Focus on WHY

A podcast with purpose!

Focus on WHY is all about WHY people do WHAT they do.

People who align their work with their values. 

Are you looking for fulfilment and purpose in your life?

Without a compelling WHY, you may lack clarity or the ability to make informed choices and wise decisions.

Imagine the positive impact you could make if you valued your work and you were valued for your work!

Have a Purpose. Have a Plan. Focus on WHY. 

Dec 21, 2020

Having experienced the two biggest consecutive disasters in Mount Everest’s history including the 2015 Nepal earthquake which trapped him on the mountain for two days, Alex Staniforth failed to reach the summit on both occasions. However at -23 degrees and at 23,000 feet Alex discovered the power of acceptance through adversity and followed another path in life to become a record-breaking adventurer, endurance athlete, international motivational speaker, author and mental health activist.


“It's about thinking, right, what's going on in the moment? What can we do? How can I use my skills to make a difference and to have something that I'm going to be proud of when I look back? So, I think it's just to focus on what you can control however big or small that may be.”

Alex knows a thing or two about overcoming adversity, having experienced the two biggest consecutive disasters in the history of Mount Everest. In July 2017 Alex Staniforth became the fastest person ever to climb all 100 UK county tops to raise awareness of depression and eating disorders, and winning the Pride of Britain Granada Reports Fundraiser of the Year 2017.

Now Alex is committed to inspiring others to achieve their own Everest and not settle for base camp. In 2019, Alex co-founded a charity, Mind Over Mountains, to help others restore mental well-being through outdoor experiences and in August 2020 ran the National Three Peaks - covering 452 miles in 9 days 12 hours.
