For some reason, I only have one or two roses that bloom every year at the same spot but I don’t know why. Happy to hear ideas from avid gardeners out there. My post however is thankfully not about my abysmal gardening skills.
It took about four to five days after the bud of the rose above appeared for it to be in full bloom.
Really beautiful 😍😍😍😍 but it got me thinking about success. .
It only took a maximum of five days for this gorgeous rose to be in full bloom but how long has it been taking root? How long has the work that goes on beneath the surface been going on?
We all know there is no such thing as an overnight success but we sure wish in our case we would be the exception qualified for meteoric progression. Well I don’t know about you but I often find myself thinking where is the shortcut to the finish line.
Meteoric successes are an anomaly. Right now I can’t even think of one person who was an overnight success for often what we perceive to be sudden has been years in the making.
True success that lasts, whether it’s relationships, business, career, whatever – true success that lasts is line upon line, brick upon brick. It’s in the daily activities we do that further our goals.
You may feel like you are working very hard and you can’t see the blooming rose ( pun intended 😂😂).
Don’t give up. You are just taking root. As long as you have a clear vision, a plan to get you there and you are taking action consistently; you will bloom.
The truth is that the rose is the most beautiful part, the glory of the story. However, if it didn’t have a root, it would never appear.
So here’s to taking root.
