Parable of The Chinese Bamboo Tree

If you prematurely stop working on something, don't say right away that it didn't work. It's possible it just didn't work in the timeframe you had in mind or maybe you weren't doing it right.

The Chinese Bamboo Tree IS NOT A TRUE STORY. It's more of a parable than anything else.  But there is a valuable lesson in it.

Faith and perseverance is imporant but when something is not working, we need to evaluate and see if what we are doing needs to change in some way. We can't keep doing the same things and expect different results. However, if you know what you are doing is the right thing (like watering and fertilizing the seed in this story), then yes, stick to it and stay confident that the results will come. It's up to YOU to decide how long you want to wait for the results.  People who do not understand what you are doing and are not at the place where you want to be in life will tell you it's 'not working' and to give up.
 

Instant gratification cannot be attained in everything we do. 

 

Whatever you decide to do in business or personally, you need to have the end-game in mind and have an idea when you should be achieving your goals. Set some mini-goals and milestones where you can look back and check your progress. If you prematurely stop working on something, don't say right away that it didn't work. It's possible it just didn't work in the timeframe you had in mind or maybe you weren't doing it right.  Of course, time is limited and we want and need to see results.  It's ok to move on to something else. Just make sure you are not spending too much time trying new things all the time just because you don't see instant results. You might be the one that needs to change your mindset to get things working for you.
