There are seven things I want to suggest you can possibly do to your mountains:

1. Cast It Into The Sea.
“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” (Mark 11:23)

Remove your mountain completely, if it can be done. If it’s a financial debacle, can a gift or a loan remove it? Raise the money. Plus, you can move mountains (of whatever kind) by the power of faith through prayer, and fasting if need be.

2. Level It Into A Plain
“Who art thou, O great mountain? Before Zerubabbel thou shalt become a plain…” (Zechariah 4:7) For “every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight and the rough places plain.” (Isaiah 40:4)

You can reduce the effect your predicament has on you. Choose to be better not bitter, allowing your mountain to make not mar you. For instance, positive association can minimize the negative affect (limitation) of lack of education. He that walks with wise men shall be wise. (Proverbs 13:20)

3. Find A Way Up Your Mountain
You can climb over your mountain. It may be tortuous or arduous but it is possible.

4. Find A Way Around It
There is a way your mountain could be bypassed or avoided. It may be longer but it sure is a solution.

5. Burrow A Tunnel Through It!
The way out is going through! Endure it till you come out triumphantly. Don’t back off your dream because of a supposed mountain. DON’T SURRENDER LEADERSHIP TO YOUR MOUNTAIN. The shoe doesn’t tell the foot how big it should grow! You are tougher than your tough times.

6. Stay Put and Dig It Into A Mine!
If you will explore it, I believe there is a possibility hidden away in your problem. There is a message in your mess! You can market your disadvantages. If it’s a disability, discover the ABILITY in it.

That’s what Helen Keller did. Though blind, deaf and dumb from 19 months old, she yet impacted her generation. There are albinos who despite negative societal perceptions became successful in their different chosen careers? And there are dwarves who that’s their unique advantage in the film industry. You can mine your problems. And if all these fails,

7. Fence Your Mountain and Turn It Into A Tourist Attraction
You might make money from it. When life throws you a lemon, make lemonade out of it.
