If you discuss the struggles in life, do you agree 'it's about the climb'?
Is it, after all, the climb that matters not all of the 'stuff' we face as we struggle to make our way in the world.? The song 'It's the Climb" (and regardless of your feelings about the singer) addresses this topic? Share your views on this topic if you will?
While the climb is important and we always learn many valuable lessons on the way, I feel that the destination is equally as important. The goal we set for ourselves was the single reason for the climb. Isn't this so? No goal, no climb.
I think the peaks and valleys are just as important as your arrival to the top of the mountain. As we deal with life's struggles, disappointments and setbacks - I believe that our character is built even stronger and we realize how to reassess in order to move forward in order to accomplishment our goals. "The Climb" is important but our resilient nature to make it through the tough times is just as important.
It is most definitely about the climb otherwise you'd never appreciate your destination for what it's truly worth. I am the happiest I've ever been in my personal life. It took hitting several lows in order for that to happen. As a result, I've grown to appreciate and love to the fullest of my capacity. The destination may be amazing, but never fully appreciated unless there were mountains to overcome to get there first.
