Facing The Mountain

Sales is much like climbing a mountain on your journey your going to face many challenges.⠀

There will be mountain top experiences but there will also be valleys and plateaus..⠀

I had an experience a few years ago on climbing a mountain in Whistler BC.⠀

I am quite afraid of heights but didn’t think too much of it as for the first day we were on a nice wide path.⠀

The path was not easy as it was straight up for many hours however it was doable.⠀

On the second day after a bad sleep on the ground my husband and I embarked on day 2.⠀

For the first few hours we hiked across beautiful landscapes and I was enjoying mountain flowers and beautiful waterfalls.⠀

The more we hiked the narrower the path became and gradually we hit snow.⠀

I looked up ahead and could not believe what I saw it was sheer snow to the top of a mountain.⠀

I literally freaked out at the sheer thought of climbing the slippery slopes.⠀

I will not lie I was really afraid I even suggested to my husband that he climb it alone and I would hold down the fort. He did not budge he said we didn’t come this far to turn around.⠀

Reluctantly I clipped on the clamps on my hiking boots and started to climb.⠀

I think at one point I might even have cried.⠀

It took me a very long time to make this part of the journey.⠀

I remember at one point almost being paralyzed by fear.⠀

I sort of froze I was on my knees clinging to a rock looking over a sheer cliff.⠀

With a bit of nudging I finally made it to the top.⠀

It truly was a mountain top experience.⠀

The panoramic views were breathtaking and I felt a surge of emotion wave over me realizing I had overcome the mountain.⠀

Our journey in business and sales is very similar.⠀

You might be going along feeling pretty good and come across a seemingly insurmountable mountain.⠀

You might want to crumble and throw in the towel.⠀

You might even require a little bit of coaching to help you climb the mountain.⠀

However,when you finally face the mountain and move one foot in front of the other, you gradually will make progress.⠀

It might be slow progress but by looking straight ahead focusing only on your goal and never looking back step by step you can ascend to the top.
