believe that climbing these dazzling high
