Dreams without movement are delusions, escapes, kids play. You have to put your feet into your dreams if they’re ever going to be reality.
~ Paul Newman
It is said that mountain goats are the most extraordinary mountaineers around. It is their innate ability to adapt to their conditions and do the thing they are put on this earth to do…climb those dang mountains!
Mountain goats have been endowed with a body built for scaling the sides of mountains and going after what they want.
“Their hooves have a hard outer case that allows them to dig into almost-invisible ledges… and mold to contours in the mountain’s surface like climbing shoes.
…their bodies appear thick and muscular from the side … a shape that is conducive to maintaining balance on narrow protrusions.”

So okay, you’re not a mountain goat but you, too, can scale mountains and achieve exactly what you want…by adapting how you approach the things that feel like gigantic obstacles.
Most entrepreneurs forever tread the same path wishing and wanting more and different but never really making space for change to take place.
Some of us have fixed mindsets, that is, they believe that they are born with all the stuff they’re ever gonna have and there’s no amount of work that’ll change that. 😳 (ikr!!!)
I, however, have a different view. I’m gonna find a way to scale my mountains, to change how I think about a thing in order to get closer to my ultimate goals or change a habit that is no longer serving me.
This type of shift is part of a growth mindset.
According to Carol Dweck, a researcher at Stanford University, “People with a growth mindset have an underlying belief that their learning and intelligence can grow with time and experience”. Yes! Yes! Yes! THIS exactly.
What’s the point of existing in this big beautiful world of ours if not to keep learning and doing and astounding ourselves and each other with brilliant work that changes the world for the better.
I am all about a growth mindset. I’ve based my entire business around helping female entrepreneurs shift their thinking so they can do the powerful work the world needs them to continue doing. Work that changes hearts and minds and circumstances the world over.
And, the fact that I help women step into their innate power to do this work lights me up and puts a fire in my belly so strong.
I always knew I’d be destined for greatness. Hadn’t a clue how it would show up or what I’d be doing or even how I’d be doing this work but it was a such a certainty in my 12 year old mind way back when.
Do you remember your childhood dreams of who you’d become? Are you living it right now or waiting for your train to arrive. DO NOT keep standing on the sidelines waiting, waiting, waiting hon.
Be more like a mountain goat. Be sure footed and swift, take the risks and go do the thing(s) you are meant to be doing.
