“Tend to the small things. More people are defeated by blisters than mountains.”

How often do you make mountains out of molehills?

Where do you tend to overreact or exaggerate the severity of a situation and get stopped in your tracks?

Obstacles in life are as predictable as taking our next breath. Unfortunately, many occur like an elephant sitting on our chest and we panic before we can take our next step.

How would a more measured and objective view of your current challenges help you step over and climb the hurdles facing you?

Remember: All mountain climbers experience blisters.


Where in your world are you making mountains out of molehills?

What small things can and will you tend to today to get over these humps?

  1. Love this question. For me, I get caught up in past disappointments or mistakes and when I see or experience something that reminds me of them, my brain immediately jumps to expecting the same outcome. I have been trying to be more ‘present’ in my decisions and how I react to these situations. I try to remind myself that just because something happened before, it doesn’t mean it will happen again. Take it one step at a time and don’t overthink it.
