“When there's a hll to climb, don't think that wating will make it smaller.”  ~ H. Jackson Brown

Good Morning!

H. Jackson Brown certainly bursts a lot of bubbles with that quote - a few of my own included!  I am unsure why, when something seems difficult, waiting seems to be a good idea.  Somehow we convince ourselves that we will acquire tools or resources that will make the uphill climb easier.  But life rarely works that way.  The perfect time never comes.  Instead, we usually acquire more fear about climbing the hill - and often we choose a different path - even though the climb itself was what we needed.

One thing I have learned to do, first in business, and now in my personal life, is to never put off the climb.  No matter what the hill, take the first step.

The easiest comparison I can give you is the time I climbed Mount St. Helens.  It looked really, really, really, really tall when I was at the base.  But guess what?  After that first step, it looked a tiny bit less tall.  And after my first few steps, I knew I had made the commitment to see the adventure through.  There  was no turning around.  After an hour of steps, its foreboding height dissipated all the more.

Your Turn:  When faced with a mountain or hill in your own life, don't turn around.  Take the first step right away.  By doing so, you make a commitment and, in one simple step, you have already decreased the amount of climb that is in front of you.

Today’s Affirmation:  At the top of some of the hardest climbs in life are the best views.

And as always, don't forget to start your day with a heartfelt: "Something great is going to happen today... I can't wait to see what it is!"

And when ending your day ask yourself: "What is one more thing I can do to make today matter?
