“Every corpse on Mt. Everest was once an extremely motivated person”

"Every corpse on Mt. Everest was once an extremely motivated person” (or “Every corpse on Mt. Everest was once a highly motivated person") is a saying that has been printed on many images. Mount Everest is earth’s highest mountain. The saying means that motivation is not enough—lucky, skill and other factors are also needed.

“Every corpse on Everest was once an extremely motivated person” was posted on Twitter on June 1, 2016. “Every corpse on Everest was once a highly motivated person” was posted on Twitter on June 2, 2016. “Every corpse on Mt. Everest was once a highly motivated individual” was posted on Twitter on June 27, 2016. Authorship of the saying is probably from the images.

Chris Curtis: “Every Corpse on Mt. Everest Was Once an Extremely Motivated Person Too”
Fight Network Staff / March 30, 2017 - 12:05pm
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (March 29th, 2017) — Wilfredo Santiago is brimming with confidence less than 72 hours before challenging Chris Curtis for the CES MMA World Welterweight Title Friday night on AXS TV.

That’s fine, says Curtis, before warning his opponent he should perhaps err on the side of caution.

“I’m glad he’s motivated for this, but, remember, every corpse on Mount Everest was once an extremely motivated person, too,” Curtis said.
