I heard this term the a couple weeks ago on a podcast. It was referenced to a daughter trying to follow in her father’s very successful footsteps. She was concerned that she wasn’t doing enough to be like her dad.
Her father kindly stated: “Get off my mountain. Climb your own mountain.” I thought this was quite brilliant. I don’t know about you, but I sometimes try to be like other people. Maybe mimic their hair, clothes, etc. When really, I feel most comfortable in my own skin when I am myself. I buy clothes that suit me, let my hair be what it will be. I focus on walking a path that serves me, and no one else.
Today, I encourage you to find your mountain and climb as high as you possibly can. When the path you are on no longer serves you, find another that makes you happy. Success in our life, personal or business comes from making ourselves happy. Saying no to things that make us feel horrible or give us anxiety.
When we start viewing wellness as a way of life, we can see past the latest fads and quick fixes. Health and wellness information is coming from a wide variety of sources. Our social media feeds are filled with content devoted to making healthier living easier.
We are all vulnerable to the quick-fix promise. Yet… despite having all these resources and apps at our fingertips, people are still struggling to main basic healthy habits and some are dealing with serious lifestyle related health issues. Obviously, there is a disconnect somewhere.
If we can get you back to approaching wellness as a way of life rather than a commodity, you will see that your health is more manageable. You will realize that your daily actions and choices have the biggest impact on the quality of your life.
Your Adventure Rx can help you get your mental and physical health back onto the right path to healthy living. Most importantly, using our goal oriented strategies – we will have you feeling and looking good.
I’m inviting you to fill your prescription now!
