Mindpower – How to Stop Ruminating
That which you nurse grows.
If you have a problem or an issue that you are dealing with it can take over your thoughts and your life.
Break your problem down and de-tooth it.
Plot a solution into tiny building blocks. Break it down so it doesn’t seem so immense in your life and break it down to do something today.
The Summit Ridge of Everest is the most remote place on earth.
Cold, haunting and lonely.
And in the mountains death is real.
Why does Patrick climb when most of us would be tucked up in bed asleep on our pillows?
The answer…. the sheer stunning natural beauty of planet earth and the privilege of being places few people have been.
The mountains also put you in touch with questions of death and recognition of the fragile state of human life. You also see the corporate rat race is not entirely real and you don’t have to go down that road if you choose.
Patrick’s advice from the highest peaks in the world is to give up your clutch for comfort and embrace opportunities for the unknown and adventures. Going out into the unknown makes you a better person on the other side.
