8 Life Lessons Learned From Mount Kinabalu

In May 2017, I climbed Mount Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia for the very first time. In fact, it is my first time ever to climb any mountain for that matter. So, it was a very meaningful trip for me.

As I have a bad left knee, I took my own sweet time to complete the 4,095 meter-climbs. I was sure I was the last person to make it to the check point. Because of that, I had plenty of time to contemplate and take stock of my life.

In this video, I share on the 8 key-lessons which I took back with me from Mount Kinabalu. In summary, they are:


1) Wanting is not enough. You must be willing.

2) Where you start is not as important as where you finish.

3) The hardest part is the final 10% nearest to your goal.

4) Use milestones to motivate yourself towards your goal.

5) Only perfect practice makes perfect. Practise the right things.

6) Focus on what you want, not what you don't want.

7) Focus on your breathing. You achieve more when you are calm.

8) Find a coach to help you up your game.

Watch the video for the full examples and explanation of each lesson and do share with me what you think in the comments below. I look forward to hearing from you .
