What a great metaphor for living an adventurous, rewarding life! Start with the first step:
A] Choose the mountain you want to climb: don’t pay attention to what other people say, such as “that one’s more beautiful” or “this one’s easier”. You’ll be spending lots of energy and enthusiasm to reach your objective, so you’re the only one responsible and you should be sure of what you’re doing.
Continue until you get to the last step:
L] Tell your story: yes, tell your story! Give your example. Tell everyone that it’s possible, and other people will then have the courage to face their own mountains.
I’m so looking forward to finally reading Paulo Coelho’s book The Alchemist over my holiday break.
