Climbing Mt. Everest is among the toughest task and many dreams to climb instead of being aware of difficulties. People climbing successfully knows that there will be many hurdles while climbing, so they accept future hurdles as their companion.
There will be hurdles which will bring ups-and-downs while reaching the peak, but the person who accepts it will surely reach the peak.
Hurdle will delay and things won’t go as planned but with the consistent effort, you will reach the peak.
While climbing mountain like Mt.Everest there will hurdle like health issues, climate change, and other such reason. Climbers have to wait in their camp to recover, or wait for the climate suitable for climbing, thus delaying their journey.
Climate changes at a quick rate, due to this, climbers have to go down to base camp wait for the suitable climate. Many difficulties come, but they take rest, recover, and stand strong until they reach the peak of Everest.
What Can You Learn And Apply From Ups & Downs?
Every goal is attached with hurdles and difficulties. You may have extreme will-power and are dedicated, but from time to time you need to catch a break and recover. You need to take a break to recover and start strong the next day.
For weight loss, it’s recommended to eat healthy foods, but that doesn’t mean you have to quit food you like. You should reserve a day to eat food you like but without over-eating. By catching a short break and enjoying the food, you won’t get bored to follow a healthy eating routine. Even weight may fluctuate a little, but taking a break while following a healthy routine will keep you motivated.
Exercise is the best way to increase strength and burn fat. If you are dedicating 4-5 days per week, then your body deserves rest to recover.
You should apply the same rule and never forget to take rest to recover and enjoy the goal instead of struggling to achieve it. A goal should be responsible to bring change rather than adding challenges and difficulties in life.
Another important thing about ups-and-downs, embrace the failure and keep on moving. There is no successful goal without minor to major setbacks. Someday you will perform better while someday struggle to complete it.
There will be a week you will lose weight as per plan while there will be few weeks you won’t be able to reach the target.
Don’t lose hope over any minor setbacks.
As a day ends, analyze the failure and let them guide you to improve the next day.
A target acts as a pointer towards your end goal. Targets are required to keep you motivated to stay on the path; not to demotivate you when you don’t achieve it.
Every time you need not be a perfectionist, be a hustler. Keep up the hustle, improve, and enjoy the path.
If you don’t give time to relax and enjoy, every goal will look like a burden. Let the burden down; pause for a while to recover and later march towards your goal with new energy and motivation.
1. Accept That There Will Be Ups and Downs
Before planning a goal; first, convince yourself that there will be hurdles and setbacks. You should have relaxing and recovering rituals like mountaineers. As you embrace failure and take time to recharge your motivation, every goal simplifies and seems achievable.
2. Take Time To Recover
A mountaineer climbing Mt.Everest knows that they can’t reach the peak at one stop, so they set multiple camps on the way to rest and recover.
Follow the same path, always make time to rest and recover. As you take a rest, you will be recharged with every rest to push hard in the next attempt.
Next time, when you find that everything is in mess and feels the burden, make time for yourself to have a moment of pause. Take a break and it will be a great choice as it helps you to stay motivated throughout the entire journey.
