Climb up the rock face – reach for your stars

Climb up the rock face – reach for your stars
This morning I had a brilliant realisation. Chasing your dreams is much like rock climbing. Both take training, courage, determination and persistance. The higher you climb, the more terrifying the fall. The ultimate view from the top though, makes every scratch and scrape worth it.
A harness keeps us safe as we stretch out longer, achieve greater heights and hang on for dear life. I find inspirational quotes provide this same welcome relief. They are a good thing to rely on should you slip and fall.
Here are 5 of my favourites. Please add them to the safety harness for your dream chasing.
“If you can’t believe in miracles, then believe in yourself. When you want something bad enough, let that drive push you to make it happen. Sometimes you’ll run into brick walls that are put there to test you. Find a way around them and stay focused on your dream. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
― Isabel Lopez
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
– Harriet Tubman
“You can get what you want or you can just get old.”
― Billy Joel
“Greatness is finding your natural talent, fueling it with passion, planting it in well-nourished soil, and toiling in the garden until it breaks through the earth and reaches for the stars.”
― Janet Autherine
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
