Extreme endurance athlete & motivational speaker, Bill Bradley says, "Listen to the story of how I attempted to climb Mt. Denali for the second time and failed to make it to the summit.  Failing to accomplish something you've worked extremely hard for can be devastating, but I want to share with you the lessons I learned in my experience."
