The Thorns of Opportunity...Part II
The quest for ultimate victory.
In part one I shared with you how not knowing what you don't know, much like "thorny" gardener, can rob you of your time, and keep you from enjoying and living life you want.
You also learned how a seemingly accidental event can instantly change your life, as you experience magic of an "ah ha" moment.
Do you ever find yourself saying "Why bother!" or asking "What's point?" I mean you put in time and effort only to end up with a result you don't like or worse yet, a result you know others won't like.
How many projects have you left incomplete, simply because you didn't like results?
Read on and learn why frustration of incomplete projects doesn't have to happen.
In this story you will learn that perfection often has little to do with being perfect.
Today I am going to tell you about third field of roses and how gardener of that field tended to 1000's of rose bushes in third field.
Much like "thorny" gardener, third gardener was constantly clipping buds from rose bushes.
Working from sun up to sun down it took every ounce of energy third gardener had to clip 1000's of rose buds. Weeds were constantly a distraction.
There was never enough time to tend to both rose buds and weeds. Still, gardener tried.
So, why is it that third gardener was clipping rose buds? Unlike "thorny" gardener third gardener was well aware of bud's purpose and very much wanted rose to bloom.
In fact third gardener focused every waking moment on making sure rose bloom had every opportunity to bloom to perfection.
You see third gardener was not focused on thorny bush nor was gardener inspired by possibility of a field filled with 1000's of colorful blooms.
The third gardener, "perfect" gardener, was not focused on having a field of roses. The "perfect bloom" was focus of "perfect gardener."
With all of "perfect" gardener's effort it was still true, more often than not, that field was filled with nothing but thorny bushes, without a single bloom.
If "perfect" gardener" wasn't examining a bush and clipping it's buds, gardener was tending to weeds.
On many occasions you could find "perfect" gardener digging up a rose bush to make room for a new and improved rose bush. You see, only best rose bush could produce perfect bloom.
After all "perfect bloom," was "perfect" gardener's dream.
To even be considered as a contender bloom must have a certain shape, quality of color, right number of pedals, and that one of a kind and alluring fragrance.
The "perfect bloom" started with "perfect bud." The "perfect" gardener was always asking, "Could this bud produce perfect rose?
Few buds survived being clipped.
As life would have it, in a forgotten part of field; in an area where soil was riddled with rocks and was dry more often than not, stood a thorny bush.
This bush was different and it was not easily seen. The little bush was surrounded and nearly smothered by many weeds.
Still, without attention and care of "perfect" gardener rose bush in forgotten part of field, would grow.
