To have a goal is to drive yourself day after day...focusing on the dream that lies before you...expanding yourself so that you can become the person you have always dreamed you could be. To have a goal is to have a future full of hope, a driving force that stirs your soul, inspires you to greatness and unfolds a life that is reflective of who you are.
When Jo and I began this journey it came with the single decision to travel to Tanzania and climb Mount Kilimanjaro. I don't think that either one of us knew at that time how this single decision would impact our lives. A single goal set requiring months of planning, training, preparation and resulting in walking a path that has brought an amazing amount of determination, discipline, strength, friendship, compassion and self growth...all that and we haven't even reached the base of the mountain yet!
At the beginning of our journey I found a quote that resonated with me.
"Set a goal so big that you could never achieve it, Until you grow into the person that can"
After months of preparation we are getting very close to becoming the people that can achieve the goal that seemed so daunting in the beginning.
