I came across the below quote this week and since then I have been kind of stumped.
I'll share the quote and then tell you why!
“Everybody has their own private Mount Everest they were put on this earth to climb. You may never reach the summit; for that you will be forgiven. But if you don't make at least one serious attempt to get above the snow line, years later you will find yourself lying on your deathbed, and all you will feel is emptiness.”
This is a quote by Hugh MacLeod from his book "Ignore Everybody".
So, what's keeping me up? Thinking about:
What's my Mt. Everest?
Do I know it?
Am I doing enough to climb it?
Will I regret not climbing it ever.
What's stopping me from making the climb?
I know I will never be okay with saying, "Never mind, I never really wanted it anyway"
Will it be too late to make the climb?
Am I thinking enough for myself?
Well, now you know why!.
I think it’s not OK for me never to try to climb it.
Do you have Your Private Mt. Everest? Make the climb.
