Attributes of Success
Successful people approach situations differently from the rest of us. They frame challenges in a different way than most people. They have developed skills and traits that will carry them further than the rest.
If you want to achieve your wildest dreams and become phenomenally successful, you’ll need to find ways to go from ordinary to extraordinary.

My Private Everest
My Private Everest, the extraordinary story of one of Ireland’s most celebrated and controversial adventurers Pat Falvey
The series reveals what has driven the mountaineer and serial entrepreneur to follow dreams that are bigger and bolder than imaginable.
Pat said; “My Private Everest is about showing people that you can achieve your dreams, and you can do anything you want to do if you learn the right attributes.”
Want with a passion
Want is the most important ingredient in helping us identify and pursue our goals. Without want, it is impossible to move forward. Our goals come into clear view when we act on our wants. We shouldn’t feel guilty about what we want. We must be fearless about it; we must give ourself permission to feel it, to express it and pursue it.

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he’d stuck it out.
Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are –
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.
