You start now, you put in the work consistently and in ten years you have the shade and the fruit.
It’s that simple.
That’s how you can get rich. You start a business (You plant a seed). Then you work daily on said business (You tend to your seed). The seed turns into a little tree (Your business starts making some profits).
You continue working on your business (You tend to the little tree). Your business gets bigger and bigger (Your tree gets bigger). Eventually, you make your business automatic (Your tree is now big enough to need very little to no tending).
Now your business brings you money non-stop (Your tree gives you shade and fruits). You still have to tend to it, but very little.
Success works the same way in every venue. You put in the work now, you reap the benefits later.
My father didn’t get rich overnight. It took him over a decade.
My grandpa’s orchard didn’t grow in a day. It took years.
I didn’t become one of the best boxers in my county overnight. It took me 2 years of hard work.
You must understand that achieving success, as growing a tree, takes time. It takes consistency.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. – chinese proverb
