“The greatest form of maturity is at harvest time. This is when we must learn how to reap without complaint if the amounts are small and how to reap without apology if the amounts are big.” Jim Rohn
The harvest time is not from season to season ….. When we chunk it down, it is from month to month, week to week, day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute… the moment.
So on planting a seed and leaving it be to the end season provides a range of harvest outcomes. As opposed to on planting the seed, watering it, weeding the field, fertilizing, keep the birds flocks or other predators away from it … basically nurturing it every moment of the day is what produces the size of the harvest.
Some have been able to capsule this to being their best and live and work, the fullest every moment of their life, thereby producing that required harvest, while others are only able to capture a smaller part and still others a lesser part.
All of that harvest is achievements and the result to be admired and acknowledged. The one that is able to view that harvest this very moment and see how better he /she can do it the next moment, and the next, and the next and tomorrow, and the next and the next day is self-progress, development and achievement…. Or put in lay man’s terms is success.
If we fall short of not getting into this pattern, reflect to see if it important, should it be done, what is in it for you to do so?… surprising the answer in most instance would be towards the affirmative.
It is interesting, when this happens, it triggers something within the self, that produces that chemical within oneself, to make one happy, to make one motivated, to make one more emphatic, to make one more, more this and more that, and the list is endless.
If these are the outcomes from such a simple exercise, then why not spend some time once a week just to reflect…and think?
Are you satisfied with your harvest?
In which areas of your life would you like to sow, to invest, to…? To….? To…? more time?
Just take a minute size step, in reflecting on that goal. What does it take to tune up for the moment to scale the next rung of the ladder and see how life turns around?
