The story of the Chinese Bamboo Tree

Like every other tree in the forest, the Chinese Bamboo Tree starts its journey as a tiny seed planted below the surface of the earth which requires nurturing – water, fertile soil, sunshine to break forth the solid surface of the earth. 

Unlike every other tree which seed sprouts and begins to yield leaves and fruits, the Chinese Bamboo tree goes invisible in its first year, second year. Again, no growth above the soil within the third and fourth year.  
And finally in the fifth year – behold, a miracle! The Chinese Bamboo tree grows 80 feet in just six weeks! and outshines all other trees. 

This can be related to our years of sowing and toiling with no significant result to show forth; our patience is tested and we begin to wonder if our efforts (caring, water, etc.) will ever be rewarded.
And within our fifth year, we experience growth. And what growth it is! Tremendous Growth

I hope this gives you a reason not to give up on those goals and success stories you are diligently cooking up.  
Don’t worry, with time it will speak.
