About Saahil

The story of an entrepreneur, coach, and passionate mountaineer.


My Mantra

"They did not know it was impossible, so they did it."

This has been my mantra which pushes me beyond my mental limits to truly understand what I am capable of.

It started back in 2002. I had successfully completed the London Marathon. Although I hated running, I saw it as a challenge and wanted to push myself physically. In fact, I trained so hard that I stretched the ligaments in both my feet due to the aggressive training regime, and was even advised against the race by my physiotherapist. In the end we settled for ‘if it starts to hurt bad, stop’…luckily for me that did not happen.

I didn’t realise at the time, but the long period of time alone allowed me to start my journey within. This eventually inspired me to scale my first mountain in 2010…

The Day I Stopped Making Excuses And

I caught the mountain bug

For some reason or the other however, life took over and it wasn’t until the end of that year, did I stop making excuses and took off on my next adventure which was getting to the top of Kala Patthar (5,644m) in the Himalayas which was a little higher than the base camp of Mount Everest. I got the mountain bug after which my wife and I decided that we would climb again as soon as our kids reached a certain age.

Fast forward to 2017, I summited the tallest free standing mountain in the world and the highest peak in Africa at 5,895m – Mount Kilimanjaro.


The Thrill of the Climb And

A change in thinking

This was followed by summiting the tallest peak in Europe at 5,642m in 2018 – Mount Elbrus. This also gave our first taste of technical climbing which involved harnesses and ropes.

After completing two of the seven summits, in 2019 we successfully summited Mount Chopicalqui at 6,354m in Peru. This was our first summit over 6,000m which was also our first experience with ice axes. While in Peru, we also visited the Amazon rain forest where I witnessed the circle of life in perfect harmony. Everything dead or alive had a purpose.

The Mountains Continue to Give Me

New peaks to climb, new lessons to learn

My most recent trip to climbing the highest peak in Mexico continued to remind me that working towards your personal dreams and goals is one of the most fulfilling expressions of human happiness.

I continue to learn new things about myself: from my endurance, to how to prepare for challenges, weathering hardships, self-confidence, mindfulness, and going where others fear – and bring these lessons from the summit into my business, everyday life, and most importantly, to YOU!

All the above proved to me that I had no idea what my limitations were.

This has given me the ability to change my way of thinking from ‘Why?’ to ‘Why Not?’ What is the next adventure that awaits you?

About Story 5 Saahil Mehta v2

The same philosophy allowed me to start living life on my own terms.

Today, I continue running my business ventures on the one hand as I fulfil my life’s mission as an author and a coach. I am deeply focused on guiding thoughtful leaders to navigate their health, wealth, and relationships as they scale their summits of success with the help of my proven set of tools and rituals.

I want everyone to experience ultimate peace and freedom and to redefine what personal success means to them. Many have asked me, “why do this at all?” My answer is, “I feel ethereal joy when I help someone ignite the compassion, creativity, and connection that births clarity for perceiving and pursuing their WHAT NEXT.”

Even though I lead my life with absolute “ahimsa” (the art of non-violence) and evangelise this virtue for all human beings, when it comes to personal mastery and performance I love to destroy my limits and consistently conquer myself. With my debut book Break Free, I share my personal journey of how I transcended all odds to scale the summits of my dreams, and how you too, can dream up new personal summits every day, once you have mastered the art of decluttering life.

“Profound. Eye-opening. Great insights and learnings from Saahil's experiences of mountaineering as well!”
