Mental Toughness for Leaders: The Transcript

Leaders in the trenches and your host today is Gene Hammett

Colin O’Brady: 2016 when I climbed the tallest mountain on each of the seven continents, so Mt. Everest, Kilimanjaro, et Cetera, as well as going to the north and South Pole, which is known as the explorer’s grand slam faster than anyone has ever done that. But a bit of a crazy backstory that kind of got me into all this.

Gene Hammett: Well, I saw you speak at the spanx event the other day or Jessie’s event and it spanx headquarters and you really connected with me on the story. So I want the audience to understand even though you spent what, 45 minutes or an hour telling the story. It was a long time ago where you left for a world trip and something horrific happened. Right?

Colin O’Brady: Yeah. You know, this kind of obviously, you know, ends and triumph with some world records on top of the biggest mountains in the world, but really begins and I’m pretty opposite place, which is. Yeah. Just after graduating from college decided to kind of take my personal life savings and a backpack and a surfboard and decided to go, you know, kind of spread my wings and see the world. Not Glamorous at all, just staying in youth hostels, hitchhiking around the world and whatnot, but you know, got to see a big slice of the world as a young person. But fortunately in about halfway through that trip, I found myself on a beach in rural Thailand and was severely burned in a fire and ended up having to jump in the ocean to extinguish the flame that ultimately saved my life. But not before it’s 25 percent of my body was severely burned.

Colin O’Brady: Primary my legs and feet and the doctors in this tiny little one room shack of a tide hospital where there’s a cat running around my bed and across my chest in the ICU were saying to me, hey, look, call and you’ll probably never walk again normally. And so that was an incredibly traumatic time in my life. You know, kind of on the precipice of adulthood to be told, hey, your life is completely different. You’re going to be handicap forever and um, you know, fortunately, again, I’ll tell very brief retelling of this, but you know, fortunately the hero of this story is my mother really who came to my bedside and Thailand and said, you know what, your life’s not over. And kind of filled me with that positivity. Know my mind was just my mind and body. We’re just going through so much trauma. And she was like, we’re going to get you out of this.

Colin O’Brady: You’re going to have a full life. What do you want to do when you get out of here? Let’s set a goal. Let’s start working towards something. And I said to her kind of, you know, being a precocious kid in China say like, fine, I want to raise a triathlon one day. I’m thinking she’s going to say no, no. I said, a more realistical you’re in a wheelchair, whatever. And she was like, great, that’s your goal. And so fast forward, you know, basically 18 months of learning how to walk again and my mother’s kitchen one step at a time. Eventually kind of, you know, walk around the block and jog and I did honor that goal by signing up for the Chicago triathlon after becoming a commodities trader out there about 18 months after I had been told I would never walk again and racing the Chicago triathlon, which to my complete surprise, I didn’t just win the race, but I actually, sorry I finished the race.
