“How Deep Do Your Roots Go?” That was the question that popped into my head yesterday evening driving home from work in Bellevue, WA. I was stopped in CRAZY traffic, and low and behold, I was stuck by this amazingly beautiful tree.
It was worn, had some thick roots exposed, yet still had beautiful color and leaves growing on it. All of this was grown on top of a hill in between cement blocks. My mind was going a mile a minute even though I sat there for hours from what it seemed. I took a deep look into my life and thought, "how deep do my roots go?" Now some may think this means family tree, etc., but I got thinking more along the lines of spirituality and hard work.
Everything I've done for years from growing up, going through heartaches, the stress of serving the US Army, marriage, being a new daddy, you name it, all of this has created deep thick roots in my life, which has shaped me into the man I am today. This can even go with business. How hard do you work? Do you put 150% into everything you want to do or have a passion to do? Are your fundemental life choices creating deep, thick growing roots, that shape your life for the better?
So here is my question to all of you.... "How Deep Do Your Roots Go?"
