What is stopping you in the pursuit of your dreams?
That’s you. Standing in front of the ice. The lake. The mountains. Subconsciously we quickly think of the journey as being impossible. That know matter how much energy we exert, we won’t make it. That this is the end of the journey for us.
And at first glance, anyone would think the same. I mean look at it. The very sight of it makes you want to question your sanity. To be honest, most would just quit there. Just stop.
But we aren’t the stopping kind of people are we? We aren’t going to let obstacles get in our way are we? These are just tests, trials and tribulations to see if we are strong enough.
To see if we have the grit inside of us to carry on. And you and I both know that you do. We have overcome more in our lifetime than many others. Many who have succumbed to the weight of it on their shoulders. We don’t stop. We don’t quit.
We just lean into it and keep going. One foot in front of the other. slowly going across the ice on this cold river of uncertainty. Climbing the mountain not able to see over the top for hours, days, maybe months and sometimes years. We climb towards the inevitable. Only one thing is certain on this trip: Failure and quitting is behind us as we move further and further away.
And why would you want to quit right in the middle? Listen, quitting doesn’t make you a bad person. But it doesn’t make you a better one either. If you are stop trying something because it’s too dangerous, I get it. But if you are stopping just because it makes you uncomfortable……that’s the point! The point is to shed the comfort zone and move to somewhere else unrecognizable.
Time to make the unfamiliar very familiar.
This is your wake up call. Time to climb some mountains.
