Καλημέρα σε ολους!

Ποιος θα ήταν ο καλύτερος τρόπος να πούμε «Προχώρα μπροστά. Κατάκτησε την κορυφή».

Ή ακόμα «Προχώρα μπροστά και η κορυφή είναι δική σου».

Με την μεταφορική εννοια του όρου πάντα.

I don't think we have exactly that expression in English.  A suggestion:  "Climb every mountain higher;  reach for the stars." ()
