Climb Your Mountain - Get Rid of the Boulders

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”—George Bernard Shaw

Fighting against change with outdated thoughts, beliefs and actions is a no-win situation. And sad to say failure to transcend from good to great is often accompanied with unrelenting stubbornness to change. Unfortunately a majority of people would rather be right than be open to possibilities that change offers. Resisting change is one of the few reasons there are so few at the top and the bottom is crowded.

When you stick close to the familiar, reacting rather than being proactive to change, and seeking solutions with the same old methods and mindset you have the ingredients for burnout, discouragement, and stress. These ingredients are like trying to go up the mountain with a boulder. The boulder is a handicap and the climber insisting on taking the boulder along because in the past the boulder served a good purpose.

How many boulders are you carrying around preventing you from reaching new horizons? William Blake (1757-1827), artist, mystic and poet said that “The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water and breeds reptiles of the mind.”

Upcoming in the next blog are other boulders that can get in your way, plus tips on how to get to the top of your mountain minus boulders holding you back.

You are the possibility of the change you desire.
