So started off the morning listening to Les Brown and other motivational speakers like I normally do. Heard Les Brown talk about the Chinese Bamboo tree and how it takes 5 years of watering before he grows out of the ground. 5 years? Yes 5 years. Crazy, how dumb you look watering a ground with nothing or nobody there. But that also shows the power and persistence of patience and how you can achieve and do anything. When people doubt you, or you doubt yourself in spite of remember the chinese bamboo tree who takes five years to sprout. I guess this also says alot about our culture in general if that tree was sold at tree shops and that was one of the exclusive products the shop would probably be out of business pretty fast. So once again remember the chinese bamboo tree when you feel like giving up or giving in.
