Climbing The Mountain
Write Down Your Goals Today
Folks, it’s quiz time!
If two people are trying to climb a mountain together, what’s the most important thing they need to get to the top? Is it equipment? Or training? Or teamwork? Or favorable weather conditions?
Well, they need all of these for sure. But the most important thing is the mountain itself. They need a clear goal!
Too often, we get obsessed with the equipment and the training but have no clear goals. The best mountain-climbing equipment is of little use if you don’t have a mountain to climb.
We are all very fortunate. We have the most fabulous equipment there is. We have access to training. And there are colleagues out there, waiting to help us succeed. But we need to have our own mountains. Our own goals.
And once you have your own mountain to climb, everything changes. Magically. You get a sense of purpose. You begin to want to climb that peak. You become disciplined. You get up early, you brave the cold, you watch your diet, you seek out experts, you read the books … All because you now have a mountain to climb. A peak to conquer.
So instead of complaining about your equipment or your training, and worrying about buying more sophisticated equipment, set your own goals first.
Find your own mountain. That could be the first step towards transforming your whole life.
Go ahead. Write down your goals. Today.
Get your own mountain. And take the first step towards feeling on top of the world.
