Breaking the Silence
It is time. I have some big news and I'm gagging to tell you about it.
I have not hounded you with emails, newsletters or actually any communication for a while now (ok, I don’t want to admit how long it has been). I guess I got tired of being hounded and got crystal clear that blogs are best when there is something useful to say.
So.. What's up?
I have started 2010 with a fierce determination to make a difference. Both in my own life and in the lives of the people I have the privilege to be involved with – including you J
OK – so what am I actually DOING? – well... I have set myself a goal so big that it keeps me awake at night. This is probably too much information but I actually get into a cold sweat when I think about what I am committing to.
It is spine-tingling fear, incredible anticipation and an over-whelming awareness that I cannot do it alone.
This time next year – March 201- – I will be on a flight to Kathmandu with the mission of climbing to the summit of Mount Everest and returning safely.
I am a mountaineer, so I understand the challenge of climbing the world’s highest mountain.
I am under no illusions that it will be a test of endurance, courage and determination beyond anything I have ever done.
And.. I am a lot like YOU.
Like you I have fears, bills, and the need to feed myself and my family.
Like you I want my life to count.
And possibly like you I dream big and want to make a difference. In particular, I want to inspire others – maybe like you – to go for gold, to stretch out to those things that you think are beyond you, to not “settle” for what others expect or to simply ‘get by’. We are capable of so much more.
So that’s why I am aiming for the summit of the highest mountain on the planet. So that you might catch a glimpse of what is possible when an ordinary person sets a goal that is extra-ordinary.
If you want to follow me on my journey and be inspired to act on your own dreams...
