Lessons from the Eiffel Tower
Before heading to Paris, we decided that if we were going to visit the Eiffel Tower we needed to go allllll the way to the top. So we bought 3 Eiffel Tower Summit tickets. Vince and Vinnie were very excited about this. I was excited about the idea of it. But I was not excited about the actual doing of it – the endless ride in a glass elevator to a tiny landing way high up in the sky on a structure that most certainly could topple over at any given moment. Not. My. Thing.
We did make it to the top. And – SURPRISE – I did not die.
Once back on firm ground (thank you Baby Jesus), I was able to walk about from my Summit experience with some positive and powerful insights that I think might be helpful to you. These lessons apply to everyday life – not just high in the sky adventures:
- Sitting with discomfort will eventually get more comfortable
- From way up high you can see how much you’re missing out on
- You can cling to what is comfortable and comforting, but little reaches out of your comfort zone create momentum and progress
- There is relief in doing something hard and scary and it feels magical and powerful
Listen in to hear about our European adventures and specifically about me surviving the Eiffel Tower Summit – where I thought I would most certainly die. Not exaggerating.
