Summits of Self

The Seven Peaks of Personal Growth

Alan Mallory

Your own personal Everest is waiting for you to climb it.

We all have mountains to climb. Some we climb by choice; others rise before us without warning. All require skill, preparation, and determination to conquer. In this guide, speaker, author, performance coach, and mountain climber Alan Mallory—whose family was the first to scale Mount Everest together—draws on his personal and professional experiences to lead you through seven summits that will lead to stronger mental health, resilience, and fulfilment. With practical steps and actionable ideas for scaling new heights, you’ll learn to shed your perceived limitations, and gain the confidence to find new footholds in your professional and personal climb.

As you scale the summits of self-knowledge, self-motivation, self-balance, self-regulation, self-respect, self-resilience, and self-actualization, you’ll not only gain the skills to soar higher than before—you’ll also gain a better sense of who you are and what drives you. Along the way, you’ll learn to carve a path toward a kinder, healthier, and more productive relationship with yourself and the world around you.
