Grow your roots

Updated: Dec 13, 2020

I was having a coaching session with a client and we were talking about the growth within her business and how it was just really slow. She was just really frustrated. I liked the fact that she and I had this conversation, it allowed me to think about one of the reasons why this company is called Seed to Tree Coaching.

Whenever you watch the germination of a seed, it starts all under the ground. Above the ground, it looks like nothing is happening. In many cases, it looks like there is no life, however, the seed underneath, is being watered and nourished by the soil is starting to become strong.

Healthy roots make a tree to stand firm

In time, the seed will take off its outside husk and allow roots to grow, eventually, the plant will push itself through the top of the soil. It takes a couple of weeks to months for various seeds but what matters is that it will push through the soil to the top. Just like a seed under the ground looks like nothing is happening, your business growth can look similar. You may find yourself in a new season right now, where you are trying to develop a better habit, change goals, or bring in a new resolution. You may find yourself feeling very frustrated like you're failing the process all because you don't see any growth. I want to encourage you. Just because can’t see the growth above the ground, doesn't mean there isn't growth. In order for trees to be strong and healthy, the first thing it needs to do is grow strong roots. Without having those healthy roots, the tree cannot stand firm enough to withstand the years to come. If you want to take shortcuts, you can always eliminate the opportunity to grow the roots, but I guarantee you that your tree will not stand as strong...develop the patience to allow the roots to grow first.

Grow your seeds, allow them to sprout above the ground, before you know it you will be in full bloom..that will last for years to come. up on yourself, allow your seed to grow strong so it will stand the test of time and be long-lasting.

Grow your seeds, allow them to sprout above the ground, before you know it you will be in full bloom and that WILL last for years to come.

Like it, subscribe, let me know what you think.

For now, be blessed and be a blessing.
