Eight Steps to Getting the most out of life
by Phil Keoghan
At 19, New Zealand-born TV adventurer Phil Keoghan nearly drowned during a dive to a sunken cruise ship. He survived, but the near-miss got him thinking about all the things he wanted to do before he died - and there were so many he began a list, checking off number one straightaway when he returned to the scene of his diving emergency the very same day.
Back on dry land, Phil set about fulfilling his wish list, embarking on a series of adventures ranging from enjoying a five-star meal on the top of an erupting volcano to getting married underwater. He found that while often off-the-wall, quirky and sometimes even downright dangerous, each experience enriched his life in unexpected ways. And he realised he had created a philosophy that he's keen to share with others: it's all about getting the most out of life.
Now Phil wants to help you achieve the experiences you've always hankered after but thought you would never have time for. With easygoing humour, he cuts through the excuses and asks, 'What are you waiting for?' Drawing on Phil's own amazing adventures as well as the stories of ordinary people who have taken up his challenge, NO OPPORTUNITY WASTED is an urgent call to action that will inspire you to:
* face your fear
* 'get lost' - lose yourself in the experience
* test your limits
* take a leap of faith
* rediscover your childhood
* shed your inhibitions
* break new ground, and
* aim for the heart - live out your dream by helping others.
So stop dreaming and get out there and do it - NOW!
