A Old Fable of Today’s Truths…

So an old sage is out walking in the forest with a young pupil.

And they come across this little seedling that started to grow up out of the ground.
And the old sage says to the young pupil, “Take that little seedling from the ground.”
And he reaches over and pulls it up out of the ground.

Then they walk up to this small tree.
And the old sage says to the young pupil, “Take this tree from the ground.”

And the young pupil pushes and and pulls, and pushed and pulls. And goes and gets another branch and is trying to uproot the roots. 45 minutes later, drenched in sweat, dirty, hands bleeding, he finally gets the tree from the ground.

And then they come upon this mighty oak.
And the sage says to the young pupil, “Take this tree from the ground.”

The young pupil can’t even see the top of this mighty oak.
He turns to the sage and says, “There’s no way. That small tree was barely possible. There’s no way I can get THIS tree out of the ground.”

And the old sage says to the young pupil,

That is exactly what your habits are like.
The longer you let them grow, the deeper their root system becomes.
The taller they grow in your life, they might get to the point where you don’t even think it’s possible to uproot them from your life.
Do not allow bad habits to grow in your life.

Write down in the comments one bad habit you would like to decrease in your life.
Then write down one good habit you would like to increase or learn.
