Even in harsh circumstances you can thrive.
There is wonderful display of vibrant bromeliads at the Dallas Arboretum that quite poignantly capture this idea. Despite being kept on a rock wall, the plants thrive with the tender care of their keepers.
This is an appropriate metaphor for your own success. You can thrive in any circumstances if you mindfully care to your own affairs.
- There will be tragedies.
- There will be hardships.
- There will be injustices.
You can, however, choose to persevere and be resilient in the face of such difficulties. You have to recognize your personal responsibility to be the keeper of your own success. You must inspire, nurture and care for yourself. There’s no guarantee anyone else will.
