Reflection on a Famous Quote – February 14, by Danny J. Stevens

“It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.”

 Edmund Hillary


When we face our fears, the fears disappear. There is an old saying, “Fear knocked on the door, faith answered it, and behold nothing was there.” In your past you likely have a few examples. Even if it was in your youth, as you lay with your head covered for fear of the shadows in your room. Eventually, you had to take the risk and get out of bed and turn on the light. Once you did this the shadows were gone and the familiar objects returned to the room. What you were afraid of was no longer there. We didn’t conquer the room, but we conquered a perception we once held!

What perception, mountain or shadow are you going to conquer today?
