We all need a little nudge in order for us to finally do whatever it is we want to do. Sometimes we want actual testimonials from people we know personally, we want to see first that what we want to do is possible, or we want something to just ignite that fire. In this article, we will be talking about an inspirational piece that discusses life and how almost everything that can happen in yours is up to you.
Akyat Book: A Filipino’s Journey to the Seven Summits by Romi Garduce
For those who don’t know what ‘akyat’ means, it’s the Filipino translation for the word ‘climb’. This book is written by Romi Garduce, a mountaineer, scuba diving master, environmentalist, a former TV host, and a full time project manager. If you read it and you imagine that you’re in his place, it could seem like a handful of things where you may ask, “how did you find the time to do all those?”.
Why read it?
A lot of people put off their hobbies, interests, and everything in between because they get caught up in their jobs, overwhelmed by the amount of things they’ll miss, or because they think they don’t have enough time to do such things. In this book, Garduce talks about his journey to the seven summits and we’re sure that he can help those who have been putting off the things they want to do because of the things that they have to do. We believe that if people read this, they will be inspired to start living the lives they have.
You don’t have to want to climb a mountain, or see the seven summits for you to enjoy this book and pick something up from it. Whatever your passions are, or whatever it is that you want to do but have been putting off, this book can inspire you to get up and start living, because otherwise, you may regret it when you really can’t do it anymore.
