The Potential Of The Seed
Posted: March 25, 2020
What determines the potential of a seed? The answer may surprise you. Take a seed and put it in fertile soil and it’s potential to will become unlocked. Put that same seed on pavement and at best, a bird will come by and eat it. What’s different? It’s true - your environment can absolutely have a positive or negative impact, regardless of your potential.
How can we take the lesson of the seed and apply it to our life? I think the single most powerful thing you can do is bring people who you aspire to be like into your world. Their thoughts, feelings, and actions will reveal how they are able to be the person you aspire to be. It becomes truly the equivalent of fertile soil all around the seed, making it only a matter of time before you see the results you are after.
Conversely, instead of doing this, you can continue within your same peer group thinking the same thoughts, feeling the same feelings, taking the same actions and getting the same results. You have consciously chosen to stifle the growth potential in you, like laying a seed on the pavement.
The exciting thing is that we get to choose where we go and who we go with. Nature can be a powerful teacher and a reminder of what makes us who we are. Create a fertile environment for yourself and unlock the Personal Best potential that lies waiting to blossom.
