You Were Assigned This Mountain To Show Others It Can Be Moved

You have all you need to overcome obstacles.


It’s Time To Start Climbing

I saw an anonymous meme on Facebook last week that said, “You were assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved.”

So powerful. Everyone has a mountain and we all have the ability to move them. But sometimes standing at the bottom and staring up at a peak we can’t even see is beyond daunting.

The best thing to do is start climbing. But what’s stopping us?

Muhammad Ali once said, “It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out, it’s the pebble in your shoe.”

You think the timing is wrong, or you’re not prepared. You think you have to read more or learn more or meet the right people.

The thing is you have all you need. It’s inside you. You don’t need all the answers. You don’t need to know all the questions. You need to move up the mountain. And you need to start today.

Friedrich Nietzsche said, “On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow.”

He also said, “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”

So look up at that peak and start your climb. It’s time to move some mountains.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
