I have no time for personal development and training, will it bite me back?

A tree can't survive for long if it doesn't have deep roots. Make sure you invest energy in building your own root system to become a stronger person in the future.

Not all trees are sequoias, but all big trees have strong roots

This has strong implications for your personal life but also your professional environment: the moment people will consider you strong they'll start trusting you much more and build long-term projects with you. Opportunities are everywhere for those who are well connected, but not all opportunities are for everyone due to the high variability of characters and personalities.

Obviously not every one needs the same roots, as all trees aren't sequoias. Make sure you don't ignore your personal needs: chances are yours will be different from others, even close ones.

Adapt to your environment too, as plants do to weather conditions throughout the year. Remember some orchids live out of the ground!
