Very few of us will ever accomplish momentous things.

That’s just the reality.

Not from lack of dreaming, but from lack of action.

For those of us who do try, often there are things outside of our control that influence the outcome.

You can’t plan for every eventuality and even when you get it right you things can still go horribly, horribly wrong.

There’s a great line in the movie Everest “…the last word belongs to the mountain…”

In the context of life and business, the challenges we face may not always be within our control, but with the right attitude and if you prepare yourself by being adaptable you can avoid pitfalls, react and hopefully make it to the summit, whatever your personal summit may be.
