When people fulfil their dreams, they positively impact their communities.
Time to let you in on a bit more of my conversation with Adansonia(no, it’s not a made-up name; it’s the biological name for the baobab).
When he moved to the plains which he now called home, life was uncertain. Before he was even 2 years old, he’d seen other trees, just like him, sprout and die. He didn’t have to think deep to decide what he was most passionate about.
His dream was simply to thrive.
And thrive, he did. He realized that to be exceptional, he’d have to do what no one else was doing. Every other tree in the plains simply stretched out their roots for sustenance. He decided to do the undone. He ventured more than 2 metres below ground level. He continued searching until he found enough food to thrive on. He grew strong and tall and very great.
Beyond his thriving, Baobab blessed everyone around him. His bark, fruit, leaves and seeds are, to this day, used for medicinal purposes by the villagers nearby. His bark is processed into affordable cloth and ropes that serve the villagers well. His hollow trunk can provide shelter for up to 40 people on a hot summer day!
Simply by achieving his dream, Baobab empowered the entire community he lived in to live a better life.
Making dreams come true.
