Message #56 The Bamboo Tree

This message is especially dedicated to the great Phoebe Lin and Nikita Janodia.

In yesterday’s message, I said that everything you need to succeed is already inside you. Here is another way of looking at it…

When you plant a bamboo tree, for the first year, nothing happens. In the second year, nothing happens. In the third and fourth years, again, nothing happens. But then, in the fifth year, the bamboo tree grows 50 feet in 6 weeks!

So the debate is, did the bamboo tree grow 50 feet in 6 weeks, or 5 years and 6 weeks?

The answer is 5 YEARS and 6 weeks. So what does that have to do with you? All of you are germinating right now…you are doing things today that will become great tomorrow. Work hard (smart), enjoy the process, and know that it will all pay off in the future.

Thanks for reading.

Homework: Think about what you really want to accomplish in life and start germinating!
