Worthy endeavors. We all want one. We’re all looking to make our mark, to make a difference, to make a dent in the universe. To do this, you’ll need roots that go deep.
Think about it: The deeper you go, the higher you’ll reach. That's the paradox of growth.
Deep roots guarantee strength. Being shallow rooted is dangerous. You're much more susceptible to adverse conditions. Deeper roots increase your odds of persevering through all the challenges headed your way.
Deep roots ensure health. On the contrary, shallow rooted people are at the mercy of unhealthy influences. For example, it’s natural to want approval from others; but, often, this desire degenerates into a craving and becomes inordinate. Deeper roots solves the problem because they naturally yield maturity and self-confidence.
You can make your mark. You can make a difference. You can make your dent, but only by going deep.
