    Over every mountain there is a path, yet you can't see it from a valley!

    "Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley." —Theodore Roethke

    We should move with positive attitude and hope. In difficult times, we lose all hopes and fail to enjoy our surroundings just thinking about the surrounding mountains while standing at the point of the valley. The above quote by Roethke has immense meaning in it. What do you say?

    It is correct. You need to explore and then only you will be able to discover the path. A positive mindset will give you hope and energy to explore further. Heroes do rise during turbulent times only. Think of a cricket match where your favourite team is playing poorly. They are almost on the verge of a defeat. Then comes the heroic performance of a particular player and your favourite team wins. Losing hope and not trying further indicates something is pulling you back and that is the negative energy. Whatever may be the situation, one needs to find a way to come out of it and the way is found only when one thinks in a positive way.

    The words in the title brought to mind the childhood ditty about the bear going over the mountain and all that he saw on the other side was the other side of the mountain. In a sense though, the bear would be taking a path even up and over that mountain as well.

    So yes, there may be a path somewhere towards our goal of moving onward and upward. What is important is that in order to find it, we need to focus on our approach and not meander here and there in the valley.

    Absolutely Right ----- Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley.
    One can live a happy life and get success if has a Positive Attitude.

    Life is like an everlasting flow, where sorrows also come in the midst of lots of happiness. After a lot of happiness, sadness comes just as well and this cycle starts again. This is a never-ending cycle.

    The circumstances of life are based on past actions, so it is not possible to escape from a negative situation, but by protecting yourself from this situation with the help of emotional and spiritual support, this negativity can be converted into positivity.

    Do you need a true way out of this dreaded ups and downs cycle? Positive attitude, this is the key!

    Only positive thinking can give us happiness in this world, whereas negative thinking not only gives sorrow but also completely ruins it.
    Our every thought sows the seeds of the future, so why don't we keep positive thinking to get sweet fruits like that? If we remain positive in a difficult moment, it also makes the painful situation comfortable.
    When our mind is positive, then we will experience divinity because positivity is a sign of cleanness, and cleanness of mind is the ultimate happiness.

    Thank you....

    A well motivating quote by Roethke that gives a ray of hope to all that reads the quote and are going through tough times. In life, when we are surrounded by pain, misery, sadness and difficulty as this time of the pandemic, we all feel low, let-down and even curse for things that happen to us and forget to focus on other things. As said that there is a path on every mountain which is not visible from the valley but as one try to explore, you find a path that takes you to the top. In the same way, when we are surrounded by problems and stress, we lose our focus and approach and are not able to find or see the path in front of us. If we can give it a try and find ways to mend it, we will be able to find our ways through it and come out shining. All that we need is faith in God, trust in ourself and ability to face the challenging situation with good support of our loved ones that is the fuel to get through the difficult times and find the path on the mountain that is not seen from the valley.

    Your goal may be very big. But there will be a way to achieve that. But never get into negative thoughts. If you go down the valley you can't even see the hill some times. Negative thoughts will make you feel that destination is very far and we feel it is very difficult to reach the destination. But no problem will be there without a solution. No lock is made without a key. Be positive and try to solve them as wisely as possible.
    In Mahabharata Yuddham, Lord Krishna never allowed Pandavas to get into negative thoughts. He was always trying to infuse confidence and positivity in them and guided them to victory.

    always confident

    Over every mountain there is a path.. lets analyse it in various ways. Here mountain can be taken as the task, and the path referred as the way of approach. Those who cannot risk would go for small mountain and attain the success but there are only few who want to climb the Everest and touch the zenith of the success. And the path is hidden and not drawn to be known clearly with the naked eyes. That means you have to create your own way of approach not withstanding the good and worse conditions on the way. Again one should have in depth knowledge of varied challenges before attempting,
