The third quarter of the year will soon be here, what have you achieved , what are your plan for the remaining part of the year.
Which ICT and computer skills have you been planning to learn, but not yet able to do so?
What is holding you back, the point is that you can do it, you can achieve your dreams
When asked by the New York Times in 1924 why he wanted to climb
Mount Everest, George Mallory responded:
Because it’s there.
Alex Honnold recently accomplished the greatest feat of rock climbing
in history. He became the first person to “free solo” Yosemite’s iconic
3,000-foot El Capitan wall.
That means no ropes. No safety gear. No net.
That’s not only amazing, it’s seemingly superhuman. Not just the skill,
but the sheer courage.
Achievements like this inspire awe. But really, it’s just like any other goal.
The 31-year-old climber trained rigorously for over a year, and knew
every move up El Capitan cold.
When he made the ascent, he said he felt “energetic and fresh” because
he didn’t have to drag 60 meters of rope behind him. Interestingly, the
thing that made the climb dangerous also made it feel easier.
I have no plans to start rock climbing, especially without a rope. But I see
Alex Honnold as an inspiration to any of us who are in pursuit of our own
Here’s what he had to say about his achievement:
“The whole pursuit of this dream has allowed me to live my best life, that
makes me hopefully the best version of me. Just because I’ve achieved
a dream doesn’t mean that I just give up on the best version of me. I want
to be the guy that trains and stays fit and motivated. Just because you
finish a big route doesn’t mean that you just quit.”
Do you have to risk your life to live your best life? Absolutely not.
But you do have to challenge yourself, you do have passionately pursue
your goals in order to achieve life satisfaction and happiness.
So, what’s your next personal Everest (or El Capitan)?
What do you want to accomplish in pursuit of living your best life?
In other words, what will help you become the best version of you?
Not because someone else expects it. Not because of money, awards,
Just because it’s there.
Keep going, and always remember…
Every minutes Counts!
