Step by step I made my way up the latter. Every step I took, I got more and more nervous, but also more and more determined. About half way up the tree, the latter changes into small metal pegs that were pretty challenging to climb. I listened to the many friends saying you can do it, and encouraging me to keep going. Although their happy encouragement was helpful, it was my best friends who gave the "stupid" encouragement that helped the most. I do not believe they knew this, but as they screamed, "Don't splat," "There is a man eating bird on the top of the tree," "Lucas, why is the tree shaking so much?" or "It is a long way down, so don't fall," they pushed me further along and eventually, after what felt like climb to the top of Mount Everest, I made it. I was satisfied with myself for taking the challenge and even climbing the They strapped my harness in, and I jumped. As the zipline crashed into the water I saw my best friends cheering and I felt a giant relief, but also something new. I realized I wanted to do it again. With all the "stupid" encouragement that my friends gave me, they helped me conquer one of my biggest fears, heights, and they also helped me enjoy the reward of the heights.
I realized that with determination and a little help from your friends, any challenge is manageable.
