A few years ago, we joined a rock climbing gym, and for Christmas, we enrolled Jonathan and Benjamin in rock climbing camp. It’s so much fun to watch them learn and master this new skill! My hubby and I also take the time to climb ourselves during the two hours of their class. As I watched them, along with learning this skill myself, it occurred to me that this sport offers a lot of good life lessons that can be applied to all areas of life, not just rock climbing. Here are 10 helpful life lessons I learned from rock climbing.
These life lessons I learned from rock climbing are applicable in all parts of our lives. Adulting isn’t always easy. ;o) We’ll encounter many challenges and learn lots of life lessons along the way.
There will be people who say we can’t do it. Sometimes our own inner critic will be the loudest voice of discouragement. Just as with rock climbing, you’ll eventually make it to the top and the bumps along the way will just be learning experiences.
One day, you’ll look back and see how far you’ve come and how far your kids have come. You’ll be stronger. You’ll feel accomplished. And you’ll be able to help others make that climb as well!
