The spirit of adventure was perhaps best captured during journalist and explorer Henry Stanley’s journey through Zanzibarin order to find Dr. David Livingston in 1871. Trekking through the unforgiving territory of the African landscape, Stanley underwent and then later wrote about an amazing adventure, all in pursuit of finding the doctor, who had been presumed to be missing.
However, the energy can be found in many adventure quests. Today, thrill seekers often create amazing journeys of their own in addition to practicing extreme sports in order to get the adrenaline rush that comes from living on the edge.
Further takes on the concept of adventure were advanced by famous fiction writer Ernest Hemingway, who famously tackled many African expedition and adventure islands, and surmounted many extreme challenges, only to later report his adventures to his world-wide audience through many of the most classic works of literature ever written.
Modern television shows like The Amazing Race also encapsulate the spirit of adventure that many admire, pitting pairs of adventurers against each other in a race around the world. The program has been one of the most popular reality television shows in history.
Motivational-speakers.com features many keynote speakers who spread the messages of overcoming obstacles and surmounting impossible odds to audiences worldwide. Such motivational stories offer hope to those who are attempting to accomplish difficult tasks, and would be perfect to inspire your employees, students or other members of the audience at your next corporate function, business meeting or at many other kinds of events.
Among those on our roster of speakers is Dick Rutan, a pilot who can claim the honor of having made the first unrefueled, non-stop flight around the world. Rutan, whose many adventures include a treacherous plane crash in the Arctic, used a balloon to sail around the world, becoming the first to accomplish such a feat.
Additionally, “Antarctic” Mike Pierce is available for speaking engagements. Pierce trained for an amazing marathon run through the frigid tundra by hanging out in a commercial freezer beforehand. Also having a background in sales and in motivational speaking, Pierce is adept at inspiring and motivating audiences to achieve the impossible.
Many other famous adventurers are available through Motivational-speakers.com, all of whom share the spirit of adventure and the will to survive that form the basis of some truly powerful and emotional tales of beating the odds. We could all use a little help in life to choose your own adventure, leading us to success, happiness and uncompromising thrill.
