Description

My guest today is Alex Staniforth (@Alexstaniforth_) - Alex is an adventurer, speaker, author and charity ambassador.   He has made two attempts to climb Mount Everest but this isn’t your typical story about climbing Everest.  Suffering a mild form of epilepsy at nine years old shattered his confidence and self-esteem with panic attacks and anxiety a regular theme from his childhood.   Relentless bullying throughout school and a lifelong stammer in his speech left him - in his own words - with a  ‘victim’ mindset.  After experiencing paragliding on holiday aged just thirteen unearthed his passion for the outdoors he found a way to prove himself wrong, and choose his what challenges him! He began to question these self-limiting beliefs through outdoor challenges, and learned that we can’t always choose our challenges – but we can choose how we respond.
