Question: How tall does a tree grow?

Answer: As tall as it's environment allows

Solution: Save the environment

There are many wise ways to use this image in connection with self-growth: if we don't feel as if we're growing, one way to kick growth is that we can change our environment, get out of our comfort zones and see what will happen.

"How tall does a tree grow?" "As tall as it can, " answers Jim Rohn.

Another interesting thing about threes that all the "you can be a success-guys" seem to forget is that it knows when to stop and maybe even when to shed it leaves and take a winter's break from growing.

I wish you all a life as the best trees you can be. Trine
