You know, everytime we hike to the top of a mountain, I’m reminded of this quote.
Last year, I reached my personal best early in the hiking season when we sumitted Freel Peak (10,886 feet) …and less than a month later, we attempted Mt. Whitney which, while we didn’t summit, it did become my new personal best (12,500 feet was where I got altitude sickness).
So, today, this side of besting my personal best, I am reminded of every time I’m on a trek, it’s me vs. me. I’m pushing myself to do better, go farther, be more nimble, etc. And it’s all subjective, right? I mean only I know how hard I pushed the time before. Only I know how far I got on a previous trip. And this doesn’t just apply on the mountain… it applies in every area of my life.
All this to say… I’m reminded of the fact that I’m constantly growing and conquering myself.
How are you conquering yourself?
