You long to get to the top but you’re afraid of the climb. Sometimes even with the manual, the instructor, the prep, and the gear, we’re still terrified of making the first step.
We’re terrified because, believe it or not, we sense that if we can just take that first step, we can make another and another. Before long we would’ve gone way past what we originally thought was our comfort zone and THAT… is scary!
So then why do we set big goals? I think it’s because as much as fear holds us back it propels us too! Why? Fear always seems to come with a hefty serving of curiosity.
What if we could get to the top? What then? Maybe we should start climbing and see.
