The World’s Most Profound Hiking Tip

When I was hiking the Inca Trail a friend of mine said something that changed my life.  The trail is 25 miles of intense hiking at altitudes above 12,000ft.  We looked back over the trail after a particularly grueling section and in passing my friend said, “It’s amazing what you can get accomplished if you just put one foot in front of the other.”

It wasn’t a new revelation.  I had just never heard it put that way before.  I thought about it for days after that and considered the implications.

I can be the world’s best husband if I take it one day at a time.  Be the best I can be – every day.

I can write a book.  One word after another.  Do that day after day and you’d be amazed how much you can get written.

I can get through any challenge.  One step at a time.  I just have to keep marching and looking ahead.

Whatever trail God has you on, I can guarantee you that it has a destination.  Keep watching Him and putting one foot in front of the other.  You’ll be amazed how far you can get if you just hold on and keep hiking.
