Mountain climbing is not a hobby many people take on. Sure, we’ve all gone for a hike or followed a trail up to a waterfall, but real mountain climbing is a completely different story. It requires years of practice, thousands of dollars worth of equipment, and nerves of steel.
Among the famous peaks that climbers attempt to scale, Mount Everest is considered the crown jewel. Set between Nepal and Tibet, the summit is the highest point on earth. Among the dangers of conquering this giant are altitude sickness, inclement weather, and avalanches.
The first known attempt to scale Mount Everest was made a hundred years ago in 1921. Since that time, more than 300 adventures have perished attempting to reach the top. Most of these occurred in the death zone, which is the name used for high altitude areas where there is not enough oxygen for humans to breathe. Due to the difficult terrain, many of the bodies of the deceased remain on the mountain, making it a rocky graveyard.
While opinions on climbing techniques differ, one thing that experts and seasoned climbers alike agree on is that you should never climb alone. While performing such a difficult feat, it is always better to have someone there to watch your back or give you a hand up.
There are many aspects of life where getting to the summit requires relying on others. Your career is no different. You can only make it so far without assistance. The phrase “It’s not what you know, but who you know,” comes to mind. You could be the best candidate on the market, but without the right network, it might be impossible to ascend to the next level.
