When trekking the Himalayas, most people will be looking forward to seeing snowy mountains and beautiful sky but that was not the case for the first few days of the trek. You will have to walk through the forest, unable to see what you came here to see most of the time. It was not until you walked for ~32 hours, then you will start seeing snowy mountains.
In life, when you set off to do something, the end result will not take shape until you invest countless hours shaping it. Coming up with the idea is not enough, you have to plan, get your hands dirty and then work for it. Just like trekking the Himalayas, you can’t sleep your way up mountains, you have to climb those stairs if you want to be at the top.
