Learn From The Farmer
By Dr Kem Thompson
When a farmer plants a crop, *as long as the soil is fertile*, he knows to *expect* a harvest in good time.
He knows to expect multiples of what he's planted.
He knows to patiently nurture the soil, keeping it watered and nourished while he waits to reap what he's sown.
Notice that he doesn't agitate over how soon his harvest shows up. He knows it's going to show up in good time, as long as the environment remains conducive. He doesn't worry about 'if' it's going to show up. He *knows* it will.
How does that apply to you?
Well let me ask you: have you ever felt discouraged because things weren't happening as fast as you'd like? Perhaps you're doing all the things you should: you've written your goals, made plans that you're following, faithfully affirming and visualizing daily, practicing daily gratitude, etc.
Still nothing seems to be happening, and you're starting to wonder if you should quit. Perhaps you're starting to wonder if your goal was worth going for after all. You've probably told yourself that the goal was too big for you anyway.
If this is you, listen: learn from the farmer. You don't know exactly when your harvest will manifest, but realize one thing: the moment you put that goal on paper and started working towards it, you set a chain of activity in motion - activity which will end up as your goal becoming real.
Think about it. When a farmer plants a seed, he doesn't see the shoot the next day does he? Yet the moment that seed is in the soil, the growth and manifestation process begins. Right at that instant. This initial phase is invisible to us on the outside but that doesn't change the fact that it's happening.
