Most of us can understand that there is a science or art to creating and cultivating a healthy and abundant harvest… no matter what we are attempting to produce. Year after year we go through the motions to achieve a major dream or desire we would like to experience in our life. Here are 4 steps for maximizing the harvest that you have been wanting but just didn’t know how to get.
Step One – Plot, Plan, Prepare
A good farmer tills the field before it is planted. Start with your own questions that you have about your plan by writing or typing them out… as most questions contain their answers within them. For example, consider the following:
– What do you want to create, produce, or accomplish? If a farmer were to plant carrot seeds he/she’s going to get carrots! Do you want a new relationship? Is that relationship business or personal? How will this new relationship blend with the other aspects of your life?
– Where will you need to plant your seeds… in your career, in your home, in your physical health, maybe in your social life? A good farmer knows location, location, location! Broadcasting seeds everywhere scatters your energies in too many directions! The more concentrated and organized you are the more focus you can sustain on the growing process and outcome.
– How much time will you need to devote to your desired harvest and when will you do what is needed or necessary? A good farmer has a regular schedule set up with the appointed times and days to stay on track.
– What basic tools will you need to get started…equipment, clothing, maybe a coach/guidance? A good farmer knows that having the right tools can make all the difference in ease and quality in the production process. Keep this simple. You can always acquire the tools you need along the way. Don’t let this stop you from starting!
Step 2 – Get Started Now
It is time now to get started… now…not later…not tomorrow…now! Take that first step into the field! Plant those seeds by creating daily affirmations around your intentions for your harvest. Read them regularly and post them around your frequented living spaces. Keep taking steps into the field!
Step 3 – Affection is key
Vigilant and diligent maintenance of your crop, doing whatever is needed and necessary to keep your crop alive and healthy, including a regular watering of patience. Cultivate all laziness, complacency, negative thoughts or distractions that may be draining all the nutrients from your creative process. Dis-ease can spread quickly if unattended!
Make good and clear decisions along the way in what stays and what goes, and stick to your decisions once they are made! Evaluate where you may need to be more flexible as day-to-day activities may require you to rotate your schedule around a bit so you can remain on track with your planned priorities. Don’t let fear or doubt become an excuse at any time along the way!
Step 4 – Harvest Your Outcome!
Enjoy the fruits of your hard work and devoted labor! Celebrate your success and achievement of your plan of action!
Timing is everything… so what are YOU waiting for?
