The quote, “the best view comes after the hardest climb”, is something that fits perfectly into my life right now.
Recently, I took the GRE to improve my application for Business School. However, the story isn’t that simple. I spent 6 months studying for the GRE about a year ago, took it 3 times, and still didn’t end up with a score competitive enough for the schools I want to go to. So, I took some time off, refocused, and hit it again for the last 2 months to finally get my score where it needs to be. That, mixed in with enrolling and removing myself from different schools, has made for quite an emotional journey.
I am confident that the best view will come after this hardest climb that I have been enduring for over a year. I am a firm believer in having faith in the process, and I don’t see this quote as conflicting with that. I see the view at the end as a way of reflecting on the journey and appreciating it even more. When presented with challenges, you should know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. All of the time you spend alone working hard at your office will lead you to the end product you wanted. How is that for positive thinking?
