The law of harvest is to reap more than you sow. Sow an act, and you reap a habit. Sow a habit and you reap a character. Sow a character and you reap a destiny. – James Allen
Maybe it is the overly analytical part of me, but I really like it when you can take a simple truth like this and dissect it more like James Allen did in the quote above.
In Earl Nightingale’s “Strangest Secret” he makes the point that our minds are built for growing thoughts so we must be careful what we plant. Our minds are like fertile soil that will grow a weed as readily as a beautiful flower.
Plant worries of ill health and your mind will build those up until you are actually ill.
Plant thoughts of wealth and happiness and your mind will build that reality around you.
Plant thoughts of want and need and before you know it you will be behind on your bills.
The law of the harvest works in all areas of our lives, but the starting point is usually in our own thoughts.
Make a conscious effort today to be careful of what you are planting.
Make it a great day.
Looking for something positive to plant today, here are a few of Jake’s suggestions, please feel free to share some of your own.
Norman Vincent Peale’s books – in particular “The Power of Positive Thinking”
Dale Carnegie’s “How to Stop Worrying” and “How to Win Friends and Influence People”
Listen to Jim Rohn’s “Art of Exceptional Living”
These are just a couple that have had a major impact on me, I would love to hear what has made an impact on you.
