It is important to encounter mountains, in life. It is also important to always remember that no mountain is impregnable.
I speak out of the deepest abyss of my soul, to you, who surely has a mountain standing right in front of you right now. Towering mightily, and clouding you in its shadow.
Do not give in.
If it weren’t for mountains, you wouldn’t be the man or woman you are today. Because this surely isn’t the first mountain you’ve encountered, and it surely won’t be the last. How many mountains have you climbed and conquered already? No matter how high and how threatening they promised to be, you climbed them in the end.
And for that you’re here, in front of another mountain. Why are you afraid? What makes you believe you cannot conquer this one too? Isn’t that also what all the previous mountains promised to do: squash you. Did they?
Believe in yourself. It is crucial to do so. You already do, or else you wouldn’t be here facing another mountain. You were right back then, while every mountain was wrong. That’s why you made it here. Believe in yourself and don’t hate the mountain. It, and all the others before it, have made you who you are today.
This doesn’t mean it will be easy. Sometimes it is, sometimes it is not. Every mountain differs, but none is original. It will always be the same: you against the mountain – that at least you know for certain.
So stand, proud and tall. And face it. Believe in yourself. Believe in whatever else you want. Belief is such a strong thing, and it can help you more than you think. It already has, and it will always do.
And one more thing…
Just like there are so many mountains, there are also so many men and women like you (over 6 Billion). So…
You’re not alone
