Quote for the Week

"Your thoughts are the seeds of your destiny. Cultivate them carefully."

Your day to day thoughts greatly influence where you are heading in life. If you feel the world is out to get you or that a dark cloud is always over head then that is the reality you will experience. On the other hand, if you see a world full of opportunity and full of learning opportunities than that is the reality you will experience.

I am not at all saying that you can ignore challenges and the obstacles that will pop up. I am not trying to be all “Pollyanna”, but the fact is, how you think on a daily basis will determine how you deal with the challenges you will face. We all get knocked down. The choice is to wallow in the mud and strew about it, or to get up and learn from the experience.

It is not always easy to get up. I know that. We all know that. We have all dealt with problems but with a positive mindset you can more easily accept what has happened, process it mentally, learn from it and then move forward. Every experience you go through has some thing to teach you. Whether or not you are open to the lesson is the difference between ultimately finding success or missing out on all the bounty life has to offer.

Farmers care for their fields and cultivate their seeds and crops very carefully. There livelihood and their very lives’ depend on it. Your success and your overall happiness depend upon how carefully you cultivate your thoughts on a daily basis. Weed out the negative thoughts. Weed out the anger. You will find life is much easier when you leave all the baggage behind and focus on what you have to offer the world and what the world has to offer you.
