Here is WHY I chose Bamboo to be the key ingredient of Dear Olena mask: is good inside and out. How such a delicate stem can survive the strongest wind? Let’s look closer at it: Chinese Bamboo needs water, fertile soil, and sunshine; the first year passes by, there are no visible signs of growth; story repeats during the second, third and fourth year.
You almost loose hope and your patience is tested. You think: is the efforts caring for and watering the tree will ever be rewarded? You start to doubt and question the value of all efforts. Sometimes, you contemplate quitting.
But then finally in the fifth year – something amazing happens…
Bamboo tree grows 80 feet tall in just 6 weeks!
It is amazing if you think about it: the little tree, developing a root system strong enough to support its potential for outward growth in the fifth year and beyond!
Had the tree not developed a strong unseen foundation it could not have sustained its life as it grew. The same principle is true for people.
Building your character while working on dreams and goals, overcoming challenges, equals to growing foundation to handle success. If you are there to get rich fast or win lottery, you will probably be unable to handle sudden wealth.
Always believe in what you do even the results are yet to come. Let’s say, you have acne, believe it will go away. And do not stop trying to heal your face. I was told that a recipe of 40 herbs will set me free from pimples i hated and i swallowed my faith with every spoon of the treatment. Every day i would pray and request God to heal me. Once desperately crying on the floor in the bathroom but it doesn’t change the fact: i believed.
It takes faith not to stop while you wait. It takes belief and confidence to keep going.
Success does not come instantly at your request want but it feels good once you have it. Patience shapes your character. It produces endurance. How bad do you want your face to be clean? How long are you willing to work on it with unbeatable faith?
