Lyric:- There's always gonna be another mountain, I'm always gonna wanna make it move, always gonna be an uphill battle, sometimes I'm gonna have to lose, ain't about how fast I get there, ain't about what's waitin' on the other side...It's the climb' - Cyrus
Song Choice:- Now I'm not the biggest Miley fan but the lyrics of this song were sent to me today by one of my clients. She told me that it's a mantra she's chanted many a time when things have gotten tough and I thought I'd share it with you...and funnily enough with her again and my take on the tune!
The thing is though, that sometimes there isn't another mountain and sometimes you don't have to lose...I agree with Ms Cyrus that 'The Climb' is the part of the struggle that ignites the passion within BUT why accept failure as part of the journey. It's such a negative emotion and gives corrosion it's opportunity to work it's evil magic on your soul.
What makes matters worse is an outside force (people, partners, work commitments) stopping you scaling new heights and sometimes those 'Sliding Door Moments' can be the making of you.
My mantra is life is far too short. I ran 42.2km on a gloomy Welsh November Day and it was blooming marvellous and another few steps up my 1000 Marathon Mountain,
I'm climbing Folks, are you?
