A Seed for a Seed

b2ap3_thumbnail_MP900444286It’s been said, “If you think you can or if you think you can’t, you are right.”  The seeds of every aspect of our being that grow within us are planted by us in large measure by the way we think.  Plant a seed of negativity and you will get a negative result.  Conversely plant a seed of positivity and the result will be positive.  There is no mystery in that…it’s a fact proven time after time in study after study.

Putting this whole idea in a slightly different frame of reference, it’s not the human “won’t.”  It’s the human “will!”  Great things happen through a strong attitude of “will” rather than a negative attitude of “won’t.”  The sewer of life is filled through the drain of negative thoughts.

If you are going to live your life to the level of your dreams, it takes the will to put forth the effort.  The power of your effort is driven by the engine of your attitude and the fuel of your dreams.  A key to turning on the engine and igniting that fuel is your self-esteem.  The height to which your self-esteem grows is directly proportional to the quality of seeds of thought you plant.

Consider another metaphor of the seeds you can plant.  You can choose to stand on the shore of life and wonder about the potential of its mysteries.  Or, you can jump in and become fully immersed in pushing the mysteries aside and realizing your life’s true potential.

The seed of fear concerning change, though, can make you resistant to making that jump.  Have you ever been resistant to change?  May I suggest you reconsider?  Without change you wouldn’t be here!  The instant you were born everything changed.  The seed of a new life had grown into the being of that life!

From that point forward the seeds you get are the result of the seeds you plant.
