Yesterday we took a rare day off and went walking in the Mourne Mountains - might not seem to exciting but for me it was a huge day as i beat one of my greatest fears!
I have spent years looking over at the mountains from the beach where we write weekly goals or driving by them to visit our wonderful Scentsy team in Northern Ireland. I have always wanted to climb up one and see the amazing views from the top but in reality have just wasted years making up excuses why i can't possibly make this. Excuses i spoke to Scott about range from:
Then we come to the excuses I didn't talk of:
Looking at all of these points the only thing is really fear was failing - and that's something we can all relate too. I say to our Scentsy team members all the time 'Just try it and don't worry if it fails, at least you tried'....mmmm hands up who thinks I needed to follow my own advice? Well yesterday i did follow the advice and i just went for it - i climb 3km of mountain to the crag i always saw from the road. It turns out the mountain continues up further than the crag i always saw from the road but reaching my crag stretched me physically and gave me such a feeling of achievement that i did a victory dance (other walkers loved it).
Now i know i can conquer my back pain and fear of failure there are more walks planned (Bray this weekend as i have a Scentsy party there at night) and of course back t the mountain so i can stand on the top eventually. I know i am not alone in being fearing failure - i am sure most of you reading this Scentsy Blog can relate to it. Why not tell me below what you fear and then write back when you do it ;-) We would love to celebrate your success.
