I think this is a great quote and it should really prompt us to plan and organise and be ready.
You need to put in the work to make things happen and you’re unlikely to get results by pure chance. You’ll also have to work out exactly what you need to do and who can help you do it.
People get to the top of mountains with a mixture of hard work and determination, so you should be ready for this right from the start.
It's also worth taking the time to really think about why you want to do something and what it will do for you. It’s easy to get carried away and climb your mountains ‘because they are there’, but is it really the best use of your valuable time?
