"Great things are done when men and mountains meet." William Blake
There's a mountain standing between you and the life you want to live. Maybe it's a mountain of debt. Perhaps it's a mountain of problems. Or even a mountain of disappointment, doubt and despair. Whatever it is, wherever it is, the mountain is big. The mountain is imposing.
And the mountain stands in your way.
You know you need to conquer the mountain. You need to do something to cut it down to size. So you try to go around the mountain. But the mountain is too wide. You try to go over the mountain. But the mountain is too high. The mountain is too steep and rocky. It seems like no matter what you do or what you try, the mountain beats you back time after time. You start thinking, "I can't make it. I can't do it."
After awhile, you stop taking the mountain on. You stop trying to knock the mountain down to size. You just allow the mountain to grow and become more daunting. And the mountain conquers you.
"It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves." Edmund Hillary
The mountain isn't the real problem. That's right; it is NOT the size of the mountain that is holding you back. It's the size of your willpower. It's the size of your faith. It's the size of your commitment that's holding you hostage - and holding you back.
Let's be honest. If you can't see a way around the mountain, if you can't see yourself scaling the mountain, if you can't see yourself conquering the mountain, can't will take over. And the mountain will beat you down. The mountain will beat you back. The mountain will beat you each and every time.
"The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones." William Faulkner
Success in life, regardless of your chosen field of endeavor, revolves around believing you can do it. Not hoping you can, not thinking you can, but believing you can with all of your heart and soul. If you think you can't do it, if you think you're not good enough, if you think you don't have what it takes to reach the summit, you're right, right, right again.
And that's just plain wrong.
Want to win? Want to thrive? Want to conquer the mountains in your life? Do you really? Then you've got to believe you can. You have to believe you will. You have to believe you can blast right through the mountain. Then get busy doing.
If you will simply chip away at the mountain - and keep chipping - you will discover something exciting, something unexpected. And that something is this: that the mountain isn't as tough as you thought. It isn't the impossible giant you once imagined.
By simply chipping away one stone, one pebble, one rock at a time, you will find your 'big' mountain isn't so big after all. And you will reduce the mountain to rubble.
"For every mountain there is a miracle." Robert H. Schuller
Got a mountain of problems? Start chipping away.
Got a mountain of debt? Start chipping away.
Got a mountain of disappointment, doubt and despair? Then start chipping and keep chipping, chipping and chipping some more.
Don't look at the size of your problems. Don't look at the size of your troubles. Don't look at the size of your frustrations or regrets. Instead, look inside. And look at the size of your heart. Deep down you will find all of the power you need. All of the strength you need. All of the grit and determination you'll ever need to move any mountain that gets in your way.
Power Pointer: Get moving. And move a mountain today.
