If it’s to be it’s up to me.” That theme ran through my mind for years. I’m in charge. I have to make it happen. If I succeed it’s because I worked hard enough.

So the truth is the opposite I used to think was if I’m not in charge then I’m just a victim. And I felt empowered by the fact that I wasn’t a victim of my circumstance. I was in control! I was taking action! I was blah blah blah.

I was also stressed out. I was often wondering what I was doing wrong? I was disappointed if it didn’t happen as quickly as I thought it should and I put a lot of undue pressure and stress on myself. In fact, I would beat myself up for not being good enough. Have you done that too?

Well here is the good news. The life-changing, earth-shattering truth. You are not in control to a large degree, of your success. You are the farmer but you don’t produce the harvest. God will bring the rain and water the right seeds. He will bring forth into your life and business that which you need to grow.

It’s a relief right? NOW to be CLEAR, YOU have to PLANT the seeds consistently. You have to plant GOOD SEEDS consistently. You are still responsible for that.

Today what do I believe to be the opposite of that thinking “if it’s to be it’s up to me”? I’m not in charge. I don’t have to make it happen. If I succeed it’s because some of the seeds I generously planted fell on fertile soil and sprouted and that was not of my doing.

Today you can take a deep breath and plant the seeds and not worry about when the rain will come. You don’t have to stress about which seeds will sprout. In time, the right ones will. And worrying about the wrong ones. Pointless.

Go plant! Generously. Good seeds. Good karma. Spread love and hope and joy into the world. Be the best version of you. Be amazing. Lift up others and listen to what they need. Offer solutions. Let them decide (that’s the harvest you don’t control…remember that).
