“Maybe you are searching among the branches for what only appears in the roots.”
What are you looking for? Are you getting it?
Success won’t come from the next latest or greatest thing, a better this, or a better that, a more this, or a more that. Sure you might see a temporary change for a short time but nothing more.
Instead, ask yourself…
“Why is it that I can’t complete what I start?”
“Why can’t I execute?”
“Why can’t I follow through and just get it done?”
You know it would change your life for the better…so why?
“Why do I insist on doing the same things over and over again even though it doesn’t bring me the results I want?”
Make a change.
Believe it or not (have an open mind), try forgiving those who have hurt you, that have trespassed over you, that have sinned against you. Until you forgive others you won’t forgive yourself (for your past sins, trespasses or failures). You won’t stop sabotaging your own success.
Get passed the failure, the bad upbringing, the resentment, and don’t be the victim. Stop reacting to people. Those who cut you off while driving. Those who don’t say thank you. Those you are tempted to judge.
Start thinking more about how you make others feel versus your own needs.
Being consumed with your own worries and needs repels others. Instead notice people. Really notice people. Look into their eyes and see their soul. Acknowledge their existence then smile. Breed loyalty. Stop chasing your tail. Stop trying to capture the wind.
Be a light, a bright light, the brightest light. Start seeing through new eyes and watch new responses and results come your way. Create a new energy, a new you. Demonstrate your gratefulness. Ask more questions and really stop and listen. Care more.
Others will come. Customers will come. Great employees will come. Your community will grow. You will grow. Your business will grow. Your life will grow.
Stop searching among the branches for what only appears in the roots.
