WQWWC #36 TOPIC: WRITER’S CHOICE OR MOUNTAINS
Thinking of mountains I am reminded of molehills!
Some people are so fond of creating a big deal out of nothing. All the drama, excitement eventually yields nothing. And the one creating the fuss usually moves on unabashed!
Successful people see opportunities in every problem! This is the attitude that makes us able to minimize our troubles and maximize our opportunities. When faced with a challenge, we can either rise to it by seeing it as a way of getting ahead, or as that mountain that cannot be conquered.
Why do people try to climb a mountain? Most people would say that because it’s there. It presents a challenge. It also motivates us to see what is on the other side. The view from the top is no doubt magnificent, but the fact that we are standing on the top of the mountain is a testament to the fact that we conquered it. We had the will and strength to climb to the top. We deserve the beautiful view and the feeling of elation that accompanies it.
“Only if you’ve been in the deepest valley, can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain”
Being sad is equated to feeling low or down, and elation is referred to as being high. When we are feeling low, as in the depths of despair, we need something to lift us out of it. That something is our own determination and positive attitude. The true appreciation we have for euphoria is after we have felt the downward spiral of sadness.
Stay happy and feel on the top of the world!
