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.

What Is Success Really About?

Is success really about you? Or is it about your actions? Or is it about your words? Or is it about your thoughts? Or is it about how you treat other people? Or is it about how you treat yourself? What does it really mean to you? For the purpose of this note, success is not about you. It is more than you. It is about how you live your life. It is about how you treat other people, especially the little guys, the vulnerable ones, the homeless ones, the poor ones. It is about knowing what you want in your life and going for it. It is about doing what you want to do to change your life. It is about taking positive actions that will change the lives of other people. That is what success is all about. Success is not about what you have; it is about what you give to change the lives of other people. Success is not about you; it is about other people. Because no one succeeds alone. Whatever you have, you didn’t do it alone. If you want to succeed, help other people succeed. Keep doing good things. Keep changing the world. Respect yourself. Treat people with respect. Don’t try to make everybody happy. It won’t work. That is not success. Success is making yourself happy. Success is thinking positively about yourself, your work, your relationships. Because if you don’t like yourself, don’t expect other people to like you. You are your message. You are your own messager. If you want people to help you tomorrow, be nice to them today. Because your tomorrow is happening right now, right where you are. Don’t ignore it. Live it.
