I was asked recently, “Do you actually believe money grows on trees?”
I had to think for a moment if this person was asking me literally or not. I understand it’s the title of my children’s book but were they posing a trick question?
While I have never seen money actually grow on trees I used this illustration to show how the process and parallels of making money/accomplishing a goal works in a majority of situations through out life . A large portion of the public will never grow their own “tree” and that’s OK. They can be part of the process and live a great life and contribute to this great place we all live on, Earth.
However, I wrote the book to not only help children dream but for adults to re-dream. Far to often I meet with adults that have great potential and a passion for something but do nothing about it. They are afraid to step up to the starting line. Maybe the finish line seems to far away or maybe they don’t think the finish line exists.
Secretly, I was hoping that this book would obviously impact children but also force adults to come back to life and dream again. At the end of the book, I inserted a question section. This section was specifically designed for kids and adults to interact and force the adult to think hard about their purpose on this planet.
I want for everyone what I have. This all started as a little idea that I wrote down and I turned it into a book because I wanted to share it with you. So to answer your question, yes, I do believe and I hope you will as well.
Remember, do your best, have fun, and make a difference!
