Think big even if you’re small (The Financial Athlete #55 rewrite)

Be like a tall tree
reaching for the heavens
and rooted to the earth

Without root in the earth
the wind drifts you away

Without reaching for the heavens
You get stuck in the mud


The road to success is
rarely straight and wide

At times it is
or descends precipitously

The road to success meanders
and when you tire
a mountain climber reaches the summit
one step at a time
proceeding more slowly in higher elevation
where the air is thinner

Think big to develop willpower to persevere
Be grateful for what you have learned
and never stop learning

The journey is ultimately about self-discovery and growth
