I’ve visited the mountains twice during the last two months. They are immaculate. Marvelous landscape, clean air, friendly people and amazing time altogether trigger positive emotions. But, at the same time, the climbing mountains is complicated, difficult and even dangerous.
Mountains are often compared to life, growth and professional ambitions.
A way of life is truly beautiful, yet quite difficult. Maybe some people love the mountains because of the opportunity to experience the paths of life.
Today I want to quote Theodore Roosevelt: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
If we climb a mountain right now, the peak is to achieve excellence in sales. I’m grateful that we have an awesome team, yet changing the processes and approaches is a must. We’ve been working hard and I can see good results.
...There’s life. And where is life, there is growth.
