one of his many adventures, Chess Edwards embarked on
a forty five day solo trek deep into the remote mountains
and valleys of the Himalayas.
His goal - to reach
one of the seven "Hidden Lands" that
lie far up in the high, snowy reaches of Nepal. Alone and
in a cold hard landscape he repeatedly faced great mental
and physical challenges until faith and persistence led him
successfully into this mysterious region of mountains, monasteries
and snow leopards.
Chess says of his expedition, "I
dedicated myself to the journey and put aside all excuses
to turn away from the hardship. Each challenge, fully met,
gave me the tools and insight that I needed to successfully
meet the next challenge sure to come. By actively facing
the inevitable fear and moving through it, I was rewarded
in ways I could have never imagined. This was a journey that
has changed my life dramatically."
Chess has returned home
now with remarkable stories to tell, important lessons to
offer and rare photographic images to share.

- Embrace The
Moment – When we bring an acute awareness
and gratitude to each and every moment, then we are
empowered to make critical decisions which create success
for ourselves, our organizations and our communities.
- Be An Everyday Hero – The
true heroes in life are not those that scale mountains
or risk death through adventure. True heroes are those
that dedicate themselves fully to their relationships,
their work and their commitment to service.
Heroic Choices in Each & Every Moment - Life
is a long series of choices. We live the realities
created by our choices as do the people and institutions
to whom we are connected. Making heroic choices
in even the most mundane of circumstances makes for
a life full of reward, integrity, satisfaction and
Our greatest rewards will always be found on the other side of our greatest challenges .
