Chinese Bamboo Tree

Love this story about the, “Chinese Bamboo Tree”

I like the story of the Chinese bamboo tree: You take a little seed, plant it, water it,

and fertilize it for a whole year, and nothing happens.

The second year you water it and fertilize it, and nothing happens.

The third year you water it and fertilize it, and nothing happens.

How discouraging this becomes!

The fifth year you continue to water and fertilize the seed and then—take note.

Sometime during the fifth year, the Chinese bamboo tree sprouts


The Bamboo Tree

Life is much akin to the growing process of the Chinese bamboo tree.

It is often discouraging. We seemingly do things right, and nothing happens

But for those who do things right and are not discouraged

and are persistent, things will happen. Finally we begin to receive the rewards.

I am now receiving the rewards of seeds that were planted 5 years ago

You are as well. Are you getting the results you want?

If not, begin today to sow the seeds of what you want 5 years from now.

Remember, if you keep doing what you’ve always done,

you’ll get the results you’ve always gotten.
