In today's instant gratification culture it means a lot to gain some perspective from nature.
We have high speed internet. Walmart Grocery, Amazon, one day delivery services and instant streaming services like Netflix and Hulu.
It's no wonder that when we can get what we want, when we want it, that life can get complicated when this doesn't happen.
In nature, the Grand canyon wasn't formed over night. If you plant a seed it doesn't sprout into a massive tree in minutes.
These things take time. Anything that is built hastily falls quickly. Scams and pyramid schemes are prime examples.
When it comes to health, wealth and relationships, these all take time. Just like planting a tree, it takes planning, preparation, effort, following a process and more effort. Don't forget the main ingredient, time.
To plant a seed we must figure out where, what, when and how we're going to do so. Just like launching a business, starting a diet or making a friend. It takes time. It takes effort. Intention. Planning and preparation.
Every overnight success took years of preparation and work. So before we fall victim to the next get rich quick scheme, fad diet or too good to be true tinder profile, we should stop and ask ourselves: was this created hastily or was it built on years of preparation and hard work?
A tree with deep roots is hard to pull out of the ground. But a plant with shallow roots comes up with little effort.
If we start to analyze relationships, making money and our fitness journey with this in mind, we will become more efficient.
Don't give up. If we give up on our goals too early, we won't let's those strong deep roots take hold. If we're looking for success overnight, we will eventually fade. But having that persistence to continue moving forward even if we don't see results right away.
It takes faith. We can do everything right and still not see results. If we plant a seed and water it daily, we won't see green growth for quite some time. But if we have faith and follow a proven process we will certainty end up with what we planted.
It takes patience. A fruit producing tree can take years. If you're looking to build wealth, it's going to take years. The facts are most lottery winners go broke within a few years. What is quickly gather quickly fades. Having patience to get to where we want eventually is the only way to survive. The good news is when we learn to use our faith to receive patience, we win. Infinite patience brings immediate results.
Be aggressive. This might seem counterintuitive but if we don't act on an idea we become lazy. By relentlessly pursuing our dreams and goals we will be moving forward. We need patience and understanding that results won't happen over night. But also if we don't work towards our goals we'll never get any closer. This only works if we do.
If we're able to see the big picture, anything is possible. The laws of the universe say we must give something to get something. That's our time, money and effort. Using the right tools, getting the proper education or coaching can significantly reduce the time and effort needed. Either way the universe requires to receive something before we get what we want.
Just like Netflix and their instant streaming capabilities, we had to earn the money to pay for our internet, TV before we click a button and watch hours worth of entertainment instantly. We always have to give before we receive.
Serving others and having no expectations is the simplest way to get what we want. Happiness comes from helping others get what they want. We give our time and effort and receive happiness and fulfillment.
How many people are searching for happiness and fulfillment and will never get it because they are selfish rather than selfless?
It's not easy, but this is the proven process for life, health and wealth. Birds don't ask for food overnight to be delivered by Door Dash. They have faith that the trees and plants will provide food and they have the patience to get the worm. But they still have to put in the work. They are aggressive when the timing is right. Take action. Be patient. Don't give up. The early persistent bird gets the worm.
