(to you who are in need of a different perspective and higher view)
All great leaders have understood this concept.
It is not just 'getting away from it all' in order to think.
When the demands of daily life subtly whisper to you that you CAN'T climb the mountain, that you can't take time to gain greater clarity, RESIST, say NO... and take your stand....
It takes effort to scale those heights, but it is so worth it, and it changes everything
At the top of the mountain, at the very pinnacle, the air is clear... and the view is complete... 360, all the way around from every angle.... a very very different view from when we are in the trenches.
From that elevated mountain top you can see all the beauty and amazing stuff that has been all around you that had gone unnoticed cuz you weren't in the right spot to view it. With that more comprehensive view you can see how things connect.... see the BIG PICTURE... which will instantly show you how things fit into your life, where you need to go next and what you need to do.
From up there our huge problems on the ground look miniscule and manageable.... and then when we come back down to our regular routine, we do indeed find that those same problems and challenges still appear small because we now see them in their proper perspective.
Please share with me, when you can, what you are learning. I'd love to hear from you.
