Everywoman should climb a mountain!
Do I mean that metaphorically or literally?
I am personally climbing toward my highest and best, by looking out and up to a vision of what I could be if I had no fear. If there were no obstacles, what would I create in this life? And I take steps, slow certain and steady steps in the general direction of my focus. Sometimes I am not certain where I will end up.
This past month, March 2014 I arrived at the position of number one consultant with CruiseShipCenters in North America! I am not kidding! I work a full time job as a probation officer and for the past five years I have been slowly steadily building a travel consulting business. I had no idea I could reach this spot. The owner says no agent from our office has ever held that position. My results this month pushed our office into number one in Canada.
I don’t say this to brag, although I am pretty stoked about it …. I want to really understand what it means. I know I don’t do anything alone. I am traveling and planning and working with teams all the time. I always have a Tenzing Norgay with me.
Edmond Hilary once said “it is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves”. I have been working on my skills, my listening, my enthusiasm, my teamwork and my community involvement for years. I suppose my whole life thus far has brought me to this place, this moment, this success.
The Womens Travel Club meetup group in Victoria, where I live, is alive with some of the most amazing women I know. They are stepping up and saying to me “I want what your having” and they are coming on world travel adventures with me.
I am in awe and full of gratitude for all those who entrust me with their precious vacation plans. To my family, who I love with all my heart, to my friends who inspire me everyday to be even more than I believe I can be and to those women who have walked the ground before me. And a special thank you to those folks who make the choice to invite me into their lives and to help arrange and plan their vacations. It is an honour indeed.
You have hiked the mountain and left a trail. I walk now and leave a trail to those who follow. I am overjoyed with love and happy thoughts on where we go next, together! Thanks for the successful month and for being on my team.
Big BIG love to all.
