Have you ever noticed that good things always come to people who already have good things? Success seems to chase some people and others seem to chase success. How do you become the one that success chases? Whatever your field, wherever your dreams may lie, whomever you want to become…the seed to that success lies dormant within until you begin to nurture it.
Success is a Seed
I like to think of success as a seed. Every seed has it’s potential encapsuled within it’s own shell, if you will. An acorn has everything it takes to become a strong oak tree in itself. You’re not going to plant an acorn and have an avacado tree sprout from it. That acorn knows what it is intended to be and it has all the dynamics of what it will take to become an oak tree, from the root system to the trunk, the bark, the leaves and the intricate vein system to nourish itself. It is all self contained.
The Universe is filled with potential that is available to any and all that are willing to take hold of it. Once you grasp the potential seed and start to focus and give thought to it, it will begin to grow.
Sprouts of Success
I remember showing my kids how to sprout seeds from a wet paper towel. We placed the seeds on a damp paper towel and put it up on the top shelf of a kitchen cupboard. The kids would go back and want to check it a couple times a day to see if anything was happening at first. Then after a few days they forgot about it. Over the next week or two I continued to make sure the towel was damp by adding a few drops of water to it and placing it back in the dark. Did I ever doubt that those seeds would sprout? Absolutely not, because I have done this so many times I knew what to expect…all I had to do was nourish them a bit and wait.
A couple weeks later I called the kids into the kitchen, holding the folded paper towel in my hand. I could see on their faces that they had forgotten all about the little experiment and watched their curiosity spark back up as soon as they realized I was about to show them something. I unfolded the towel slowly and, sure enough, the seeds had sprouted little white roots and had even started producing tiny little leaves on a couple. The kids were thrilled and it gave me a great opportunity to teach them about sowing and reaping.
Law of Sowing and Reaping
You see, once we decided to take the seeds and DO SOMETHING with them the outcome was set in motion. Those tiny seeds knew what they had to do and all they needed was a little nourishment. It didn’t matter that we went about our days forgetting all about them because they had everything programmed inside them to do exactly what they were meant to do. I knew they would sprout, but it didn’t matter if I believed it or not because it’s a Universal law that a seed will produce of it’s own kind. A law is a law. If I drop a rock the law of gravity is going to make it fall.
So it is with the seeds of potential within you and me. They are there waiting to be nourished and have everything it takes to produce a full and complete product of itself. Decide what it is that you want to produce and nourish that seed by giving it thought and attention. The more thought you put into it the more it will begin to encompass your mind…it’s all you will begin to think about. If you decide to plant the seed of becoming an Event Planner, you will start seeing stories and opportunities pop up around you wherever you look. That’s the law of attraction at work providing your seed the nourishment it needs to grow.
Producing Bumper Crops
When an opportunity presents itself, don’t hesitate. Take action and seize the moment. Be decisive and be confident. That seed of potential you are growing knows exactly what it’s going to need to successfully produce a harvest. You don’t need to stress out over whether you’re good enough or know enough. Just plant the seed and continue to seize opportunities as they present themselves, because they WILL. It’s just your job to ACT on them.
With every action your seed will grow and will eventually mature to produce the fruit you’ve been waiting for. What happens then? Your seed produces more seed! Can you see where this is going? Apply the same principals again and again to come up with bumper crops of success in whatever field you decide upon.
The key is to decide, focus and act. Then let nature take it’s course. You have the potential to become whatever you decide. Have you decided yet?
I’d love to hear from you. Have you seen this in action in your life? Do you think it’s a bunch of malarkey? Leave your comments below.
