One of the world’s most inspiring humans, Erik Weihenmayer, is back on the Dream Big Podcast. Erik lost his vision by the age of 13, but he resisted the idea that blindness would sweep him to the sidelines of life. He’s the first blind person to reach the summit of Mt. Everest, the world’s tallest peak. He also kayaked the entire 277-miles of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon — among many other feats.

We’ve heard from a lot of Big Dreamers in our audience who continue to struggle with this pandemic, which is becoming more of a concern right now as cases are surging here in the United States and across the globe. I know a lot of kids (and adults) are scared right now, so I decided to reach out to Erik and ask him to share his thoughts on how to stay calm and how to avoid unnecessary panic during these difficult times.

Climbing to the peak of Mt Everest and solo kayaking the Grand Canyon both require you to be in peak physical condition, but more importantly require tremendous mental strength. That fact that Erik accomplished these feats without eyesight is truly remarkable, and I can not think of anyone on the planet more qualified to answer a question about how to stay calm under pressure and push forward when the going gets tough. Not surprisingly, Erik delivered a brilliant answer that we all need to hear right now.
