Life orbits around adventure. It is your livelihood. Adventure is the typical sense of ascending high mountains in isolated regions of the world. Adventure is the mindful sense of breathing each day, each development, and in each relationship with objective, emphasis, and humour.
Fluctuating your attention from physical adventure to mindful adventure has not been easy. In fact, it is the hardest thing that you can ever attempt. Bringing adventure into the core being of your life has been fraught with challenge and learning. The reward though is a level of engagement and awareness that is deeply satisfying and joyous.

You can find yourself standing on top of one of the peaks of mountains in the world – an experience that your colleagues, friends, and family looked at with awe and wonder. Yet that day you felt neither. You feel separated and indifferent to experience the ultimate lifetime goal with others. You will realize this numbness which permeates most aspects in your life.
Do not lose the touch with the true spirit of adventure, the spirit that infuses vitality and radiance into your lives.At the core, adventure is the willingness to commit to an uncertain outcome with an open heart and a willingness to learn and engage. It is the ability to take a jump into the unknown with mindfulness and charm. Outlined this way, opportunity for adventure presents itself to you everyday.
Adventure as made up of five fundamentals.
Adventure is a great endeavour. It is the ability to think big and think superior about who you are, how you live, and what you can do in the world.

Adventure is total obligation. It is the spirit of enthusiasm to embrace challenge and move toward success. It is the acknowledgement that total commitment does not mean blind faith or brazen disregard, but it is confidence and belief in the face of challenge.
Adventure has an indefinite result. A predetermined result is not an adventure but a packaged experience or amusement ride. Life is ambiguous – get relaxed with it! It is the credit that there will be adversity and discomfort, but that an uncertain outcome is a gift of possibility.
Adventure is tolerance for adversity. It is your ability to be resilient to face the challenge and willingness to laugh, use humour, and graceful during difficult situations. The opportunities each of you face to take a step back and acknowledge the sometimes absurd aspects of being human, embrace it, and continue on.
Adventure is great camaraderie. While our lives can sometimes feel lonely, we can’t do it alone. It takes a team to support living in joy, kindness, and thankfulness.
