The Top of the Mountain
During grad school I always gave myself the visual of climbing a steep mountain. As we climb the mountain towards our goals, we sweat, we have pain, we struggle. Sometimes it is very unclear how everything will come together. We must train ourselves to be in the moment. We fall into the trap of regret by thinking of the past, or anxiety by stressing about the future. You must remind yourself that one day you will be where you're trying to go. When you reach the top well, guess what? You will have a clear visual of all of the other mountain tops you can climb and the process never ends. Keep climbing!
