What are you planting? What are you doing to change your life? What are you doing to get yourself from where you are to where you want to be?
If you want to do anything, now is the right time. If you want to study, learn something, improve your skills, now is the time. Remember, according to Leo Buscaglia, “Change is the true result of all through learning.”
If you want to grow, learn something new. If you don’t like what you are getting, then learn something new. The more you learn, the more you will know. And the more questions you will ask. Anthony de Mello said, “When we don’t accept or follow, but question, investigate, penetrate, there is an insight out of which comes creativity, joy.” Do not just follow the crowd.
Ask the right questions. Know what you want. Know where you are going. And most importantly, know what you do not want.
“If our life here is anything, it is a preparation for the life to come.”- Robert Collier
Whether you like it or not, everything you do in your life is a seed.
Resentment is a seed. Fear is a seed. Love is a seed. Courage is a seed. Happiness is a seed. Hate is a seed. Work is a seed. Exercise is a seed. Learning is a seed. Envy is a seed. Thought is a seed. Laziness is a seed. Focus is a seed. Patience is a seed. Positive attitude is a seed. Money is a seed. Like it or not, everything is a seed.
So if you want to achieve greatness in your life, you must plant the right seeds. If you want more money, then sow the seeds of work. Robert Collier said, “We are all sowers, and the seeds we sow in good ground are seeds of success, of riches and happiness. Every word we speak, everything we do, is a seed.”
Before you do anything, make sure you know what you are getting yourself into. “Pick your soil” wisely.
