Years ago I heard this story of how this tree grows, it is a great story of how life works some times. So no matter how bad it is right now , have hope in a better tomorrow. Read this today and come back for more about hope tomorrow.


The Chinese Bamboo tree story:


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 fertilise it, and nothing happens

The third year you water it and fertilise it, and nothing happens. How discouraging this becomes!

The fourth year you water it and fertilise it, and nothing happens. This is very frustating

The fifth year you continue to water and fertilize the seed and then…in a matter of a six week period the tree will grow  ninety feet tall.

In your life you are going to have some challenging times. you will plant a seed and hope a business will grow, you will hope your relationship will grow, you will hope your kids will grow up.

But like this tree it will take lots of water and lots of care with seeing no results, then one day you wake up and watch growth after growth after growth.

Are you waiting for that day now? If it is not hear I can tell you one thing. If you stop watering your seed, or at any time pull if from the ground and decide to give up on it, the growth with stop.

Never give up hope on those things that take time. Discouragement is not an option if you are growing. keep watering and you will see things happen, and the rewards will come.

      There is so much out there claiming to give instant results. This story is so true. Three is no magic growth pill.
