Making the Climb

Whatever field of life you're in and whatever point on the journey you find yourself on, the key is to keep climbing, however slow the progress seems.
If you are at the bottom of the rock face and looking up, find someone who will support your desire to climb. As you begin, do not allow the voices of those still at the bottom to persuade you to come back down. They can tell you nothing about a climb they've never made.

Bricks, Ants and Excuses

We can either find a way or find an excuse. For a long time, I used every excuse I could think of to avoid public speaking or communicating with others. I don’t want the end of my life to be filled with excuses as to why I didn’t do things. We do not have control over what happens; what we do have control over is how we respond.
