“You won’t help shoots grow by pulling them higher.”

~Chinese Proverb

This quote speaks to partience.

A “shoot” is a term for young plants. We can all recognize that pulling on the base of a plant does not result in faster growth – it actually pulls them out of the ground pre-maturely.

When patience runs thin, remind ourselves of this quote. Emotions will run, and we will want the immediate satisfaction of whatever it may be. This can be setting be setting a personal best on the snatch, or the passing of a slow car in traffic.

It is a reminder to focus on the process, which would be the water and nutrients the plant needs, rather than the endstate.
