During a recent hiking trip, we encountered a section where we had to scramble across big boulders. As someone who had a previous injury, I knew it would be a challenge. Despite the difficulty, I knew I had to push through and find a way to make it across. At first, I felt awkward and embarrassed as I struggled to navigate the rocks. However, I quickly realized that I just had to do it in whatever way worked best for my body. I reminded myself that it’s not about how it looks to others, but rather about what gets me to where I want to go.
This experience reminded me of a valuable lesson that can be applied to life in general. If you want to achieve something, you have to be willing to do it even if it feels awkward or uncomfortable. Sometimes, the path to success requires pushing through obstacles and challenges. It may not always be easy, but the reward is worth it. By doing what’s best for our bodies and ourselves, we can accomplish great things.
Ultimately, my experience taught me to trust my instincts and listen to my body. We all have our unique challenges and limitations, but we also have the ability to find a way to work around them. Whether it’s hiking or pursuing any other goal in life, the key is to do it in a way that feels authentic and true to ourselves. So, whatever challenges you may face, remember to do it however works best for you, and keep pushing forward towards your goals.
This is at the core of what I teach my clients. I teach my clients about themselves and then they can choose what works best for them so they can achieve their goals and at times decide not to both have value.
