Climb The Mountain

I tried to climb the mountain today. As I inched my way up the path, I felt out
of breath and had to turn back.

I tried to climb the mountain today. But, It was so hot outside, I thought I had
better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.

I tried to climb the mountain today. On my journey, darkness started to fall and
I was full of fear, so I had to return to a safe place.

I was ready to climb the mountain today. But I had so many other things to do,
so instead of climbing the mountain I took care of the much more important
tasks; I washed my car, mowed the grass and watched a movie. Today the mountain
will have to wait.

I was going to climb the mountain today. But as I stared at the mountain in all
its majestic beauty, I knew I had no chance of making it to the top, so I
figured why even begin trying.

I had forgotten about climbing the mountain today, until an old friend came by
and asked what I was up to lately. I told him about all my plans to climb that
mountain someday. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish the task.

He stopped me and said, "I just got back from climbing that mountain. for the
longest time I told myself I was going to try to climb it but never made any
progress."

"I almost let the dream of making it to the top die. I came up with every excuse
of why I could not make it up the mountain, but never once did I give myself a
reason why I could. One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered, I realized
that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream all my dreams would eventually
die."

"The next morning, I started my climb. It was not easy, and at times I wanted to
quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other,
keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge, I kept
walking. When the voices inside my head screamed, STOP, I focused on my goal,
never letting it out of sight. I kept moving forward. I could not quit because I
knew I had come too far to stop now. Time and time again, I reassured myself
that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled mightily to make it to the
top, but I CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN."

"I have to be going," my friend said. "Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more
dreams. By the way what are you going to do tomorrow?"

I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said, "I HAVE A
MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB." -unknown
