ADVENTURER Pat Falvey believes everyone has their own Everest and, at a Southern Star Events presentation in the West Cork Hotel last week, he showed people how to go about achieving it.
Pat Falvey was a teenager when he left school ‘to become a millionaire’. But life brought boom and bust and a failed suicide attempt.
It was on the top of Carrauntoohil he had his ‘a-ha’ moment and it was from Buddhist monks – during his trips to climb Everest – that he learned his job in life is to be his ‘best self’, and to serve others.
Pat Falvey does that in lots of ways: he helps people ‘realise their Everest’, and he is engaged in charitable giving.
Pat told The Southern Star on the night that he has also recently set up a free organisation for the over 50s called the Forever Young Club.
‘Life is not a rehearsal, it’s a performance – live it!’ is its tagline. For more see patfalvey.com
