Have you ever seen a bamboo tree in the middle of the storm? You will be amazed how it faced the strong winds. It does not fight it, rather, the bamboo tree swayed and danced with it. This same bamboo tree reminds us to be resilient in times of struggles. Be pliant like a bamboo tree.

Life without struggle is a meaningless life. We struggle and we feel pain only because something big is coming our way. These constant struggles are but a test of our courage and resilience. So, whatever disappointments or problems come our way, we have to believe in the strength of our own spirit. Keep the mind strong and the body able. Allow them to be your bow and arrow to aim for the goals that you have set for yourself.

Always remember that at some point, you will lose some and you will win some. Don’t falter and weather the storm like the bamboo tree. We can do it!
