Higher aims are in themselves more valuable, even if unfulfilled than lower ones quite attained. – Goethe
I had the pleasure of hearing Erik Weihenmayer, the first blind person to reach the summit of Mount Everest, tell his story a few weeks ago. He shared some incredible footage from the climb. One-piece of footage was him and team crossing between two mountain tops on a ladder. It was probably thirty feet or so across. He joked that one of the benefits of being blind was that he could not look down, as if he did, he might have stopped. Looking down startled many of the folks making their way across those mountain tops.
Aim high, stay above the fray, make your way across your mountain tops and don’t look down … there is nothing down there for you.
