Believe and You Can Achieve!

Believe and You Can Achieve!

For years I have wanted to rock climb. A few weeks ago one of my friends offered to help me climb. I work out so much, I thought physically it shouldn't be a problem. And it wasn't. It was looking down twelve feet hanging on the wall thinking it's time to get my feet on the ground.

So the first time I got up fifteen feet. It sure was fun, however I was glad to be on the ground. I had a decision, I could say that I rock climbed and never climb again. Or face the challenge and go try again.

The next day I climbed again, I got up to about the same height, then came back down. The next time I learned how to belay, that's the person that pulls the rope up as the climber climbs. That made me feel better about falling. All you have is a harness, a rope, a knot and the belay to save you if you fall. You have to trust it!

Once I gained the trust in the rope and falling, I knew I could get to the top. So I started to climb. Don't look down, don't think about how high you are, trust in the rope and the belay. I fall back to gain a bit more trust in the rope and the belay. Then one hand and one foot at a time, climbed up to the top in and rang the bell. A great feeling. Coming down was great.

Then I climbed again on another side. How awesome! I could feel my legs, forearms and biceps burning. As I walked away, it was great. Facing the fear of heights, falling and learning to believe in yourself.

If you can believe you can achieve!

Go out there and achieve!
