“It’s possible to climb to the top without stomping on other people.” -Taylor Swift

When I first read this quote my mouth dropped in awe of the truth that this statement holds. We can get to the top of any mountain without trampling over others. You don’t necesssarily have to bring someone with you. (If truth be told, there are quite a few that enjoy the view from the ground anyway.) However, if you find yourself climbing to the top, be sure to take note of your surroundings. You don’t have to be an underminding backstabber to get to where you’re going successfully. Stay focused on your goals. Strive to remain committed and watch the elevation. When you arrive at the peak, don’t forget to share with others how to get there too.

I enjoy coaching and motivating others to success, whether it's in my profession of education or spiritually. I believe that we all have a purpose on this journey and some of us tap into our purpose sooner than others. Wherever you are in your walk, I'd like to encourage you to either get started or keep going! Whatever you do, DON’T GIVE UP!

One thought on “the Mountaintop

  1. Thank you, for this encouragement. Because many people try their best to keep others at a stand still position and if you not careful with those who are surrounding you with all their negativity then you will fine yourself discouraged not moving forward or maintaining your steadfastness. I’m learning that my success is not determined on others it’s in the plan and the blueprint that God has created my life to be. So in his timing I will be right in the place that is purpose for my life anyway without stomping on others. Keep the faith and stay strong in adversity.
