If you can't tell... I finally made it to the top! Some might say that the third time was the charm, but I know better.
The only reason I made it to the top was because of the lessons I learned from my first two attempts and the lessons I learned from watching other more successful and experienced climbers.
Here are some of the life lessons that I took away from the experience:
1. Never give up on yourself!
2. Be flexible
3. Almost should never be enough
4. Don't waste your time
5. Keep moving forward (or in this case upward)
In life there are no "do overs". However we are faced with opportunities everyday. It's up to us and only is to seize those opportunities. If we fail it is okay. As long as we learn something from it and we apply what we learn to our next attempt.
Oh by the way, achieving my goal to reach the top of the wall was and still is an amazing feeling! It has given me the confidence and motivation to start working on my next goal!
