Why Setting Yourself Ambitious Goals Is Absolutely Worth It

“Tall mountains may be harder to climb, but the view from the top is always worth it” ~Viginia Andrews

It can be hard and discouraging not to be able to see where you are going.

It can be incredibly frustrating to find yourself going downhill when you know your goal is somewhere higher up.

It can be mind-numbingly challenging to keep putting one foot in front of the other when you find yourself standing at the foot of yet another steep climb.

It can be almost impossible to not give in to the desire to just give up and sit down when you’re so tired you can no longer see straight.

But when you keep on going….

When you keep putting one foot in front of the other….

When you keep pushing on along the path you’ve chosen….

When you keep climbing in spite of it all….

There will come a time when you reach the top and find the view was totally worth all of it

And everything you had to go through to get there will be nothing but a memory, fading into the background.

Believe me I’ve been there!

I’ve struggled my way up to both virtual and real mountains and some of those climbs were incredibly hard.

But the views were totally worth it. I wouldn’t have missed them for anything in the world!

How about you? What do your mountains look like? Which challenges are you facing or have you set yourself?
