A seed is always small, yet it has the potential to be a great farm and huge harvest. However, like the farmer knows, the process it takes for a small seed to yield an amazing harvest is not always an easy one; there are steps in between.
So, how to do turn your small seed into something huge and worthwhile, so that it may fulfill its potentials?
- Acknowledge that there is something of great value inside of you that has the potential to be huge. Believe that you have the seed of greatness in you. You need to believe it first before you can find it and nurture it.
- Find your seed. Go on a path of self-discovery. You were created with unique talents and combination of talents. Ask yourself questions and talk to people. Find out what you have, because you have something. You were created with one or more special talents and abilities. That ability of yours may look small and insignificant now, but it has the potential to become a huge farm
- Plant your seed. Once you have discovered the seed (ability) that you have, you must plant it. This simply means that you nurture it, protect it and use it. It’s not enough to find what you have; you must also use it and sharpen it. You must get better at that ability. Otherwise, it will never realise its potential for greatness.
- Pay the price of time. A seed does not turn into a big farm overnight. It does not turn into a huge tree in one day. When you plant a seed, you nurture it, water it and tend to it for a while before you begin to see and progress. But don’t worry, even though you cannot see much progress, it doesn’t mean that nothing is happening. Something is happening in the ground, you just can’t see it yet. One day, you’ll see a small plant that will grow into a firm stalk and eventually into a big tree. Things will happen in stages.
Your special gift won’t realise its huge potential in one day. It would take months and maybe even years for you to see its greatness. You just play your part and keep tending to it. One day, you will look and see that the small seed that you were holding in your hand has become a huge farm.
