Spread Your Wings

Motivational Power Quote

 

Spread Your Wings

 

"There is nothing in a caterpillar

that tells you

it' going to be a butterfly."

Buckminster Fuller, American architect, author, futurist, visionary

  

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Spread your wings. 

When you see a caterpillar you don't see a butterfly. You see a bug that moves very slowly and can't off the ground.  It's not until the caterpillar spins their cocoon do they emerge as a butterfly and spread their winds. 

We are like the butterfly, it not until we spin a cocoon of commitment to change will we be able to emerge as a butterfly and spread our wings; that will lift us to new heights of success and fulfillment.    

Spread your wings.

That is a pretty awesome quote.

I really like your explanation of this, "until we spin a cocoon of commitment to change will we be able to emerge as a butterfly and spread our wings".

Lou,

Sometimes I have noticed that this process does involve a little bit of pain which just makes the process a little sweeter!

My wings are spread so wide I should be in lift-off mode.  On that note here's a tune from the past with an interesting video ~ ENJOY
