Acorn on a brown desk with its cap and piece of branch

You Have Potential

SITTING ON MY desk is an acorn with its cap and branch.

It has been with me for 30+ years. I remember when and where I found it.

It’s a compact seed that reminds me I have something mighty and important inside me, and I must nurture it — love it — never give up on it — even when other people doubt my belief, commitment and skills because I know what I dream of and yearn for will happen if I put my heart and hard work into it.

Power — possibility — pleasure — promise is in this little nut.

The 14th-century proverb says:

“Tall oaks from little acorns grow.”

What potential you have!

Thanks — Michael (he, him)
