Rose Bush or Oak Tree

Rose Bush or Oak Tree

Whatever you’re going after, it will most likely take at least twice
the time you imagine; and cost at least twice as much. Get busy.

I coach so many people today looking for fast fame, instant gratification, simple success, and the secret sauce.

Good luck with that one.

One of the 7 Hermetic Laws of the Universe is called “The Law of Gender.” (LOG)

The LOG tells us many important things, but one vital point for the secret sauce chaser is that everything that manifests in the physical universe has a gestation or incubation period.

A carrot seed takes about 7 weeks before it breaks through the earth. A baby gestates for 9 months prior to exiting mothers’ womb.

What are you going after in your life and business?

What are your expectations?

READ HERE: Expect the best; and realize, sometimes what you perceive to be “the worst” is actually the best.

How long does it take to manifest your dreams and intentions?

I don’t know.

But what I do know, is that it takes a lot longer to manifest a mighty oak tree then it takes to manifest a willow.

If you’re going after big dreams and intentions, you must stay the course.
It takes much longer to manifest a mighty oak tree
than it takes to grow a willow.

Please, let’s get real.

A rose bush produces a rose bud in about 8 weeks, while an oak tree is 30 years old before it produces its first acorn.

Most people think they want rose bush results.

Not so fast.

A rose bush, while beautiful, lives and produces only about 35 years. Conversely, an oak tree lives and produces up to 600 years!

A rose bush can produce a rose bud in about 8 weeks, while an
oak tree is 30 years old  before it produces its first acorn.
You want rose bush results? Not so fast.  A rose bush lives
for 35 years and an oak tree produces for 600 years!

Maybe it’s time you get a reality check.

Anything that’s easy to achieve will be hard to keep. Fast flames burn out fast.

Like it or not speedy success is a curse. Because it doesn’t give you the time to mature, it doesn’t give the opportunity to face challenges, to strengthen resilience and resolve. It’s a fact, we grow the most in the crucible of challenge.

The difference between the master and the beginner is the master
has the ability to stand in the face of no results for longer.
