Hello Friends! Sir Edmund Hillary, who won worldwide acclaim in 1953 by becoming the first to scale the 29,035-foot summit of Mount Everest, the world’s tallest peak, died this past week. I am impressed with those who show us, like Hillary, that we can conquer seemingly impossible tasks. An associate of mine used to sign off on his e-mail messages with this phrase: “Those who say that something is impossible should get out of the way of those of us who are doing it.” I also like this quote that is attributed to Edmund Hillary: “It is not the mountains we conquer but ourselves.” Good luck with your mountains today!
Good Morning Friends! Last week when I sent a message about facing our giants, I got more responses than normal. It seems that everyone has current giants. Our desire for security sometimes gets us stuck on this side of our giants. I really like what Helen Keller had to say about security – and for those of you who may have forgotten, Helen Keller was both blind and deaf… “Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature nor do the children of man as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” – Helen Keller mortgage market susan tompor Enjoy the adventure!
