The one thing I always remember when I get lazy and lethargic isdogs who climb Mount Everest. Yes, this is an actual thing that happens (more than once). How can you still sit in bed and feel lazy and lethargic when you realize there are dogs out there, climbing one of the toughest mountains in the world? You can’t, and that is exactly why I am sharing it with you. My thoughts are, if it can inspire me to get out of bed on my laziest and toughest days, then maybe it will do the same for you.
I mean, think about that feat for a second. The actual act of dogs who climb Mount Everest. They climb up an insanely high mountain on all fours. The oxygen at that level is extremely thin, and the dangers to the dogs (and to the humans they are assisting) are almost too numerous to mention here. But you know what you will never see? A dog that stopped, or turned around, or gave up. You just wont see that. Why? Because that is not programmed in a dog’s nature. Giving up is not an option. So don’t you think we could learn something from the dogs here. If they can climb a mountain, there is nothing we can’t do.
So the next time you are having a gray day, or don’t feel like getting out of bed, remember, there are dogs who climb Mount Everest.
