Phil Cannella Tells us a Life Lesson About Mount Everest – Phil Cannella News

Phil Cannella makes astute observation

Phil CannellaPhillip Cannella News: Phil Cannella makes a very astute observation about life when hearing people exclaim: “I did it” when accomplishing a task of some sort. This all comes back to “cycles” a subject Phil Cannella talks much of.

Phil Cannella makes an analogy of Mt. Evererst

Phil Cannella makes an analogy of 10 climbers climbing Mt. Evererst and exclaiming “I did it” when reaching the top and being filled with joy. Yet reaching the top of Mt. Every was just half the journey, they still needed to get back down….

Phil Cannella says this so well: “A few years back, I watched a television documentary about Mount Everest and a group of ten men who climbed the highest mountain on Earth. After days and nights of climbing and combating high winds, frigid weather, and steep inclines, they finally reached the top of the summit. The lead climber pulled the flag out of his backpack and joyfully stuck it in the summit as all ten men jumped up and down vigorously with the joy of satisfaction and fulfillment of accomplishing this seemingly impossible feat. They all yelled, ‘We did it; we made it!’

“In the coming days only six men came down off the mountain. You see, four men perished coming down the other side. All of those brave men thought they had made it when they reached the summit, when in reality, they were only halfway there. They still had the second part of the journey to go. They never thought it would be the way down that would claim so many of their lives.”

This gives us a great analogy to retirement as Phil Cannella so aptly explains. It a journey and that journey has a course. It is no good if you travel just half the journey, you need to make it all the way around.

Phil Cannella strives to give you a plan, a guide that can take you through this journey of retirement.
