Chinese Bamboo Tree as a Way of Success In Your Life

Once upon a time , One man tried to plant a bamboo tree so he bought a little seed, plants it, waters it and fertilises it for a whole year, and nothing happened. The second year, he waters it and fertilises it and nothing happened. The third year he waters it and fertilises it, and nothing happened. How discouraging this becomes!The fifth year you continue to water and fertilise the seed and then .......sometime during the fifth year, the Chinese bamboo tree sprout and grow EIGHTY FEET IN SIX WEEKS!

Does the Chinese Bamboo Tree really grow 80 feet in six weeks?

Did the Chinese Bamboo Tree lie dormant for four years only to grow exponentially in the fifth?

Life is similar to this metaphor of 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.

The key main lessons from the Chinese bamboo tree are :

  1. It all starts with a solid root system
  2. It takes small actions every day 
  3. It takes persistence, patience and faith

The way forward to implement these lessons in your own life. To implement the lessons the Chinese bamboo illustrates about long-term success in your own life, start working on these aspects today : 

  1. Build a solid foundation to stand on (your character, values and attitude). Ask yourself – what is one thing I can do today that will help me to improve my attitude toward work, people, life? 
  2. Remember, it takes small actions every day to make a big difference in the long run. Ask yourself – what one tiny thing can I do today that will move me closer to this specific goal? 
  3. It takes persistence. Don’t give up. Keep going. Even if all you can do is just 5 minutes a day, do it. Continuous progress is more important along the way than doing it perfectly.
