Facing Death, Tools For Change, Human Connection, Divine Spirit, And Ancient Wisdom: Living A Life Of No Excuses — Kyle Maynard Part 1 Of 2
Prepare your ear holes for the first in a special two-part interview with adventurer, author, speaker, athlete and incredibly inspiring human being by the name of Kyle Maynard (http://kyle-maynard.com).
Over the last few years I've opened myself up more to the idea of fate directing my life, or at least pushing me in the right direction, and I've come to definitely believe my meeting and discussion with Kyle is one directed by the fates, or the gods, or whatever you want to call it. After a chance meeting with his friend Lexi at a Wal-Mart in Joshua Tree, California last year, I came to learn later after we initially connected that Kyle was a mere few miles away at the time. So when he offered an interview, I jumped at the chance without hesitation.
Kyle was born a quadruple congenital amputee, meaning his arms and legs end near the elbows and knees. However his spirit has pushed him to pursue a truly extraordinary life. Kyle has competed as an MMA athlete, achieved champion status in wrestling, became the first quadruple amputee to summit mount Kilimanjaro (the tallest free-standing mountain on Earth) without the aid of prosthetics, modelled for Abercrombie & Fitch, as well as been a guest on Oprah, Tim Ferriss' podcast, and featured in just about every media outlet on the planet that matters.
In this first part, we cover a range of topics from philosophy, to optimising your health, why Kyle believes human connection is so important, some of the pitfalls of what the internet is doing to harm our connection with others and the world, his near-death experience on the top of a frozen mountain, the teachers that are all around you, and so much more.
This is part one of a two-part interview, with the second part launching this coming Monday. In the second episode, Kyle talks about his experiences with plant medicine or psychedelics, which is the first time he's ever discussed this topic in a public forum. Stay tuned for that.
