The bamboo Tree story. wow

Have you ever seen a Bamboo Tree? It soars over a hundred feet straight



up. What's even more awesome about a Bamboo Tree, though, is how one grows.







First, you have to get a Bamboo stock, about 18 inches long. Dig a hole 3feet



deep, and bury the stock completely in the ground. For the next 5years, that



stock must be watered every single day, 365 days a year. If one day is missed



the tree will never appear. But, if meticulous care is taken for that 5



years, it is said that on that 1,825th day, the ground will break open and



the tree will appear out of the ground.







What happens next is the phenomenon of the Bamboo Tree. The tree will soar to



over 90 feet in a matter of 6 weeks! It grows at a rate of three feet every



24 hours. You could practically sit back and watch it grow. Some people say



it takes 6 weeks for a Bamboo Tree to grow, while others say it takes 5 years



and 6 weeks to grow. I guess it depends on if you were the one watering it



for 5 years.







Imagine if you were to plant a Bamboo Tree in your back yard, and went out



every day to water it, rain or shine. Suppose one of your neighbors see you



doing this for several days and asks, "What are you watering the same spot of



ground every day for?". You reply, "I'm growing a Bamboo Tree. You water it



every day for 5 years, then it grows to 90 feet in 6 weeks. You ought to try



it." He ponders the idea, then replies, "No, I think I'll wait and see if



yours works."







The next year, that same neighbor sees that your still watering the spot of



ground. He asks, "Why are you still watering that spot and nothing happens?"



You tell the man, "It takes time to grow a Bamboo Tree, but once it comes out



of the ground, it is the most awesome sight to see. You ought to grow one



too!" The neighbor just laughs and replies, "No, I'll just wait to see how



yours turns out."







The third year, the neighbor isn't talking to you any more, doesn't want



anything to do with you. The whole neighborhood has heard about the crazy



lady on the block that keeps watering this same spot in her yard, hoping to



grow a Bamboo Tree. The fourth year, they're sizing you up for a straight



jacket, and none of the children are allowed to play near your home. But in



that fifth year, the ground breaks open, and that stock that you had planted



catches it's first rays of sunshine, and away it goes!







Six weeks later the neighbors are admiring this awesome sight that you now



have, wishing they had a Bamboo Tree. But they would have to wait 5 years for



theirs to grow! Boy, do they wish they would have listened to you 5 years ago.







You have planted your stock in a your Network Marketing Company. It is much



like a Bamboo Tree. It takes watering every day. You don't see anything



happen for some time, but you keep watering it. Many people will ask you,



"How's your business going? Have you made your fortune yet? I'll wait to see



how you do." Then one day, your organization will open up, catch it's first



rays of sunshine, and away it goes! You could practically sit back and watch



it grow, faster and faster, higher and higher. While you're sitting on the



top of your Bamboo Tree enjoying the view, others will be thinking, "I wish I



had listened, and planted my stock."







For a very small number of people that are super consultants, this could be



within a few months. For the rest of us, we will work diligently for maybe 5



years (hopefully less) growing our Bamboo Tree. We will make mistakes, poor decisions, use poor judgment, even be discouraged at times and think about



quitting, but, if we keep doing it, be diligent in our watering, it will



work! Keep it simple. It's a simple opportunity!
