HAVE A DREAM AND PLANT A SEED
i read an interesting story in Rob Parsons book; The heart of Success - Making it in business without losing in life. It is an encouragement of how to cultivate this habit of great achievers. It was a residential conference of business leaders where Rob Parson wasa speaker. At the end of this meeting, one of the speaker was to round up the outcome of the meeting and called on the participant to a challenge concerning what they have heard for the past twenty four hours. He reminded them of how the gifted speakers have impacted their lives in meaningful ways. Seeds were handed out to the participants with tiny clay pots with bags of earth. Every delegate was asked to take a step of faith and plant the seed. He said that if you want a vision to grow there are three conditions: first you have a seed , then you need to actually plant it and third, it helps if you remember to water it occasionally!
One by one every delegate come forward and planted a seed. (Not forgetting the third injunction - watering the seed for them to have a full plant). But one man held back. According to Rob parson, he collected the his pot, scooped little earth into the pot, collected the seed, but slipped his seed into his pocket.
Why did this man refuse to plant his seed out of the forty delegates? Was the task demeaning, therefore he did not want to dirty his hand. May be he thought, 'I will do it later.'
Forty people walked out of that room having planted a dream - and one man left with the dream on his pocket?
Does this story sound familiar? Today how can you make your dream a reality? What action can you take today, towards the realization of your dream?
