The Chinese Bamboo Tree teaches us success lessons on patience, faith, perseverance, growth & development and most surprising of all… human potential! Like any plant, the growth of the Chinese Bamboo Tree requires nurturing – water, fertile soil, sunshine. In its first year, we see no visible signs of activity. In the second year, again, no growth above the soil. The third, the fourth, still nothing.
Our patience is tested and we begin to wonder if our efforts (caring, water, etc.) will ever be rewarded. And finally in the fifth year – behold, a miracle! We experience growth. And what growth it is! The Chinese Bamboo Tree grows 80 feet in just six weeks!
The Chinese Bamboo Tree is a great reminder of what a great Personal Brand (marketing yourself or what you represent) is like. Initially you may not see results… depending on each person, it may take longer for some…
As long as you keep building momentum you will succeed. You just need to respect the process, be patient, and find mentors who have done it already.
