Everyone needs a word or 2 of encouragement now and again, and most definitely someone to look up to. An example of just such a person is Bear Grylls, a British explorer and, quite frankly, a modern day hero among men.
"Bear spent three years with the British Special Forces.
During this time he had a horrendous parachuting accident whilst in southern Africa and broke his back in three places.
Yet two years later, after severe rehabilitation, he overcame the odds to become the youngest British climber ever to reach the summit of Mount Everest and return alive."
Quite an achievement, and clear demonstration of what setting goals for yourself, and having the strength of mind and character to fulfill them can do for you.
