Take a seed out of any food we are eating and place it on the table.
Don’t do anything to it and let it sit there for a few weeks.
Do you know what happens?
Do you know why? Because there needs to be some action to create change. There needs to be some focused effort for growth to take place.
That seed is a metaphor for every idea we have in our heads that we want to pursue but we don’t.
It just sits there. It toys with us. It slowly dies each day.
But what happens when put the tiniest amount of effort toward that seed?
If it’s laid inside a wet paper towel it’ll start to sprout.
If it’s buried in some soil it could plant some roots.
If it’s placed outside in the sun it might start flowering soon enough…Just like our ideas.
They just need a little love. A little attention. A little light to be shined upon them.
And then, in time, they can become something we never could quite fathom.
They blossom into the most beautiful thing we’ve ever seen.
It’s real. It’s spectacular. It’s ours.
We’ve created it and it should give us the courage to create again.
One small step at a time is all it takes.
But we have to take the first step otherwise we might be wondering if this thing will ever turn into anything special.
We just have to give it a chance to grow.
