Why You Need A Mountain

To grow, we need a mountain to climb.
We need something bigger than us.
We need something greater than us.
If not, we are not going to reach our 
highest potential. We are going to be where we are.

Without a mountain to climb, there can be no growth.
But for it to make sense, it has to be your own mountain.
It has to be something that you really want to do.
It has to be something that is keeping you up at night.
It has to be your dream. It has to be what you are passionate about.
If it is not what you are passionate about, stay away from it.

Because no one can force you to climb a mountain.
Because no one can force you to do what you do not
want to do, not even yourself. 
Because you are in charge of your life.
Because you are a unique human being.

For that reason, whatever you are doing,
If you do not love it, do not do it.
If you do not love it, stay away from it.
If you do not love it, find something better.

It is important to love what you do.
Because the beginning of everything 
Is always lonely. It is always difficult.
It is always challenging. Why is that?
Because it is just the beginning.
Because you are a novice.
Because you haven't done it before.
It is your first time of trying it.
Because nobody cares about it.
Because nobody believes in it. 

But if you have the courage to 
finish what you start, no matter what,
Success is yours. 
Success is when you didn't give up.
And to win, you must believe in yourself.
Because when you believe in yourself,
That is success. That is getting to the top.
And that is why you need a mountain.
