Motivational Power Quote

 

Be Green and Grow

"Life is growth.

If we stop growing,

technically and spiritually

we are as good as dead."

 Monihei Ueshiba, martial artist

   

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

Be green and grow  

When we are green we are growing.  

Like the mighty oak tree that starts's its life cycle as a small acorn. The tree takes root and through out its life continues grows.  

A mature oak tree can grow to reach 100 feet or more in height and it all started with acorn.  

Our live in many respects is like an oak tree.   

Once we take root there is a need to continue to grow and mature through out our life to reach our potential. Our growth involves our personal, our profession and our spiritual growth.   

As we grow we become a stronger person and we put down deep roots to withstand the storms in our life. The strength of our roots supports our growth and provides the fuel for our success journey.    

The person that elects not to grow has made a choice. Much like an oak tree without a strong root system they won't be able to withstand the storms in their lives.  In time they will wittier and die without ever reaching their maturity.  

Make the choice to be green and continue to grow.

Lou, you are so right! If we aren't growing, we're dying. Plant your tree (of knowledge) by the water where the roots will grow more!

Lou. so true. If you stop growing, you are 'dead' - what a thought!

The growth can be in any form - relationship, knowledge, education or spiritual - but one must GROW.

I like that Lou - be green and grow.  I have a sign hanging in my office that says, Bloom where you are planted. It's a great reminder to keep moving forward.
