Wrapping It Up

Have you ever looked at a tree and wondered how exactly it came to be? How a seemingly small item we could hold in our bare palms can grow into a majestic tree.

We can equate this in life as well- the tree here being our goals (business, career, or relationship), the seed being the first step you take towards the goal you want to achieve. You’ll never know what the tree would look like if you don’t put in the effort of planting the seed.

So think of the seeds you want to grow right at this moment and ask yourself if you could plant these right away. Because the sooner you plant these seeds, the sooner you give them water and care for them, the faster they will grow and blossom into the most beautiful tree!
