“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” – Albert Einstein
I always love to compare growth to plants. Because some plants grow outward first while other spend months growing roots before they are able to show any fruit.
In the end both grow fruit, but the process could not be more different.
It can be super easy to compare one persons growth to another, to see the one plant that already has fruit and say it is doing better than the other plant. Yet just below the surface the other plant is doing just as well, the one difference is that you cannot see it.
Be an influence of change, growth and encouragement. You deserve it but those around you that are trying to better themselves also deserve it.
