“The difference between ordinary and extra-ordinary is so often just simply that little word – extra. And for me, I had always grown up with the belief that if someone succeeds it is because they are brilliant or talented or just better than me… and the more of these words I heard the smaller I always felt! But the truth is often very different… and for me to learn that ordinary me can achieve something extra-ordinary by giving that little bit extra, when everyone else gives up, meant the world to me and I really clung to it…”
― Bear Grylls

 “Never depend on those luck moments – they are gifts – but instead always build your own back-up plan.”

“There is little faith involved in setting out on a journey where the destination is certain and every step in between has been mapped in detail. Bravery, trust, is about leaving camp in the dark, when we do not know the route ahead and cannot be certain we will ever return.”
― Bear Grylls,  A Survival Guide for Life

“Time and experience have taught me that fame and money very rarely go to the worthy, by the way – hence we shouldn’t ever be too impressed by either of those impostors. Value folk for who they are, how they live and what they give – that’s a much better benchmark.”

“To me, my Christian faith is all about being held, comforted, forgiven, strengthened, and loved–yet somehow that message gets lost on most of us, and we tend only to remember the religious nutters or the God of endless school assemblies. This is no one’s fault, it is just life. Our job is to stay open and gentle, so we can hear the knocking on the door of our heart when it comes. The irony is that I never meet anyone who doesn’t want to be loved or held or forgiven. Yet I meet a lot of folk who hate religion. And I so sympathize. But so did Jesus. In fact, He didn’t just sympathize, He went much further. It seems more like this Jesus came to destroy religion and to bring life.”

One Final Bonus – Longer – Bear Grylls Quote 

“I mean, in the last few months alone, I’ve been pinned in a big set of white-water rapids, been bitten by an angry snake in a jungle, had a close escapewith a big mountain rockfall, narrowly avoided being eaten by a huge croc in the Australian swamps, and had to cut away from my main parachute and come down on my reserve, some five thousand feet above the Arctic plateau.

When did all this craziness become my world?

It’s as if – almost accidentally – this madness had become my life. And don’t get me wrong – I love it all.

The game, though, now, is to hang on to that life.

Every day is the most wonderful of blessings, and a gift that I never, ever take for granted.

Oh, and as for the scars, broken bones, aching limbs and sore back?

I consider them just gentle reminders that life is precious – and that maybe, just maybe, I am more fragile than I dare to admit.”

― Bear Grylls
