A lesson in patience
A lesson in perseverance
A lesson in commitment
I don’t know if you’ve heard this story about the Chinese Bamboo Tree before, but this is one of those lessons that really sticks with you.
The Chinese Bamboo Tree teaches us success lessons on patience, faith, perseverance, growth & development and most surprising of all… human potential!
Like any plant, the growth of the Chinese Bamboo Tree requires nurturing – water, fertile soil, sunshine. In its first year, we see no visible signs of activity. In the second year, again, no growth above the soil. The third, the fourth, still nothing.
Our patience is tested and we begin to wonder if our efforts (caring, water, etc.) will ever be rewarded. And finally in the fifth year – behold, a miracle!
We experience growth. And what growth it is! The Chinese Bamboo Tree grows 80 feet in just six weeks!
The Chinese Bamboo Tree is a great reminder of what a great Personal Brand is like…
Initially you may not see results… depending on each person it may take longer for some…
So many see my results and want to be where I am.
I get it!
For years I saw people who were making the money I am now and living the life I live now and I WANTED IT TOO.
I kept my vision and focus on my goals.
I was willing to keep going UNTIL.
I changed and pivoted to get to my goal because my first initial company was not in alignment with the goals I had of where I was headed.
I didn’t turn my GPS off I set a new route to get to the destination.
I have been consistent and committed to myself and my business for 7 years now.
I have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars investing in ME.
I have spent hundreds of hours investing in my skillset.
I have done things most are not willing to do like believe in themselves.
Like walk away from a company I built for 4 years and a 6 figure income to match.
Like invest when I had no money.
Do the deep healing when it was confronting AF
Now everyone sees me as the overnight success in my current business because well I created massive results in a very short amount of time.
I literally started and hit momentum right away like instantly from week 1 and it hasn’t slowed down since.
It’s actually just hit a new level of momentum that is indescribable with the launch of our proven blueprint of business education.
But I am the bamboo…….
I was doing the work when you didn’t see me doing the work.
Laying solid foundations and being consistent in the commitment to my vision.
So I want you to remember that comparing where you’re starting to where I am today is not serving you.
Don’t be upset with the results you didn’t get from the work you haven’t done.
Don’t expect to get my results unless you are prepared to do what I have done.
As long as you keep building momentum you will succeed and generate 6 or 7-figures with a soulful AF world class personal brand and business.
You just need to respect the process, be patient, and find the right community and vehicle so you can create your success.
But seriously get real with yourself and have an honest conversation about what you have really invested into achieving the dream…….
What are you willing to invest and are you actually ready to be making the kind of money you desire……
Most are not and that’s ok but you need to be willing to take radical self responsibility for that.
I did 3 things to go from growing underground laying foundations to shooting to the stars in 18 months.
I took radical self responsibility for where I was and owned what I wanted to create. Clarity is key
I found a high ticket offer that leveraged automation so I made huge commissions in half the amount of time. Your numbers need to make business sense
I got into action and let go of all the excuses and reasons why I couldn’t while also dodging abuse and others negative opinions. Laser focus and intentional action is vital
If you’re curious about how to make this happen and are looking for a leaders and a community who has done to mentor you in activating your vision, to push you out of the ground and help you rise to new heights, then The Freedom Era is for you.
We have the way, the vehicle and the vision so all you need is the desire and commitment.
Boom… so much respect for what you have created for yourself and others… I am the bamboo tree because I was the queen of making excuses. Since being part of this platform my whole life started to change. I needed to do a whole lotta work, but without being in this community I wouldn’t have known how to water my bamboo tree (read: my desire and commitment)
I love this… comparison really is the thief of all joy like they say. Congratulations on an epic journey and love that we get to utilise the training to make our trip a little smoother.
This is just what I needed to read today, of course! I know that I am laying strong foundations atm but still get frustrated when there’s no external reward. I know in my heart, purpose and being that it is 💯 worth it and I will reach my goal. Thanks for sharing Rebecca 🧡
This is incredible! What a wake up call to so many that will be reading this.
People sometimes see the glory but not the story!
The power of consistency and never losing sight of that vision 👌🏽🙏
I didn’t even know I could be a bamboo tree until I joined the Freedom Era. I have a lot o work to do but am sure in the end it will all be worth it.
I love this. Thank you Rebekah. Exactly what I need to hear today ❤️❤️
