Climbing Mount Everest

The top can look pretty intimidating when you’re at the bottom. Just thinking about going up has your stomach in a knot, because you do not want to fall……again! Do you climb up or not, is the question you keep asking, because the last time you did, you regretted it. However, the only thing you’d regret is not going after what you want, because you allowed fear to convince you to come down! Dammit! Just when you thought “this is it”, turns out “it” was not enough to send you up! We all have been scared at some point or another in our lives. We’ve gone over the “what ifs” time and time again, and rather than try to succeed, we simply fail to start. But, one day, you’re going to muster up enough courage and strength to reach your peak, and when you do, you’ll look down and be glad that you did!

What’s your “Mount Everest”, and why are you so afraid to climb?

Until next time my NOTE takers!

Brave beyond measure

You’re walking, but they’re running in pursuit of you, while you pursue something far greater. The chase has ensued for quite some time, and although you’ve been going at it for what seems like forever, you never stop walking. Instead, you pick up the pace. Even though they’re on your heels, you want to run for fear of being caught, but you don’t, because in your mind, fear cease to exist. However, your freedom does. So, you continue trodding along, weathering storms and countless other acts of terror. You know what you’re after will change your life, so you don’t mind suffering to get what you want. I don’t know how many people would do as you did, but as a result of you being brave beyond measure, you not only changed your life, but the world!

Thank you, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.!
