Advice from a tree
--by ilan shamir
stand tall and proud
sink your roots deeply into the earth
reflect the light of a greater source
think long term
go out on a limb
remember your place among all living beings
embrace with joy the changing seasons
for each yields its own abundance
the energy and birth of spring
the growth and contentment of summer
the wisdom to let go of leaves in the fall
the rest and quiet renewal of winter
feel the wind and the sun
and delight in their presence
look up at the moon that shines down upon you
and the mystery of the stars at night.
seek nourishment from the good things in life
earth, fresh air, light
be content with your natural beauty
drink plenty of water
let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
remember your roots
enjoy the view! 💞🙏
I’ve become quite the fan of self development over the past 18 months as i’ve grown my business 💼 i often read books from young entrepreneurs to improve my mindset and attitude towards business and growth.
quite recently i’ve learnt so much about the importance of failures and life lessons. it’s so easy to throw in the towel when times get tough, when life throws you a curve ball or something you see as a great idea has to be developed in someone else’s eyes🔮
i mean can you believe that j.k rowling had 12 rejections on the original harry potter 📜manuscript from publishing houses before bloomsbury picked it up?
blockbuster also passed up the opportunity to buy netflix for $50mil because they didn’t understand the business model📚
both of these concepts have been “too different” from traditional thinking and business structure, and now both have billion dollar worth!💸 if you had of told me 18 months ago that i’d be working full time from the beach 💦on social media i would have laughed in your face. i had entrenched this belief in myself where i truely believed that the only way i was to be successful in this life would be to work as a lawyer after completing my degree. boy was i the blockbuster in this situation!👩🏼⚖️🙈 working online is the business of the 21st century, and statistics are showing that if you aren’t doing it now, you will be in the next 5-10 years🤳🏼. after all, 82% of women earning over $150k per year do so through out business model.
take a step out of your comfort zone and see what lies at the edge of your normal.
