Isn’t it amazing! One sunflower seed. Planted, buried. We usually bury what’s dead, except if it’s a seed. A seed is alive. It is buried alive.
This one sunflower seed produced a huge beautiful flower.
This flower, when harvested weighed 1.9 kgs.
It contained 250 grams of seeds.
I didn’t try to count how many seeds that was.
Applying this principle in our lives is a key to succeeding.
Our thoughts, emotions, anxieties, lack of self-belief, what other people think of us, stops us from letting go and achieving.
If I care too much about what others are thinking, I am focusing all my energy on not letting go. I am bound to underperform.
If I lack self-confidence, I am holding on to who I believe I am. I barely perform.
If I let go of my self-doubts and chose to follow my call, regardless of what others think, I am giving myself permission to die like that grain, so I can produce much fruit, so I can succeed.
