It seems like an obvious question doesn’t it?
If you bang a piece of wood against a concrete wall, the wood will soon break apart.
But as I drove along our street the other day, I was reminded of an important principle.
I saw a tree growing next to a concrete path and over time, the roots of the tree had started to crack the concrete and break through.
Despite the concrete being obviously harder, the tree had won the battle through sheer persistence and slow, inexorable progress.
Sometimes in life it seems as though the challenges in front of us are too difficult to overcome.
