How to make every day an adventure
The wilderness teaches us valuable lessons about ourselves, others and the world around us. These lessons can save our lives when we are up a mountain or down a ravine, but they can also improve our daily lives by giving us the skills and insights to understand our situation and the opportunities and risks around us. Bear Grylls shares the lessons he has learnt the muddy way to show us how we can set and achieve our goals – and have more fun a long the way.
Bear Grylls' Survival Guide for Life is packed with stories from Bear's adventures and SAS training that are thrilling, emotional and revealing. By showing the reader how he has dealt with setbacks and seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Bear helps readers plot a better course towards their dreams.
Life in the wilderness teaches us to be humble in the face of the things we cannot control. Some days the weather is too bad, or nightfall prevents progress. But it also teaches us to get in touch with our instincts, overcome obstacles, seize opportunity and face up to danger. Taking in different aspects of Bear's life and career – Dreaming, Preparation, Team Work, Resilience, Doubts, Endurance, Reflection etc – these inspirational stories will encourage and motivate readers to make the most of whatever situation they find themselves in. This is not a self-help book in the traditional sense, nor is it a manual on how to be slightly more effective or marginally more successful. It is simply a collection of stories and adventures that reveal something profound about the human spirit to show that we are all capable of more.
