Mountain guides do not climb mountains for people. Nothing is accomplished really, if you hire me as your mountain guide and pay me merely to plant your flag on the summit while you sip martinis and observe me through a telescope down at the lodge.
As your guide, I will help you plan a climb. We assess your readiness for the climb; examine what you have and what you will need in equipment and resources. Together we determine a route to take. We plan how long the journey will take and allow for elements we can’t control, be it the weather, or a family crisis. We examine what your personal goals are. Are you a peak- bagger, or more into the sheer experience of the high country? We get clear on what a successful and fulfilling climb will be for you.
Mountain guides do not make people climb mountains. The motivation for the climb has to be within the climber. During times of discouragement I may lend support, or even challenge you to reach a little deeper for strength I know you have. I also know that your chances of success are far greater if your motivation is internal. You WANT to climb this mountain! You are excited about it, and you anticipate that the journey will in itself be a large part of the pleasure of the experience. It works best when it is not fear- based motivation. You are not climbing the mountain because you are afraid of what will happen if you don’t!
Most importantly, your chances of success are far greater just because you are not doing it alone. Knowing that I am there with you on the journey shifts your entire mental approach. As you push through the temptation to turn back prematurely (as you may have done so often in the past) as you look over at me climbing beside you. You know I will hold you accountable to yourself to do what you said you have come to do. You also know you retain your freedom, and if you choose to turn back you know you will not be criticized for it. When we do summit it is your flag that is planted, not mine, for this was your journey. It was you and the mountain. Your coach was like a good solid rope…a support.
If you are ready to begin your climb, first of all, let me say that I am so proud of you! Making that decision is not an easy one, but I promise, it is a worthwhile one! And just remember…a year from now, you’ll wish you would have started yesterday!
