Imagine for moment, a tree anchored to the ground by thousands of roots, that run miles
beneath the soil, creating a strong foundation in which this tree will stand on for years to
come. As seasons pass, life will present this tree with many storms requiring it to grow
big and become stronger. It will create shade and become a refuge to humans and
many animals which cross it's path.Now you may be thinking, where is the leadership lesson and how can I learn from this?Like many trees, we have all experienced storms that interrupt our lives, that we have
learned from. Many struggles throughout life push us to our breaking point, making us
stronger, smarter, wiser and more compassionate, not only with ourselves but also with
those who take refuge in our stories of triumph.Powerful Lesson 1Gather what you have learned from your ancestors, friends, life struggles, coaches,
mentors and build a strong foundation for rocky situations.
Powerful Lesson 2Embrace the storms of life, welcome them with open arms.Powerful Lesson 3Share your triumphs of overcoming struggle and become a beacon of hope for others.Powerful Lesson 4Sharing your story unlocks creativity, joy, peace, happiness that other will see from afar.Powerful Lesson 5Take your failure by the hand. Stop blaming yourself for the storm, there is nothing
bad about failure.
