I love quotes and I try to find a new one everyday to write in my quote book. I came across this one today and absolutely loved it! I think this quote is great because it is so true! Personally, I can relate to this because I remember my first therapy session with a client and I got so wrapped up in the "small pebbles", such as "I hope the child is going to like this activity," "I wonder if this child will be receptive to my style of teaching?" and all of the questions and thoughts that poured into my head. During the therapy session, all of those "small pebbles" begin to disappear as my comfort level increased. I came out of the session feeling as though I had "crossed the mountain" and accomplished something great. Each of us may have different "small pebbles" in our lives that try to hinder us from our "mountain" (end result). If we can challenge ourselves to change our thought process and visualize the outcome that we are aiming for, then it becomes easier to take the steps necessary to surpass the pebbles in our lives to rise to bigger things.
