Ernest Shackleton changed the course of history and many people's lives when he led the Endurance expedition.
In our everyday lives, we can do the same.
Mike's life changed in August 2001, when a random visit to a bookstore changed everything. On the shelf, he saw this book, Shackleton's Way. Curious, he picked it up and spent 10 minutes thumbing through it. Little did he know that this would lead to reading 100+ books on the subject, two trips to Antarctica in 2006, and a career as a storyteller.
Ernest Shackleton: The Greatest Leader Or Biggest Failure?
In 1914, Ernest Shackleton led 27 people into Antarctica, only to get stuck and stranded for 2 years, and in the end, everyone came home alive. Arguably, the greatest story in recorded human history. On the other hand, Shackleton failed to reach his goal on 4 trips into Antarctica, yet everyone made it home alive, so was he the greatest leader or biggest failure?
I'll let you decide.
