In business and in life, if you want something real bad, than you are likely to get it bad if you rush too hastily.
The business triad for wanting something Good, Fast or Cheap - pick two, and you will not get the third - has application to life and relationships as well.
Where Cheap can represent relative costs in personal sacrifices and efforts not just money.
I'm sitting here next to a Ficus (rubber tree plant). I can't see it growing, but I am absolutely certain that it is. The proof is in the paper-thin protective tips from new leaves that occasionally fall to the floor beneath.
A thought occurs to me: that's a parable of spiritual growth.
ONE EVENING, AN ELDERLY
CHEROKEE BRAVE TOLD HIS
GRANDSON ABOUT A BATTLE THAT
GOES ON INSIDE PEOPLE.
HE SAID "MY SON, THE BATTLE IS
BETWEEN TWO 'WOLVES' INSIDE US ALL.
ONE IS EVIL. IT IS ANGER,
ENVY, JEALOUSY, SORROW,
REGRET, GREED, ARROGANCE,
SELF-PITY, GUILT, RESENTMENT,
INFERIORITY, LIES, FALSE PRIDE,
SUPERIORITY, AND EGO.
THE OTHER IS GOOD.
IT IS JOY, PEACE LOVE, HOPE SERENITY,
HUMILITY, KINDNESS, BENEVOLENCE,
TRUTH, COMPASSION AND FAITH."
THE GRANDSON THOUGH ABOUT
IT FOR A MINUTE AND THEN ASKED
"WHICH WOLF WINS?..."
THE OLD CHEROKEE SIMPLY REPLIED,
"THE ONE THAT YOU FEED"
