What seeds are you planting?

I’ve been so fortunate. Being taught the gift of reading and cultivating the skill of observing (a form of listening), I have been exposed to countless “mentors” along the way. One I really enjoy is Earl Nightingale. One of his gifts: “The Strangest Secret”. Within, he helped reinforce the “As ye sow, so shall ye reap” concept. It helped me realize that I, too, have become a farmer of sorts. It is my intent to plant the seeds that will ultimately help millions unlock, engage, and optimize their potential.

Earl’s basic message centered on our ability to determine the type of “seed” we plant in our minds: positive seeds yield positive outcomes; the converse is also true. Some offer that since we aren’t in control of much other than our own activities, not all positive seeds yield positive outcomes. Well, that’s true, but we are in control of how we respond to all situations.

My advice: even in what may appear to be negative situations, attempt to find the lesson to be learned. Even in dire circumstances, we can often find a light that helps us Grow Forward.

My hope: in this next week, you look for that “silver lining” in all clouds you encounter. Let me know how you dealt with them and how you are stronger as a result.

Until then, live with an Abundance Mentality, Concentrate on Priorities, and Earnestly pursue your Purpose with passion!
