There are metaphors for the journey I am on--we are all on-- everywhere. Encouragement can be found when we least expect it.
Anthony Robbins posted a link on Twitter to this video of Ueli Steck-- a world record speed climber-- climbing a massive mountain. The second the video came on I saw myself. This is not to say that I am now, or ever will be, capable of climbing a mountain!
What I am saying is that in life we face many mountains. With courage, determination, and faith in ourselves we can make it to the top of the mountain no matter how steep or slippery the climb!
