DON’T GET TO THE TOP!!!
Why would I say such a thing? Are we not all striving to reach the top? Is that not what its all about – being successful and knowing you have arrived?!
Mmmm, I’m not so sure now…… Yep, I know..very strange 😉
Let me elaborate a little first with an update about what I have been up to.
On Sunday I went for a walk. Actually quite a looong walk. About 15Km. Part of the Wicklow Way! It was quite arduous and the first 6km or so was ALL up hill.
The journey was hard but worth it, as I re-learnt a valuable lesson.
It is in the climb that we discover ourselves not the destination.
I kept on rounding a corner having thought it was the top only to be greeted by another climb. Each time I thought ‘mmmm how much further? I’m tired! Don’t have much left in the tank!’ … and each time I was surprised because I did. I made it to the top of course knowing that it was my mind that had nearly sabotaged my progress.
Your ability and capabilities can be completely sabotaged by a limiting mindset! You are capable of soooo much more than you realize and it is by pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone that we discover this.
Remember there is No Growth in Comfort!
This is when we most learn, grow and ultimately are rewarded. If and when we reach the top, yes, it is great temporarily but soon familiarity sets in and we get bored again.
We get compliant and settled. The climb keeps us growing – the pushing past our imaginary limits keeps us feeling empowered and truly satisfied.
It is in the journey that we are really ALIVE!
I often use an martial metaphor that very much relates to this … its in my Book ‘The Blackbelt Mastermind’ http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Blackbelt-MasterMind-Ultimate-Fighter/dp/0992892406
“A Black belt is simply…a white belt who never gave up.”
We are always learning and growing, that’s the fun in life, that’s the adventure.
Yes indeed strive for bigger and better. Yes, keep pushing the boundaries and stretching your horizon. Yes, keep reaching for the top…BUT…if you ever think you have got there..go higher again..there is always another level 😉
See you NEAR the top!
Most of all enjoy the journey
