What’s up with these ridiculously small seeds?

Sometimes, seeds are planted into us and we let them grow into beautiful entities.

Someone told me once that I was a good listener and I asked great questions. I believed her, and I become a life coach, totally fulfilling my purpose in life. I thank God every day for that seed planted in me!

Sometimes, we are the ones planting seeds in ourselves.

Either way, seeds are at the very core of all we are.

They are so very small but oh-so-powerful. I mean, look at the acorn and the massive oak tree, right?

Seeds look dead.

And if we don’t bury them in the ground where it is dark and wet, they never come to life.

We must sow, nurture, and water them. We must keep weeds away from them. We must love them into seedlings.

And as we care for these seedlings, they have a chance to grow stronger and stronger, until they become what they were meant to be.

I love the possibility that seeds hold.

Power in the tiny. 

Power in the growth.

Potential unlimited.

 

And just as the oak tree sleeps in the acorn, your very future sleeps in your dream.

How are YOU going to bring it to life?

Here are a couple of questions to help you figure it out:

  • What makes me feel happy and fulfilled?
  • If I could do anything and wouldn’t fail, what would I choose?

This thing you would choose, it can be YOUR seed.

Will you own it?

Will you sow it, nurture it, water it, keep it weed-free, protect it from the wind and allow it to come to fruition? Allow it to bear much fruit?

Your life is etched within the seeds you choose to plant and nurture.

Seeds:

      Sacred.

          Exponential.

              Extravagant.

                   Dazzling.

What is YOUR SEED? Please let me know! I’d love to help you discover it or sow it if you would like support! It starts with scheduling a free discovery mini-session with me! See you there.

Who do You Spend Time With?

When I was a teenager, I hung around the wrong crowd for a while–anything for acceptance, you know? Little by little, my thoughts started to change. Then my actions, clothing, speech, and demeanor followed. A young girl full of life became dark, depressed, and totally self-absorbed. It wasn’t a pretty picture!

It’s been said many times over, “You become like the five people you spend the most time with.” This is true intellectually, spiritually and even financially.

My life sure proved it!

The people we spend time with have a direct influence on the choices we make and our mindset. Try to hang out with overly negative people for a while, and see how this will affect your thinking.  On the other hand, when you surround yourself with positive people for long enough, you start seeing things in a different light. Have you ever hung around a group of “health nuts” for a while? There is no way you can continue to eat junk and lay around all day–it just doesn’t happen.

Whether we like it or not, we are influenced by the people we spend time with. It’s part of the human experience.

Let’s look at our attitude towards money for example. If no one in your circle of friends is seeking to better themselves financially, it probably isn’t something that you will be thinking about much. If however, your friends are all about getting out of debt and building a financial legacy, you will more than likely join their quest.

It all comes back to the story we collectively entertain, the unspoken norm that we adopt in mind first of all, and then in actions.

Want to become someone who is full of joy? Choose to be in the presence of joy-full people! Want to grow in your service to humankind? Choose to be in the presence of those who serve well.

When you choose to surround yourself with those who go in the direction you want to go, you are setting yourself up for progress in that area.

Don’t hold back. Your life depends on it.

So, here’s how to get started:

  1. Make a list of the five people you spend most of your time with.
  2. Ask yourself: do I want to become like them? what do they have that I want in terms of value, lifestyle, how they spend their time, education?
  3. If you don’t like your answers, who would you like to be influenced by? Make a list.
  4. Here is the challenging step: make a decision to start a conversation with one of those people–maybe a facebook message, or just a “like” on one of their posts (friends of mine got married after such a “like”),a phone call, an invitation for coffee, etc. The sky is the limit.
