False Evidence Appearing Real

I recently brought a bring of mine to try out rock climbing. She was very eager to try it out when she hear of the idea. However, little did she anticipate the heights she had to climb. In her first climb she could only do half way.

She was just too afraid to go further. The good thing she then did was to clarify how the belaying works, what happens if she misses a holder and falls. I also thought her a few moves that would help her.

When she attempted it again... she made it!

You should have seen her face! The great sense of accomplishment of being able to conquer it!

There seems to be a lot of discussion about fear. Believe it or not, all of us are actually learning to cope with it. There are many people I know who cannot progress in their career just because they fear being a leader. There are also many people who fear having a lot of money!

Nevertheless, fear really means... False, Evidence, Appearing, Real! Sometimes, the only thing one has to do is to talk about it and get better clarification of what to expect. That would give us enough confidence to face it and to manage it.

Slow Down and Observe

In my last post, I talked about my coach traversing on the bouldering wall effortlessly. I then took it as a project to repeatedly do that route. This time, rather than focusing on completely the route. I focused on my moves. I wanted to ensure that I would use the best possible move that would be most efficient.

So, I slowed down and observe every single move I made. When I did that, I was able to learn a lot of techniques and I was able to complete the route effortlessly too!

How many times have you heard this "Success is all about the journey and not the destination!" Well, it is true. We often rush to reach the destination. However, sometimes we ought to slow down and observe what is happening. Not only do we have to observe it, we then have to understand it too. This will bring a lot of enlightenment to attaining your success.
