“The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a woman’s foot long enough to enable her to put the other somewhat higher.”
—Thomas Henry Huxley
We encounter “rungs” in different places; mainly on our jobs or maybe at school.
But you know what? We can also elect to leverage the mental and emotional rungs we face.
In order to “go higher,” we have to elevate our mindset.
Let’s take our ideas, creativity and critical thinking skills and use them as rungs in life’s “ladders” to soar to new heights of accomplishment.
And even after we have achieved the goals we set and reached certain heights, let’s look at those experiences and say, “Take me higher!”
Join in the Fray: On which of life’s ladders do you want to climb higher?
Note: Thomas Henry Huxley’s original quote read as below. We modified it to address women.
“The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man’s foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.”
