In the first year of growing a bamboo tree, there will be no signs of growth, despite nurturing for it and watering it consistently. You do this for 2 years, 3, 4, but no signs of life.
The Chinese bamboo tree will not begin growing until the fifth year. But in that fifth year, it grows 80 feet in 6 weeks.
Most people will be shocked to know that the bamboo can grow 80 feet in just 6 weeks. But those who work hard, those who show up every day to water the bamboo tree know differently. They know that the Chinese bamboo tree takes 5 years of determination before you can get that 6 weeks of success.
