Scott Dinsmore RIP

I just received the sad news that the well known passion coach and blogger Scott Dinsmore passed away during a hiking adventure up Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania this past weekend.

Scott and I had talked a year ago about getting him on the Addicted2Success podcast but it never came about because of both of our busy travelling and business schedules. Scott was only 32 years young and this came as a surprise to everyone. This shows how precious life really is.

Scott impacted more lives than most for his age and really did leave this world Living His Legend.

Scott has transformed thousands of lives with his Live Your Legend movement, inspiring so many people around the world to follow their heart and step into their greatness.

Scott built an amazing philosophy that the world would be a beautiful place if we all did work that actually mattered to us.

Here’s Scott Dinsmore’s TED Talk that has nearly reached 3 Million Views. What an achievement for someone who passed with so much more to give this world.

  1. I’ve only recently read about Scott and the influence his had and wow what an inspiration his been, truly living his legend and encouraging others to follow in his footsteps.
    May he rest in peace

  2. This is a lovely tribute to Scott. I never met him, but he impacted my life greatly and was in large part, the motivation for starting my own blog. I still can’t believe he is gone. It is incredibly sad.

    He was an inspiration to so many people. I know we will all miss him.

  3. He wrote his last public post on September 4, 2015. He wrote about almost canceling the trip for “fear” of being off grid. He definitely Lived his Legend. Prayers to his wife and family.

    I just noticed something kinda scary – despite this year’s amazing world tour and lots of other exploring we’ve done over the years, I realized I have been connected to the Internet nearly every single day since the day I got home from my honeymoon five years ago.
    I don’t think that’s healthy. Most the magic happens during The Pause, so starting next week I’m taking some time away from the tech as Chelsea and I head to Tanzania to attempt to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, track the Great Wildebeest Migration and do some volunteer work at a local school. I’m more than a little nervous about it and almost canceled the trip out of fear of being “off” (sad, I know).
    Anyway, this is the topic of today’s article on Live Your Legend. I hope it’s helpful in reclaiming your own pause…

  4. I went to high school with Scott and just read the news on Facebook.
    Such a tragedy – as I think his fear was great in hiking Kilimanjaro.
    I feel terrible for his family and friends.

    Thank you for remembering him.

    As a correction to his age – he was 32.

  5. Knowing Scott literally changed my life. He was a true leader, and the most genuine of human beings I have ever met. When I think about legacy as something you leave, to me the legacy Scott leaves is one of generosity – to view every human being as your friend, just one you may not have met yet – to view every obstacle as an opportunity – to live life to the fullest – to make an impact. Scott, we love you and you’ve made a dent in all of our souls. Your legacy will live on forever.

  6. What a great loss Joel,
    I’ve never heard about Scott before now but i can really feel how energetic he was on inspiring people during his life time.

    Its indeed always painful to loose such a legend but what can we say? It has already happened and the main thing is that he lived a very good life that is worthy of emulation. At least, many people will forever remember him.

    May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace…… Amen.
