#TheMemo-4 to my best friend Kate

1-Good day to you Kate, dearest of friends. I hope you’re making the best of all the festivities. As you might have guessed #TheMemo

2-Yes I’m also in that thanksgiving mood but most importantly its also a period of candid, truthful and respectful self appraisal #TheMemo

3-I mean a period where I get to assess the almost concluded year to see what I did, what I didn’t do, didn’t do right #TheMemo

4-wasn’t supposed to do and see how much I aligned with Gods divine purpose for my life. #TheMemo

5-Away from that, I want to share something amazing with you about the wonder of nature #TheMemo

6a-Its about one very amazing tree that gives us a platform for how to work towards success everyday #TheMemo

6b-how also to be resilient in the face of obstacles that we might face. #TheMemo

6c-It teaches us success lessons on patience, faith, perseverance, growth and development. #TheMemo

7-THE CHINESE BAMBOO TREE. Yes this tree is exceptional and has some dynamics of Gods unique creative skills in it. #TheMemo

8-Like all other plants, this tree needs to be nurtured- water, fertile ground, sunshine. #TheMemo

9a-The strange part is that for 4 straight yrs, no noticeable activity is seen I mean the ground on which it is planted is totally bare #TheMemo

9b-with nothing showing for all the hard work of trying to nurturing it. #TheMemo

10-The patience of the planter is tested, I mean seriously he begins to wonder if all d work will ever be fruitful. #TheMemo

11-But at the fifth year, something amazing happens. It will happen in your life in 2014, someone say AMEN. #TheMemo

12-The tree sprouts and within 5 wks this tree grows up to 80fts. Can you imagine that 80 GOOD fts. #TheMemo

13-But let’s be serious, Did the Chinese Bamboo Tree lie dormant for 4 years only to grow exponentially in the 5th?#TheMemo

14-Or, was the tree growing underground, developing a root system #TheMemo

14b-strong enough to support its potential for outward growth in the 5th year and beyond? The answer is, of course, obvious.

15-Had the tree not developed a strong unseen foundation it could not have sustained its life as it grew. #TheMemo

16-Now bringing the story of this phenomenally unique tree back to the every day travails of man. #TheMemo

17-This tree is a perfect parable to our experience with personal growth, success and career. #TheMemo

18- it can be sometimes slow at other times frustrating and so many other times its just never easy and unrewarding. #TheMemo

19-But it is so worth it….especially if we can be patient and persistent. #TheMemo

20-Can we stay focused and continue to believe in what we are doing even when we don’t see immediate results?

21-In a culture driven by instant gratification – this is our biggest challenge. #TheMemo

22-Therefore, within days or weeks of the initial planting, we become discouraged and begin to second guess ourselves, or worse, quit. #TheMemo

23-Sometimes, in our doubt, we dig up our seed and plant it elsewhere, in hopes that it will quickly rise in more fertile ground. #TheMemo

24-This is the hard part for most of us. We get so excited about the idea that’s been planted inside of us #TheMemo

24b- so much so that we simply can’t wait for it to blossom. In anxiety and rush. #TheMemo

25-We surely have plans and aspirations for d nw season and so many things to accomplish. #TheMemo

26-The unique journey of purpose is a very long one and to stay focused there are few basic things I’ll like to share. #TheMemo

27-My only message for u is that when the going gets tough you need not lower ur standards or change ur goals for the year #TheMemo

27b-When it seems like your hard, fervent and dedicated work is not paying off or the patience is burning out. #TheMemo

28-just believe, work and continue in that purposeful work and vision u have started, its essential to climb up in life. #TheMemo

29-Don’t get discouraged, u av a chinese bamboo tree inside of u waiting to erupt for the world to c in d new year. #TheMemo

30- the words are POSITIONING AND PERSISTENCY i.e knowing the right place to be at the right time with unwavering dedication #TheMemo

31-If you allow yourself to be distracted, then d tree would not become. #TheMemo

32-Don’t forget that “when its obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” #TheMemo

33-I wish you a great purposeful and vision finding»attaining 2014. God bless you. #TheMemo

34- till I write you again from the second week of January 2014 keep living on purpose with the divine vision for your life. #TheMemo

Happy new Year family.

…helping you become.
