How To Plant Your Own Seed In The Ground

To achieve your purpose, you must first know what you want. If you don’t know what you want, what you want to achieve, where you are going, how can you achieve it, how can you get there? To start, you must nurture your potential. You must plant your own seed in the ground. You must find out what it is that you want to do with your life. Do not make the mistake of chasing what other people are doing. Don’t do it. And even if you did pursue their dreams, when you are done, you are still going to come back to your own dream. Is that not a life wasted? As Charles Darwin once said,”A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.” Time is life. Life is time.

Don’t waste your life with people who don’t know what they are doing, where they are going, and how to get to where they are going. To put it simply, don’t waste your time with people who are confused. Instead, plant your own seed in the ground. Don’t forget it. Don’t ignore it. Because if you want your dreams to grow, your seeds to grow, you must water them. You must give them the right nutrients. You must work to make your dreams happen. You must work really hard to create your own future, if you are to have one.

Your future is about knowing who you are in the present. And to nurture your seed, you must never stop learning about yourself. Why is that? Because what you knew about yourself yesterday has expired. You are a human being. You are changing every day. So never stop learning about yourself. Focus on what you want to do, do it with all your might, don’t give it up, water it, feed it, and make it your mission on this earth no matter how tough. Because you will always get what you sow.

Why You Fear Failure

No one likes to fail. You are not alone. But failure is part of life. Whether you like it or not, you are going to fail. It is going to get worse before it gets better. There is no overnight success. You are not going to master your work overnight. If you want to grow, if you want to conquer your fears, don’t rush the process. Because it takes time to learn something. Don’t expect things to turn out right the first time. It is not going to happen. If you expect it to work out for you the first time, believe me, that is a losing strategy. It won’t work. Just give yourself time to do your thing. Things are not always going to work out perfectly the first time. Instead of beating yourself up for not completing your work, why not give yourself credit for even trying it. Respect failure. Respect the process. Because everything takes time to do, especially when you are doing it for the first time. If you want to change your life, from now on, you must change your meaning of failure. Failure is not failure. It is a way forward. Because you cannot grow without failure. That is what separates the successful ones from the rest of us. They are not afraid of failure. You shouldn’t be afraid of failure. Do not fear it. Use failure to move yourself forward in your life. When you fail, live it. When you fail, ask for help. Do not be scared to ask for help. Celebrate it when you get it. Help is healthy. It is life. When you make mistakes, fix them. Own them. Do not blame anyone for your mistakes. Instead of blaming other people for your own error, celebrate yourself for knowing what you don’t know.
