Perhaps something needs to change inside to make this your year of new beginnings. Reflecting on the tree, it has to make the best of its circumstances. While it goes through seasons, change may not be visible to others. Over the years, it builds strength to stand as it grows taller and establishes deeper roots. The next time you’re thinking about making a quick move, think of the tree. Small, gradual changes may need to take place for real transformation to occur. Personal development may not always be evident to others. Maybe, just maybe, you need to grow where you’re planted. As you build a strong core, growth will occur naturally. And you’ll find the courage to branch out and embrace new beginnings.
Following dreams is like walking a tightrope. The first step is the hardest. You can’t turn back. Hope keeps you going. Faith takes you to the other side. Expect great things to happen. Walk in that belief. What once felt impossible will feel within reach. What you achieve will only go as high as what you believe. Reach for your potential.
The difference between greatness and mediocrity is quite simple. Mediocrity prompts a man to lower his standards to fit in. Greatness allows him to rise above circumstances to reach his potential.
Fill your garden with seeds of faith. Water your flowers regularly, and make room for them to grow. In the same way, make space for positivity in your life. Water your dreams daily. Watch as they begin to bloom. Consistency is key. Plant seeds. Be patient if results are slow. Give dreams time to grow.
At times life throws curveballs when we think we’re about to hit a home run. Discouragement quickly sets in. We’re tempted to step off the field, and we lose the will to try again. Everyone steps up to the plate with the hope of hitting it out of the park. Yet very few hit a home run. Some make it to third base, while even more make it to second and first. None start with a guarantee of success.
