Bear Grylls shot to fame in India with his show Man vs Wild, and soon his enigma and valor gained momentum with shows like Born Survivor, Running Wild and The Island. But he is a lot more than a man drinking his urine for survival or devouring uncooked camel meat for "protein".
Here are a few quotes on life, adventure and most essentially FEAR by him.
“You’ve run all your life from this fear and that’s why it’s crippling you now, so we’re going to do something different. We’ll move towards the fear, and it’s going to be painful and uncomfortable and terrifying. But at the end of it you’ll be stronger."
"We’re so limited by our self-belief, our fears and struggles and doubts. But when you can see those doubts for what they are, push them aside a little and keep moving forward, these monkeys that we carry around on our backs, that can be huge, often disappear."
"“When we’re pushed and stripped of everything, have we still got it?”
"The wild is a great leveler and a great healer."
"The TV shows have given us incredible access to the world’s greatest wildernesses. But what that’s taught me is the value of home. That’s the driving force of everything I do, getting back to family."
