There are three types of mountain climbers: gazers, hikers, and movers. Be brave and pick out the one that fits your personality from the description below.


What kind of climber are you?


Mountain gazers are overwhelmed.
Mountain hikers may one day reach the top.
Mountain movers simply move the obstacle out of the way.




Let’s be honest. We all experience those moments of not knowing how to find the best trail. Sometimes we give up. Sometimes we start out blindly without a course of action, and sometimes we get organized and kick that mountain into the depths of the sea.

Here are five ways to approach steep paths by using CLIMB as an acronym.


Look up and make a decision.

Clarify your problem. We all have them in a range of issues—how to effectively parent, how to keep our homes clean, how to manage finances, how to process career challenges, and so much more. Write down what is plaguing your world. Ignoring an issue doesn’t make it go away. In fact, the mountain extends higher than we can see. Give that worrisome situation to God and seek His help.

List the possible solutions. Be creative. When we expand our thinking, answers to the most difficult of circumstances become clearer. Now make a decision.

Initiate a plan of action. Back to pencil and paper—or the computer keyboard. Organization inRKS9M8PY0X our strategy gives us a roadmap, a chronological means of attaining our goal. Include every step necessary to complete your plan of action.

Motivate yourself to get the hard work completed. Our problems can still threaten to devastate us and keep us awake at night. Make us ill and irritable. We’ve done the difficult tasks. Now we have to follow through.

Believe in your strengths and accept what you can and can’t do. Reach out for help when needed.

Lace up those boots, stretch, and get your mind in efficiency mode.

Are you ready to climb?
