True success happens from the inside out

The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight. But while their companions slept, they toiled ever upward through the night. – Henry Longfellow 

Do you sometimes feel like you’re running fast but going nowhere? The daily grind and pursuit of my goals sometimes leaves me feeling frustrated because I seem so busy but have little to show for it. Thanks to a loving sister, coach and mentor – I am continuously reminded to stop being so hard on myself and focus on my (seemingly small yet anything but) achievements.

Consider this suggestion from Christine Kane (a Mentor to People Who are Changing the World . She helps women and men Uplevel their lives, businesses and their success) 

If you not getting results, it doesn’t mean that you should go “out there” and try more, work more or get more. It means that you’re being called.

  • You’re being called to go within.
  • You’re being called to release the barriers.
  • You’re being called to manage your own power.

The Chinese bamboo is planted and nurtured for the first four years and does not outwardly develop even just for an inch. And then on the fifth year, all the hard work seems to suddenly pay off as it shoots up to more than 80 feet all in just one growing season! Was the tree inactive for four years and then just decide to grow dramatically on the fifth? It was actually developing itself underground by expanding its root system to make it tough enough to sustain its impending external growth in the fifth year and even beyond. Because true success happens from the inside out.

Yours in patience


Live, love, learn & leave a lasting legacy!
