How Much Success Can You Stand?

Lessons Learned on the Way to Machu Picchu  

Reaching our milestones does not give us the innate capacity to be comfortable at higher business and professional elevations. We need time to adjust and adapt to the new altitude. A trip to Peru - going from sea level to 12,000 feet in a day - taught me the value of taking time to acclimate to altitude. The body knows what the mind thinks it can ignore. That's why when we are climbing the heights to success, we need oxygen.

For busy entrepreneurs, executives and professionals oxygen is the support of people,  systems and resources, as well as guidance on the sometimes rocky and steep path to success. This keeps us from becoming disoriented, exhausted and disheartened as we climb to the next peak. Instructions for flying at altitude make this clear. "If the oxygen masks drop, put your mask on first." The reason is simple. Too many seconds without oxygen literally clouds our thinking - compromising our ability to know that we are making bad decisions. Having the help we need allows us to enjoy the thrill of reaching new heights in business, leadership and our lives.
