Mountains are a journey through life. A mountain builds character, humility, and brings us to our purpose. It has a definite starting and stopping point. Getting to the other side of the mountain is a process. First there is preparation. This includes training, planning, and prayer. You must have a mindset to complete your goal. Never go onto the mountain without planning to finish. You have to train your mind because it controls every bodily function. For instance, your mind can make you sit down, run, walk, or just do nothing. Get in your mind that you are going to cross this mountain and get to your goal. Ninety percent of the journey is attitude. The Israelites took 40 years to travel to the promise land when it should have taken no more than 10 days. It was their complaining attitude that took them 40 years. Understand that if you are in it for the long haul, you must get the proper resources, materials, and tools for the trip. If you don’t, you will be inadequate in your travels. Those tools could be education, tips, and wisdom from others. The best experience is wisdom that you learn from others because you’ll learn their failures and successes.
