Have you heard of the Bamboo Story.
The story goes like this......
You take a little seed. You plant it, you water it , you fertilise it.
After a whole year nothing happens.
The second year you water it and fertilize it, and nothing happens.
The third year you water it and fertilize it, and still nothing happens. How discouraging this becomes!
By this stage you haven’t even seen a twig , bud , or anything.
Certainly by now it would be much easier to have given up. But somewhere deep down inside a little voice tells you to keep nurturing the plant.
It's well into the fifth year now and you still continue to keep watering and fertilising the seed without giving up.
But lo and behold after the fifth year, the Chinese bamboo tree sprouts and grows NINETY FEET IN SIX WEEKS!
Life is very much like the growing process of the Chinese bamboo tree.
Quite often life is discouraging. And when it seems all is lost we become overcome with fear which leads to that one dreaded word “Give up”.
Worse still.... it becomes more disheartening when you do everything right and watch others succeed with less talent or knowledge.
The true sign of resilience is to look beyond where you are now.
And keep growing your crop.
Whether it's 1 ... 2 ... years or 3 years down the track
Simple fact.... we all like different results with the same effort but TRUE success takes hard work & great attention to detail.
Why am I recounting the Bamboo story?
Because it's taken me about 2 years to see just tiny results from my efforts.
There were times I couldn't visualise any progress. But I kept going.
I know it's not easy.
But deep down inside I believe you too can achieve the same.
And when you do enough of it everyday rewards will await you.
1% at a time.
you sprout up like a Bamboo TREE!
