Ever climbed a tough hike?
Your pores pour out sweat all the way up.
Your feet ache in ways you never thought possible.
Your muscles want to stop moving.
You contemplate turning around and heading back early for a refreshing, hot shower followed up with a relaxing dinner and time on the couch.
Then you think about reaching the top. The cool breeze. The amazing photographs you can take. The panoramic views of beauty that go on for miles and miles.
You consider how great that moment will feel and you keep on pushing.
Then, you reach the top. All else fades away. That sweat doesn’t feel so gross anymore. Your muscles want to stand with confidence so you can take it all in. You suddenly find yourself in no rush to go back.
That’s what your goals are like. A mountain that you climb one step at a time. It can get ugly. It can get exhausting. It can feel like you will never make it. But if you turn around, give up, and go back to start – deep down you know you will regret it.
So keep on climbing, because reaching the top…achieving that dream…is so worth it. Everything else just fades away and all that matters is you did it. And it feels FANTASTIC.
Your Turn – Name a time accomplishing something made all the hard work worth it. Remember how it felt and trust that you can do the same again.
