How High Can You Climb

Sometimes climbing up the proverbial corporate ladder isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Just when you think you are on your way to the top, you feel a short tug at the leash that binds you.

Don’t let anyone or anything hold you back from your dreams, goals or aspirations. If you want to explore––then explore. Look up to the sky and visualize yourself standing at the summit. It’s within reach if you want it, but you might have to go at it alone.
