Be of courage!

Jen Drysdale wrote on FB: A great ride indeed! This mentorship has changed my work and my life in so many ways. Life long friendships have been created. Thank you Tony Clennell for being at the heart of of it all.
Hey Jen here is a public answer to your powerful sentiments on Face Book.
Harv Eker: "In every forest, on every farm, in every orchard on earth, what's under the ground creates what's above the ground. That's why placing your attention on the fruits you have already grown is futile. You can't change the fruits that are already hanging on the tree. But you can change tomorrow's fruits. To do so, you will have to dig below the ground and strengthen the roots."

So Jen you’ve been busy this year diggin’ and strengthening the roots. Yep the fruit is a different colour and yes it is tastier for some of us and inedible for others. You will find along your clay path that it gets narrower. You will appeal to fewer people and there will be fewer walking along with you.  Sometimes you feel like the only person in the room willing to wear the black hat.  You will make life tougher for yourself but when the final curtain falls it will be recognized that the potter’s craft was alive in your work. You have stood up in this mentorship as the burgeoning potter’s potter on the block by sticking with pots. That is a badge worth more than gold. Well actually that and $1.30 will get you a small coffee at McDonalds. Be of courage!
