It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.

Sir Edmund Hillary


As a conference speaker some of my colleagues have climbed Mount Everest. I have begun to see their journey as a metaphor for us all. If Everest was a walk-in-the-park no one would bother. It’s because it’s such an awe-inspiring challenge that people do it. The same goes for any great big, hair-raising goal. There will be hardships and obstacles. At times you will wonder if it’s worth it. Let this keep you going: The size of the accomplishment increases in direct proportion to the size of the challenge. If it is a great goal, expect great adversity and when obstacles arise, embrace them! This is the test of your mettle. Every ‘no’, every rejection, every setback along the way is part of your Mount Everest. Keep the summit firmly in your vision. Know that what you get by achieving your goal is less than what you get by following through come wind, snow or sleet.
