Start Climbing Your Mountain

Tuesday, January 1, 2019

My 7 year old son wrote on a piece of paper "Start climbing your mountain". I don't know where he got the phrase but that piece of paper sat on my desk for a number of days, and I was challenged by it.

We all have personal or organisational mountains that we face, but the only way to overcome the mountain is to start climbing it. Looking at it, talking about it, creating strategies and plans, having meetings about it will only have limited benefit, because at some point you actually have to start climbing the mountain.

As a self-confessed procrastinator, I can be an expert at looking at all of the options but never taking action, and so year after year the same ideas and projects surface, and year after year they are discussed and reviewed, but rarely acted on.

So my challenge to myself and to you, is to start climbing your mountain.
Find one area of your life that has a mountain, and don't just look, discuss and plan, but take action.

Some areas to start you thinking:

  • Relationships & Family
  • Finances
  • Health & Fitness
  • Business
  • Personal development
  • Ministry & Leadership
  • Spiritual

I would love to know what mountain you are starting to climb. I would love to pray for you and if I have any resources or connections to help you on your journey then I will happily share it with you.
