Creative Elements: The Mountain
Creative Elements: The Mountain

There is a mountain in front of everyone right now.

It is the thing that we want the most in life. We think about it constantly. We fear it completely.

The fear comes from the risk of failure at something we feel so deeply about in our our hearts.

The fear comes from the risk of failure at something we feel so deeply about in our our hearts.

That mountain is the highest, most treacherous obstacle we’ve ever seen.

Your mountain may be bigger than mine. Mine may be bigger than yours. But the challenge we face to climb it is the same because the fear and danger we feel is the same.

I sometimes think the best way to greet other people would be to say, “Hi my name is [your name] and my mountain is [name your mountain].“

The journey to happiness is not a competition. It is what connects us.

To dream big enough to desire what does not exist in your experience.
To take a step on the path to creating it.
To know when to stop, take a break, and rest.
To know when it is time to get back on the path.

Over.
Under.
Around.
Through.

Everyone’s path to the other side is different. But every time we get to the other side we have the opportunity to elevate not only ourselves but everyone around us. To lend a hand, to give advice, or simply say “Hello” and smile to someone else on the path.

Because we are all on the path towards the mountain.

So hello and good day to you.
