  Gary Guller: Using His story to Inspire Others


After leading a group of people with disabilities to the base camp of Mt. Everest, Gary Guller summited Mt. Everest on May 23, 2003, becoming the only person with one arm to ever scale the world’s highest peak. This accomplishment alone speaks of his integrity, perseverance and ability to motivate and inspire those around him to accomplish their dreams and to reach their full potential.  

Since that day Gary has made it his goal to inspire others with his story.   From large companies like IBM, Toyota, American Express, Freightliner,  to groups that have a goal to encourage people with disabilities like AIM Independent Living Center, POTA - Pennsylvania Occupational Therapists Association, Lone Star Paralysis Foundation, Inclusion Works Training Consortium, AIM Independent Living Center and The Arc of Jacksonville. 

Gary grew up in the Southeastern United States and has spent much of his life climbing and exploring the world, including over 35 trips to the Himalayas. He is active in his local community and is known throughout the world for his passion for exploration.

Gary lost the use of his arm in a mountaineering accident just as he had found his life's passion: alpine climbing. He stunned a medical team at Duke University by asking to have his paralyzed arm amputated. After serious introspection, Gary began climbing again, surmounting the barriers that stood in the way of realizing his dreams to explore. He has inspired others ever since to continue onward and upward.

His down-to-earth speaking style reaches into the souls of his audience as he tells how his experiences have shaped his philosophy of “Anything is Possible”. He encourages others to look deep into themselves, motivating them to set goals to maximize their potential, placing fear and doubts aside and pushing through the barriers to success in business and in life.

His images, stories and affable nature inspire others to look deep within to accomplish more in all areas of life. Gary speaks from his heart about what he has learned over the past 20 years of adventures. He has certainly earned the right. From an early age, Gary has inspired countless people to achieve their maximum potential and to pursue their dreams and goals. He has challenged both children and adults to reach beyond what they perceive as their limitations and to succeed.

I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to personally meet you.  Not to mention the fact that I was able to see, listen, and hear all about your very important true story.  What an inspiration of unbelievable human determination, perseverance, with the glue holding the group together being that of unconditional caring and kindness to one another. 

You and your colleagues who helped form that amazing expedition team are truly an inspiration to all.  Most definitely your message is what each and everyone of us should be striving to achieve on a daily basis in our lives.  I, for one, am a very firm believer in what you send out into this world will eventually come back...  Thanks again for sharing your courageous story and for the gentle reminder that we're all in this together.    Freightliner
