Many plants, like the tulip and the apple tree, would not blossom in the springtime were it not for the period of dormancy that is the gift of winter’s chill. Their example can inspire us to use this season of slumber to cleanse ourselves of spiritual and emotional detritus like flora shedding lifeless foliage so that we, too, may emerge from under the frost refreshed and renewed when spring arrives.
The one thing all famous authors, world class athletes, business tycoons, singers, actors, and celebrated achievers in any field have in common, one, is that they all began their journeys when they were none of these things.
Yet still, they began their journeys.
You are so poised for greatness,
