What are your “rocks” on your path? Fear? Time? Insecurity? Is it possible to even make it to that top of the mountain in the first place? Fear and doubt is a very powerful thing, especially if you go into your goals with fear and doubt right from the outset. If you go in thinking “I will never accomplish this”, odds are, most likely than not, you won’t. Is it what some call a “self fulfilling prophecy”? Perhaps. Many times it’s much easier to pay attention to those “rocks” that get in our way than keeping your eyes on your goals, whatever they may be. It’s hard to keep your sights high.
It reminded me of how I myself am guilty of many times tripping over those rocks and just…stay there, only to try and get up, only to trip over the same rock again. How sometimes it’s so easy to just let your confidence go down and conform. To tell yourself it’s impossible to reach that top, even if sometimes it’s so close you can almost touch it within your grasp.
It’s difficult, yes, that path to the top of the mountain, to the top of your goals, will always be a rocky path. But be strong. Be persistent. Keep your eyes on the top of that mountain. It’s difficult, but not impossible. That’s it for today, thank you for reading, stay safe everyone, and remember, “always aim up there”.
