TTE007: Almost Died on a Mountain, Mentors and Success Strategies with Toto

Torsten is talking about his recent experience of climbing a 4097m peak without enough preparation including food and water. Totally exhausted and tired Cai and Torsten reached the peak after 8.5 hours at 6 PM. Only 2 hours of daylight were left and they had no more food and water. It was a race against time. Was it worth the risk? He challenges the common belief of “never give up”. There is always a point when giving up is in fact the right thing to do.

He also talks about the importance of mentorship, reading books and biographies of highly successful people and his plans (dreams) to build a multi-million dollar business.
