Wow, What If I Had Given Up
A few months ago, I had written about Spring, and how nature’s beauty continues to shine as different flowers and trees blossom at different times. I posted a picture showing when everything else around it was turning color, there was one tree in the middle of the picture that appeared dormant, or possibly even dead. If you didn’t get a chance to read that post, you can find it here:
What if I had given up on that tree? What if I had cut it down thinking that it was simply in the way of all the other beautiful trees around it? If I had done that, I would have missed this:
I would have missed one of the most beautiful trees in the yard and its beautiful display of fernlike, feathery leaves, and striking, bright pink flowers.
If I would have given up on it, I would have cut it down before its prime, never giving it a chance to fully grow, and never giving it a chance to show the world how beautiful it really is.
There are many people in here that are just like this tree. When it seems that everyone else around them is blossoming, increasing traffic on their websites and making sales, they feel that their efforts aren’t enough to keep up. They may feel like a failure surrounded by winners.
If you are one who feels this way, just look at this tree. Take a look at how it was a few months ago, and look back to how it looks today.
It’s beautiful, it’s thriving, it’s bringing color to the scenery when all else is green.
As long as you don’t give up, you too will get there. And as long as you don’t give up, you too will end up just as beautiful, and just as successful, as those who are already there, if not even more so.
I know there are a lot of other posts on here telling you to stick with it, and don’t give up, but I’m hoping by showing you the results you can see what would be lost if you quit now.
You may take a little longer, you may seem dormant to some. But as long as you stick with it, and don’t give up, you can come out shining brighter and even more beautiful that someone who is already a success in your eyes.
No matter how long it takes, no matter how many obstacles seem to be in your way, no matter how high that mountain seems, take one step at a time. Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up, and the rewards will be amazing!
