"I can't do it," Max stated.
His companions begged him to climb the mountain with them. It was essential they all complete the task as part of their team building score.
"I'm against mountain climbing,' Max stated again.
As a result Max's team placed last in the competition.
Now his team all calls him "Anti-climb-Max."
Moral of the story: Any obstacle is more easily overcome if you're part of a team. Have an "I can" rather than an "I can't' attitude and you'll be climbing up the corporate ladder faster than you think!
"After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb."
