The Chinese bamboo tree... It takes 5 years for the seed to break ground. It has to be watered, fertilized and nurtured every single day. If it isn't watered and nourished every day it will die that day.
On the 5th year when the roots break through the ground it grows 90 feet in 6 weeks.
Now the question is; did it take 5 years to grow 90 feet or 6 weeks to grow 90 feet?
The obvious is it took 5 years.
It took 5 years to develop the foundation, it took 5 years to earn its reputation, it took 5 years to learn people, it took 5 years to learn itself, it took 5 years to learn the system, it took 5 years to learn the skills to develop. IT TOOK 5 YEARS TO FIGURE IT OUT.
That's why you have to be PATIENT, and ENGAGE in consistent/continuous action.
We live in a society where people settle for whatever gives them instant gratification. You want what people around you have but aren't willing to put in the time and pay the price others did.
It's not easy......it's simple, but not easy. Follow the system, don't deviate your course. See the long term vision you have your eye on and write down 10 reasons WHY you want that.
You are the determining factor. Make no mistake about it, ITS HARD.
BUT ITS WORTH IT.
