Very excited to share this beautiful photo and something about palm trees that you didn't know (When storms hit, be like the palm trees!) ..

Have you noticed that in the aftermath of a hurricane, generally, houses were destroyed, trees were uprooted, but palm trees remained standing? That's because palm trees are designed to bend, to withstand the storm...
Michael Jordan is often referred to as the greatest basketball player of all time (GOAT!). He attributes his success to his many failures as he claimed that they made him try even harder. One example, at high school, he was cut from the basketball team (he went home later the day, locked himself in his room & cried). He also counted his failures such as 300 lost games and missing the game-winning shot 26 times. Most people may be discouraged by failures but not Michael! Quote: "I know that fear is an obstacle for some people, but for me it is just an illusion.. Failure always makes me try harder on the next opportunity." Back to the palm trees, scientists have found when the storm is over and the palm trees stand upright again, they are actually stronger than they were before the storm. Something important we could all learn from the trees!
