We Reap Where We Sow

Brilliant success is a result of the hard work that goes into producing it. Like any crop, we reap what we sow. If nothing goes in, nothing comes out. As much as we wish to have spectacular results in our life, it’s a childish dream to believe it happens merely from wishing and wanting it to be so!

Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven’t planted.

David Bly

Yes, our success indeed starts with a “child-like’ dream, one where we imagine what we can do and be and have but unlike a child, we know we can never, and will never, receive anything worthwhile without giving something in return. It could be our time, energy or money and we must be completely dedicated to its actualization, because dedication is what it takes to bring an idea full circle to a successful completion.

Maybe we’re in a place in our life where we’re exhausted, confused, and uncertain “what” we really want. It may come after a painful relationship has ended, quitting a stressful job, a business closing, or recovering from a health crisis. Maybe we don’t even know what success looks like for us?

In this case, we’ve not failed at anything; however, we’re in great need of major self-reflection to rediscover our unique essence and how to find true life satisfaction sharing our natural gifts with the world. If this is you, I promise, you’re not alone! Everyone goes through this at one point or another in our beautiful life. The struggle produces clarity when we’re open to receiving it.

During this harvest season, take stock of what dreams have ripened and what dreams have spoiled. Celebrate the dreams you’ve triumphantly realized but take note of how and why other crops failed. Lack of effort, interest, necessity? We have limited resources and can’t do everything, all at once but what is truly a priority in our life will receive what’s needed to thrive. Time. Energy. Love.

Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.

Joel A. Barker

So, while you rest and rejuvenate this winter to make room for continued abundance next season, gather new seeds of possibility you can plant in the springtime. Humans are a force of nature and, as such,  our continued growth is crucial for a healthy and prosperous life.

Live. Learn. Grow. Repeat…Enjoy ❤

Keep it Simple,

  1. Your so right on this one. And often we observe something that isn’t flourishing and realize our hearts weren’t in it and it’s time to let it go and move on to something that inspires us. 🌟💛

    1. Thanks to much for your supportive comment Bella❣️🤗

      Yes, this metaphor helps me reorient myself when my expectations aren’t met. But, through practical assessment I realize I lacked sowing enough seeds, or the right seeds, for my expected results.

      At that point, it’s time to do better goal-setting and the plan to achieve them 🤩
