60 Seconds for Motivate Your Monday: What If You Have Nothing To Hold On To?
by Diane Wyzga | May 15, 2023 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Thune, Switzerland!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Motivate Your Monday and your host, Diane Wyzga.
Maybe like me you’ve asked for help from a friend who said, “Just tie a knot in the end of your rope and hold on to that.”
With enough rope to tie a knot and enough strength to hold on you’ll probably be okay. But what if there’s nothing to hold on to?
We were high in the cold and snowy Canadian Rocky Mountains. 6 women and 2 guides on an Outward Bound mountaineering trip. Far above us and out of sight the guides had secured the climbing ropes beyond the cliff edge. In pairs we climbed up and rappelled down the sheer face of a mountain. Climbing up my partner froze midway between the top of the cliff edge and the rocky ground far below. She stammered out: “I can’t find anything to hold on to.” Time passed. And then a voice from far above us called out, “Grab it with both hands!” It worked! She got to the top! But how? My partner found the help she was looking for- inside herself.
Practical Tip: When you can’t find anything to hold on to, grab it with both hands!
