Everything worthwhile is uphill

THE VIEW FROM THE TOP OF THE HILL By John Maxwell  

Everything worthwhile is uphill.

I’ve been saying that a lot lately. Because it’s a fact. Almost everything that has value, almost everything that has purpose, requires work on our part to attain it. We have to put in the effort to get what to where we want to go.

If everything worthwhile is uphill, that means you have to make the choice to go and get it. You have to put one foot in front of the other and take that hill a step at a time. You must grow and stretch yourself a little every day. You may not conquer a mountain at first, but for every hill you do conquer, you gain confidence for the next climb. And there is always another hill to start climbing from the bottom.

I’m at a point in my life where I could choose to coast – I’ve been climbing hills for over forty years now. People ask me all the time when I’m going to retire, or if I’m ever going to take it easy. And I’ll tell you what I tell them: I’m not ready to coast. So why do I keep climbing?

Because what I’m going after every day in this season of life is worth it. The growth I discover as I push toward the top of my current hill is worth more to me than the temporary joy I’d get from coasting, even for a little while. And that’s the secret. Whatever you put at the top of your hill, it must be something that makes the journey worth it.

So what about you? Have you been coasting?
