This is the story of Chinese Bamboo.
Like any plant, growth of the Chinese Bamboo Tree requires nurturing – water, fertile soil, sunshine.
If you didn’t know any better… you’d likely give up on the plant long before you see any results…
You see, in its first year, you won’t see any signs of growth.
In the second year, again, nothing.
The third, the fourth, still no visible signs of growth.
Your patience is tested and you may begin to wonder if your efforts – caring, watering, long hours tending – will ever be rewarded.
Finally in the fifth year – a miracle!
We see the growth… what growth it is! The Chinese Bamboo Tree grows 80 feet in just six weeks!
But let’s be serious, does the Chinese Bamboo Tree really grow 80 feet in six weeks?
Did the Chinese Bamboo Tree lie dormant for four years only to grow exponentially in the fifth? Or, was the little tree growing underground, developing a root system strong enough to support its potential growth in the future?
If the bamboo tree had not developed a strong (unseen) foundation it could not have sustained its life as it grew.
The same principle is true for you.
You, who is patiently toiling towards your dreams and goals. You are building strong character while overcoming adversity and challenge. You are growing the strong internal foundation to handle your dream life.
Now it’s time to find the right system and guidance so that you too can flourish.
You’ve been building your foundation, you’ve been growing and learning along the way… But if you haven’t seen the results you truly desire, it’s because you gave up too soon.
You can’t jump to the top of the mountain but you can get there more quickly with the right map.
