Featuring life lessons from explorer, endurance athlete, and entrepreneur Colin O’Brady—whose adventures in such extreme places as Antarctica and the perilous Drake Passage and on the peaks of Mount Everest and K2 have seen him establish ten world records—this book’s vivid narrative and powerful insight will show you how you can embark on your own life-changing journey. Here's why you should read The 12-Hour Walk: Invest One Day, Conquer Your Mind, and Unlock Your Best Life. 

Invest one day in yourself

Millions of people dream of living a more fulfilling life, yet many settle for a life of comfortable complacency, allowing excuses and negative thoughts to invade their minds. I don’t have enough time…I don’t have enough money…I’m afraid to fail...I don’t have what it takes—we allow these limiting beliefs to control us. [caption id="attachment_12834" align="aligncenter" width="792"] A breakthrough challenge for anyone. 12 hours, unplugged, by yourself. No training necessary. No cost.[/caption] Colin O’Brady is not one of those people. That's why his book, The 12-Hour Walk, is so inspiring. It's the story of how he turned his life around by embarking on a series of extreme challenges, including becoming the first person to walk across Antarctica solo and unassisted. With Colin as your guide, The 12-Hour Walk asks you to invest one day in yourself. The goal? Conquering your mind and becoming your best self. By walking alone, unplugging, listening to the voice within, and rewriting the limiting beliefs etched into your psyche, you can break free of the patterns holding you back and learn how to cultivate a “Possible Mindset”-an empowered way of thinking that unlocks a life of limitless possibilities. The reward: being the hero of your own destiny.

Learn a lot from this book

This book is clearly a different kind of personal growth book and one that ties into the hot topic of the mind-body connection. It's not just about "thinking positive" but also about taking action and looking at things from different perspectives. And here's what others say about it:

I love books that have great, punchy stories and actionable takeaways for me and my life. This book nails that in spades. Colin is a beast, super charismatic, and great at making big things happen. We can all learn a lot from the wisdom Colin has gathered throughout his mind-blowing adventures.


I sat down and read The 12-Hour Walk in a single sitting. The only other book I’ve read cover to cover is The Alchemist! This book had me amazed and empowered, pondering what I was capable of. His adventure stories are so well written and shared, that I felt like I was living the experiences alongside Colin. And I appreciated the insight and key takeaways that clearly applied to my life. I’m certain that when, not if, but when, I take the 12-Hour Walk I’ll be that much closer to conquering my mind and accomplishing “my Everest”. Thanks for the inspiring read! The stories are great and personal, and this is easy to read, the breezy writing style makes this a fun book. It is great because it can be read just for the stories, which are compelling, or for the self-help, motivational aspect. Overall, highly recommend it - you will not be disappointed.
