The First Cancer Survivor To Summit Mt. Everest with Sean Swarner
Nothing has meaning but the meaning you give it.
What that means is, you decide how you respond to the circumstances presented to you every day.
Do you focus on the money you lost in the stock market or on the lessons you learned and the experience you gained? Do you focus on giving the best presentation of your life or on not making any mistakes?
At the end of the day, it’s up to you to decide whether you are the victim or the victor of your life.
Sean Swarner was diagnosed with two deadly, different, and unrelated forms of cancer, once at the age of thirteen and again at the age of sixteen.
His chances of survival were so low, he’d have had a better chance of winning the lottery multiple times with the same numbers! But that didn’t stop him.
With a belief of “you attract what you focus on,” Sean defied the odds and survived.
He went on to redefine the impossible by being the first cancer survivor to climb to the top of Mt. Everest, with only one lung!
From there he stood atop the highest point on all 7 continents, skied to the South and North Poles, and completed the Hawaii Ironman.
Sean also serves as a source of inspiration as the founder of the non-profit organization, The CancerClimber Association, as the author of the book “Keep Climbing,” and as a motivational speaker to corporations, universities, and other organizations around the globe.
In this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life, Sean shares how he was able to beat cancer twice, why he chose to climb to the highest peak in the world, and how he is dedicated to helping others tap into their inner power and potential.
