Learn more about Ian Taylor Trekking setting goals. Ian gets interviewed all the time, but here are some questions he was asked for a US publication.
1). What is your life’s purpose?
To inspire change through endurance, challenge and adventure so others can benefit.
2). How are you living your purpose?
I have lived my dream climbing Everest to the top in 2008 to build the Mt. Everest Primary school in Uganda with charity Fields of Life. I am now an ambassador for the charity Fields of Life. I also lead expeditions to Everest Base Camp, Kilimanjaro, Machu Picchu and many other destinations around the world. Our business supports the Mt. Everest school and work of Fields of Life. I have a new target of raising $2,000,000 for water projects in East Africa. I have also set up a trust in Nepal after the Earthquake in 2015 and we encourage people to contribute, get involved and help rebuild the remote village of Goli in the lower Khumbu region of Nepal.
3). How did you find your purpose?
My mission is guided by my faith. I was given the opportunity to climb Everest out of many personal challenges I faced in life. I believed I was better than what others believed I could do. I wanted to do something big. In 2005 I was 27 and while on a trip to Peru my friend and I decided that we should climb Mt. Everest. We set our goal at climbing four mountains on four continents in one year to build the Mt. Everest primary school. I had many challenges along the way but those challenges shaped me, gave me purpose and helped me understand the who I was and how I needed to conduct myself.
4). What advice do you have for purpose seekers?
I could talk for a long time on this question. If you are already purposely seeking answers you are well on your way. Set some goals, seek out expert advice, immerse yourself in knowledge, information, be different, be a market place leader for your goals, believe in yourself and surround yourself with great people.
5). What resources do you recommend?
I believe you need to listen to all people, perspectives so you can formulate well rounded ideas. Once you have your purpose in place, seeking our experts in the areas you are trying to become an expert in and read as much as you can in all areas of your purpose.
