Many a times, life becomes a difficult hill to climb. It poses so many uphill climbs and downhill slides full of rocks,   pebbles and stones that the mind gets boggled and goes numb. But then the same life also presents the challenges that men and women will love to surmount. Has the mankind not been pleased by defeating any and every obstacle that comes in its way to the progress of life.  Can we imagine for a minute the sense of achievement and the heavenly bliss and the excitement Sherpa Tenzing and Edmund Hillary must have experienced when they had hoisted the national flags of their respective countries after having reached the top of the Mount Everest? Did they for a minute ignore the obstacles and the difficulties they had faced while climbing .or for that matter does Bachhendri Pal not remember the avalanches and the snow storms when she dares to conquer the mountains again.  I am sure she must be remembering all the tough times, the turbulent weather and the impediments, the life threatening moments and the life saving graces   while climbing those daunting mountains again And again. It is the thrill of overcoming the difficulties and the obstructions

But how many of us can look at life as a challenge and take a vow every time we go downhill to bounce back again.  We mortals get overawed and deterred by the insignificant obstacles conjured and made big by our fearful minds.  We do not try with full faith in ourselves and complete trust in God almighty, because of the negativity controlling our minds. The negativity forces us to negate our own powers, our own objectivity and positivity. The result is that we concede and give in even before the skies above could give us the results of our sincere efforts. Just think of those Olympians who having lost the chance to win a gold medal in one Olympics , do not give up but continue with their practice for next four years   with the   hopes  and determination that next time they will make it.

These truths are not mere stories to motivate but experiences to be shared with men and women to tell them that you still can do it. Just get up and get moving the mountain top waits for you .
