Have you ever climbed a mountain? There's nothing better than standing on top of the world with a 360-degree majestic view. From here, you can see forever, and this is one of the real rewards. Of course, there are many other rewards, including getting physically and mentally stronger from challenging yourself, receiving positive feedback in knowing you can accomplish a big goal, gaining confidence in your abilities, spending time with friends, learning to make good decisions along the way and enjoying the journey. Everyone has a mountain to climb in life. By Theresa Szczurek
