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.

The time will pass anyway

When the going gets really tough, for most of us, it is easier to quit than to continue. It does not matter what you are pursuing, nothing great comes easy, do not quit. No matter how hard or how long the journey might be, just keep doing what you are doing- continue.

A lot of people gave up on their dreams before they even started. Do not give up on your own. Your dream is your future. If you give up on your dream because it is too hard, or because it will take years to reach, think about what will happen to you and your life if stop pursuing your dream. Ask yourself: “Am I going to be better or am I going to remain miserable?” If you know that where you are now is better, then stay there. But if you know that where you are now is taking so much away from you than adding to it, then it is time for you to think of what to do next. Do not stay in a place, a job, a relationship, that is not adding value to your life.

When the going gets really tough, for most of us, it is easier to quit than to continue.”

If you are tired of where you are, if you tired of doing the same thing over and over again, it is time to move forward. I know it is hard to take the first bold step, but you can do it. You can do it. If you don’t know what to do, reach out to people who where in your situation before and have made similar moves. Talk to them, seek their help. This is the time to pocket your “ego.”

Remember, when you are taking the first bold move, it is not going to be easy. It is going to be messy. But that is what makes life so interesting- you don’t always know what is ahead of you. Always prepare for the unexpected and hope for the best. Never give up on your dreams. Life is too important to waste. Don’t waste yours. Earl Nightingale said, “Never give up on a dream just because of the time it take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.”

That is what you need to remember: Whether you pursue your dream or not, the time will pass anyway. Since you now know that the time will surely pass, why not do whatever it takes to pursue your dream?

Never give up!
