We all have our own mountains to climb. You either choose to climb it or give up.
If you choose to give it a try, you are letting go of the fears and reservations you have. It’s an attempt to stretch yourself beyond what you think you can.
You challenge your fears and doubts.
You challenge your beliefs.
You challenge your mindset.
You challenge what you know or what you thought you know.
You challenge the way you do things.
You challenge the way you think.
You challenge your discipline.
You will not be the same person again.
When you conquered something you first thought was unconquerable, you get a great sense of satisfaction. Not only that, you grow yourself and you believe more in yourself.
As you continue to conquer more and more mountains, the next ones would be more of a challenging adventure than it is an obstacle.
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.”
– JK Rowling
“You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.”
– Dale Carnegie
