We have come to the long overdue conclusion of the “Reaping what you sow” series, and I must say it’s been quite a journey. To remind everyone, these are notes-to-self that I create for my own consumption, but why not share with the rest of the world in case someone is going through the same, right?
Over the past few months, we have touched on different topics and lessons drawn from some of my own personal experiences. The purpose of this series was to sow a seed of positivity in my life, a sense of responsibility and accountability, and also to have something to look back at one day when I’m feeling stuck. Now that we’ve come to the end, it is important to sum up everything and see how I’ve progressed over the course of the series.
Vision – know who you are and what you want to accomplish in life. Set that image right in front of you where you can access it easily. Focus on only that, but don’t forget that many are the plans of man, but the will of the Lord prevails. Also don’t forget to help others and take time to rest, recuperate and rejuvenate. When you’re assured of who you are and where you’re headed, it’s harder for outside influences to change that (eg watching others succeed or doing something different to what you’re doing, but seemingly more fun. Once you’ve established where you’re headed, put in the hard work because hard work sure does pay off!
Comparison – salt and sugar have different purposes. You don’t really season meat with sugar, neither do you sweeten tea with salt. Everyone has their purpose, so stay in your lane and don’t compare yourself to others. (Easier said than done)
Mentality – what you perceive you conceive. Change your mentality to have a generally positive outlook on life. Renew your mind and immerse yourself in The Word of The Lord.
Finally, believe in yourself, work hard and watch yourself yield the fruits you hoped for and more. Wishing you a productive and successful life!
