No por mucho madrugar amanece más temprano

In Spanish, there are these sayings we call “REFRANES”. I believe that just by using these “refranes”, you can have entire conversations.

My dad particularly loved this one: “Al que madruga, Dios le ayuda”. Translated to English, it means: “God helps those who rise early.” To which I used to answer: “No por mucho madrugar, amanece más temprano”. Or, as stated in the image, “You waking up early won’t make dawn earlier”. Both proverbs hold true to me, but at 18, I needed my dad to believe mine was truer ;)

Time fast forward, I see the benefits of waking up early and getting the reigns. But I also believe we often work hard to accelerate processes, thinking we will reach the outcome earlier, without realizing that most events need to follow their natural course.

As an executive Leadership Coach, I see the struggle in my clients to find a balance between taking action to achieve their goals and trusting the process.

What do you think? Which proverb resonates more with you?
