Climbing Mt. Apo: An Uphill Battle

Climbing Mt. Apo is a very exciting prospect.

The feeling of trekking uphill for the first time makes your heart beat faster and gives you a rush of adrenaline. More so if you’re about to head for the tallest mountain in the Philippines. It can certainly feel good when you’re already there. Before that, though, there may be a bigger challenge – getting yourself to actually commit to the climb.

Making that decision can be hard for most people.

You may be feeling the fear yourself. What if I don’t make it to the top? What if I get too tired early? What if I don’t have the endurance to make it? These and many other questions may be on your mind when you have never climbed a mountain yet.

It’s a valid concern. People always fear things they are not sure of because they like to be in control. The issue, though, is exactly that you are not sure of what will happen. Yes, you could be tired early. Yes, you may not make it to the top. All of these are possible, but they are not certain.

Now turn all of that the other way around.

Ask yourself these questions instead: What if I do make it to the top? What if I do have the endurance? What if I won’t get tired easily?

See how everything changes? It’s all in the attitude. If you really, genuinely want to climb Mt. Apo, you have to convince yourself that it’s worth a shot. Don’t let those fears take control of you. Instead, face those fears and watch them disappear. You will be surprised at what you can do when you set your fear aside. Do it anyway. After you’re done with the climb, you will thank yourself a lot.
