Reaching Your Goals: Thoughts From 14,000 Feet

Leading yourself is part of being able to lead others.  When you show you are capable of reaching your goals, you demonstrate the potential to help others do the same.

In this short video we look at the similarities between mountain climbing and reaching your goals, and motivate you with a few simple steps you can take to mentally prepare to achieve the goals you set for yourself.  Footage for the video was taken on a 14,000′ peak in central Colorado  Good luck, and enjoy.




It starts with a goal.
Set it high; dream big…
That’s the mountain to climb.

Plan a route…
A way to get there…
With smaller goals along the way.

Then get to work…
Take a step…and another.
Put in the effort every day.

Sometimes you go up…
Sometimes you go down…
But keep moving.

You may have to climb…
Through the forest…
Stumble through the dark…
Navigate through boulder fields.

But keep sight of your goal…
Put in the effort every day…
And you can get there.

And when you reach the summit…
You will see…
How very far you have come…
And the amazing things…
You are capable of.

It starts with a dream…
And the commitment to act…
