Are You a Caterpillar or Butterfly?

Are you a caterpillar who wants to fly?

Some days in life things go slow like we’re treading water, and other days we get to a place where we think we’re there.

We’ve arrived!  Yay…we’re here!

And then we realize we’re just looking at the other side of the cocoon we’re trapped in, with one wing out and our feet stuck to the bottom.

We haven’t arrived yet, and we fight against the odds to prove ourselves ready.  There’s nothing wrong with getting out there.  We have to learn the territory and the flight pattern.  And sometimes, we have to tweak our plans.

Some of us grow faster than others.  Some of us have more to learn than others.  Some of us need confidence to fly.  Some of us need pushed out of the cocoon, and some of us need to get above the clouds to get a clear view of what lies ahead.

However, while we’re growing, are we enjoying the journey?  Do we realize that growth is a necessary part to our dreams? Are we learning from our mistakes?

If you’re wondering where this came from today, I have a couple of things to throw out there.

  1.  I was looking at part of this children’s poem I wrote a few years ago.
  2. My daughter was telling me about a conversation she had with a girl in one of her groups.

My daughter posted that it took her six years to make director in her company when others made director sooner.  A girl in her group sent her a message stating that she was getting discouraged, and wanted to know how my daughter got her mindset.

The determining factor:

She decided that no matter how long it took her to make director, she was going to get there.  With the many ups and downs of team members joining, and leaving, over these six years, she is committed to her dream.  And now she is in the next stage of her journey.

Commitment is necessary!

One day you will fly, is you stay committed and keep pursuing your dream!

Have a good day!

Sincerely, BG
