"You cannot sow and harvest in the same season"
People often give up on their dreams when things just don’t go the way as expected. We tend to be impatient and expect immediate results when we take steps forward.
Know that life is not presented to you on a tray. We need to be persistent and be happy with the outcome of every step we take.
When you have a dream, a new idea to proceed in life, you plant a seed in your mind.
We all know very well that when you plant a seed, you need to water it, feed it in order for the seed to grow. You need to give it all your attention and love. Same goes for your ideas and dreams. When you do so, after a short while you will see a germ. It is still very fragile and needs all attention and care. If you neglect the germ for only a few days, it will die. You will then have to start all over again. Your previous efforts will have been for nothing.
Sometimes we tend to give up. The daily worries begin to weigh. We wonder if this is what we really want as we cannot harvest yet. Well, you know very well that you cannot sow and harvest in the same season. If you want to reap the benefits of your hard work, you will have to be patient and persistent.
It will take months, and a lot of dedication from you, to let the seed grow into a plant. Sometimes you will have to remove certain branches or leaves to keep the plant healthy. Same applies for your life. You sometimes need to take decisions, distance yourself from things or even people in order to grow. Maybe there are obstacles on your way to growth. So, although it might hurt, remove them as they are rotten and are influencing you in a negative way. They will hinder the further growth. I know, pruning can be painful but is inevitable for growth. Don’t see it as a loss but as a great gain in life.
