“… every­body has their own pri­vate Mount Eve­rest they were put on this earth to climb.

“And most peo­ple who end up never clim­bing it, do so because they didn’t rea­lize it was there in the first place. Admit­ting that it’s there is a scary and uncer­tain busi­ness. Admit­ting that it’s there is half the battle.”

This hits me right between the eyes, because I feel like it is only recently that I’ve recognized one of my personal Everests (I believe we might face more than one Mt. Everest in life).

Hugh MacLeod over at GapingVoid.com has oodles of inspiration and good advice for creative types. Today I was inspired by his talk on The Art of Not Sucking — take a look and let me know what you think!

What was your favorite part?

It's not enough to dream. One must have beautiful dreams. - Hugh MacLeod
