The 7th pillar: accomplishment
I’ve already identified the 6 pillars of my ideal, balanced life.
But there was one missing.
After a few weeks and months of testing those pillars, I found out there was one missing for me to have an accomplished life.
One which is not vital.
But one which is necessary.
One without which I would never have gotten that far.
One with which I will continue to grow.
One which is both scary and exciting.
This is a component in every one of my 6 first pillars.
This idea has been nurturing for years in my head. Slowly, I have experienced many forms of discomfort.
Today, I’m able to follow what the guys from Yes Theory are teaching: actively seeking discomfort.
This 7th pillar drives me to places I would never go otherwise.
I’m incredibly mentally tougher than a few months and years ago.
I’m able to live and enjoy more with less.
That’s was the whole point of opening myself to minimalism.
And this opens a broad dimension of freedom.
I lived my life as a fight. I used to combat my mind everyday in order to grow.
But doing it over and over, it feels less like a fight.
And more like a hike.
Don’t fool yourself: it’s hard.
Most of the time, I climb.
Sometimes, I rest on the side of the road and admire the landscape.
By moments I have the luck to have company in my ascent. Even though I know it won’t be for ever, I’m grateful to share my journey
But here’s the thing about my life ascent: it’s not a regular hike.
I know I will never reach the top. Because there’s none.
But I feel accomplished doing my best at climbing.
And on the verge of my death, I would look down the hill and only be proud of reaching that high.
