What's Your Everest?
If Everest was a walk-in-the-park no one would bother. It’s because it’s such an awe-inspiring challenge that people do it.
The fact is this - There will be hardships and obstacles. At times, you will wonder if it’s worth it.
The same goes for any big challenge that children want to overcome. Whether it’s learning to ride a bike, staying away from home overnight or a bigger challenge such as climbing an actual mountain.
The key is to keep going. To persevere and show resilience. To not give up. Remember: The size of the accomplishment increases in direct proportion to the size of the challenge. If it is a great goal, expect great adversity and when obstacles arise, embrace them!
Obstacles are where we are tested. Every ‘no’, every rejection, every setback along the way is part of your Mount Everest. Keep the summit firmly in your vision. Know that the feeling from achieving your objective is far superior to any of the negative ones that you experience along the way.
What’s your Everest aims to build a tool kit that children can take with them into adult life.
The focus is placed on aspirations. What you want to achieve and how you plan on achieving it.
Thinking about the future and setting goals has a way of turning hopes and dreams into reality and accomplishments.
Everyone has their own Everest to climb. No matter how big, or small it may seem, each of us faces challenges every day that we need to overcome. Developing a mechanism for doing this at an early age can help children to not only prepare for bigger challenges they may face in later life, but also highlight that anything can be achieved with the correct planning, training, support and guidance.
Below are the 7 key steps to consider:
