It’s been said that Edmond Hillary, the man who first scaled Mount Everest, after having made several prior unsuccessful attempts, turned to the mountain and proclaimed “I will conquer you! Why? Because you are not getting any bigger but I am!”.
What a great way to approach a goal! Hillary understood that even something as difficult as Mount Everest was achievable because the goal wasn’t getting any bigger, but he was.
Often a dream can seem unattainable because it’s so far removed from our current reality. The goal is way up there, but we’re still way down here. But little by little, with patience and perseverance, even scaling Mt. Everest is achievable because we have the capacity to keep growing, learning, and improving.
