The Inca Trail as a Metaphor for Life

I just hiked the Inca trail in Peru! It was one of the hardest things I have ever done both mentally and physically! Before we began one of our guides took me aside and said, “Are you the leader of this group?” I responded “yes.” He leaned in closer and looked me in the eye and said “You have a great responsibility. You will determine how the group does on this trail. They will look to you as their guide to find strength, encouragement and positive thinking. If you are positive they will be and if you are scared they will be.” I said “Yes, I don’t take that responsibility lightly.” He said “yes, but, this is even more serious because the mountain hears you. She will hear your thoughts and your words and she will give you whatever you are asking for. It is imperative that you keep you thoughts pure as we embark on this journey.”

What is standing between YOU and what you WANT?
