When I returned from Everest, this coverage was waiting for me in Hindustaan Times 27th may 2019. Not only that the whole media and press were sharing this news. Now I realised, I had more responsibility as a citizen to share my wisdom and inspire others to follow their dreams.
A woman who believes” Nothing is impossible”
I have always believed that once you focus totally on something , it is quite possible to make it come true. But it is plausible with hardwork, determination and will to carry it through. I am not the same person I was before I climbed Mount Everest. Internally I have changed so much that, I find my calling is now way above materialism and ” just being there” to be acknowledged or accepted by anyone.I have undertaken to chose my time to use it to the best of my capabilities given that theres still so much to do in life. My experiences and knowledge will be shared globally now.
I remember when I first saw this 90 feet headwall moving from camp 1 19500 feet to camp 2 21500 feet, on my first rotation, I paused and looked up and what came to my mind was simply” let me put all my strength into doing this” . Nor once did I think, ” this cannot be done.” The same mindset continued all the way upto Mount Everest. I have stretched my mind to do impossible tasks now. And this headwall was climbed not once but 3 times up and 3 times down for my Everest expedition.
My learning from this has been that the tasks ahead of you will always be difficult and seem impossible. Your internal dialogue will determine your success.
Most of all, do not forget to breathe , enjoy and savour your journey. I can look back and say ” My journey to Everest and back ” was safe, enjoyable and full of memories that I share with thousands now.
I would love to hear from you.
