It is up to you and only you to choose how to climb and how to live.
Your unique path in life is what I call North. It’s found around the coordinates of where your happiness, purpose and priorities align.
If it feels right to open your own trail, blaze away! Build the courage to stay strong when seeing others doing it easier on the already paved path. If it’s not your path, no matter how easy it is, it will never take you to where you want to go. If the normal route is your way, there is plenty of space to make it your own! Ignore the distractions of people doing it differently, as only you know when to move, when to rest, and what feels good at each moment in time. Enjoy the climb (and life)!
When every detail is meticulously plotted out, the expedition begins.
But for all the research and tedious planning – it never, ever goes exactly as planned.
Storms roll in. Altitude sickness hits. Fatigue slows us down.
When we are in the day-to-day of the expedition, we need to make on-the-spot decisions based on the real-life scenarios that arise. Those scenarios often come with circumstances and feelings that can cloud our perspective. The clarity we gained while planning helps us navigate the unplanned situations .
Sometimes the days look different than anticipated but each night we still arrive to set up tent at the place we said was going to be camp. Other times, bigger issues develop and we need to camp unexpectedly or stay put various days waiting for the skies to clear.
It is only when we know where we are going and how to get there that we can intentionally make the smaller, game-time decisions that make or break our success.
