“A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because its trust is not in the branch, but in its own wings.”

– Charlie Wardle

This is a truth I think about nearly every day . . . how it applies to my work, to my client’s working experiences, and to so much of all of our daily experiences. Hard times come and hard times go. They sometimes do “damage,” and they often leave behind them greater “strength,” as well. The truth is they usually do both. Getting through those “stormy” times unharmed and unhinged takes the strength that only self-confidence gives you. The self-confidence that you can and will survive to see the sun rise once more. Like the branches of a tree, bank accounts and buddies are great support in difficult times, but better still and more dependable is the inner confidence you hold inside you – your wings, so to speak – that are always there to lift you up and keep you afloat when nothing else outside you is available to do so.

This “lifting” thought was sent to us by Dann P. of Lake Forest, California. Thanks, Dann, for the uplifting quote.
