As I sat finishing up my last Nutrient Management Plan for the season I listened to YouTube playing motivational videos, I wanted to summarize one that was inspiring to me.  As tough times are upon us, I sometimes wonder how will we manage to get through this.


This is from Earl Nightingale…


"Every one of us is the sum total of our own thoughts.   We become what we think about, for good or for bad.


Imagine our minds are like fertile land.  Us farmers have a choice of what to plant in it, whatever we choose, the land doesn’t care.  If we dig two holes and plant a potato seed in one and a thistle seed in the other then water and care for them, it will return thistles in just as much abundance as potatoes.  Remember, the land doesn’t care what we plant; it will reproduce any seed.  The human mind is far more fertile, far more incredible and mysterious than the land, but it works the same way.  It doesn’t care what we plant…success, failure, a concrete worthwhile goal or confusion, misunderstanding, fear, anxiety etc., but, whatever we plant will come back to us.


If this is true why don’t we use our minds more??   The truth is, we put little value on our mind, it came to us free; we were born with it.  Things we pay money for we value.  The things that are really worthwhile, are free…our mind, soul, body, hopes, dreams, ambitions, intelligence, love of family children and friends.  The things that cost us money are really very cheap and are replaceable.


Let’s make our mind work for us during this time of change and chaos.


What is it that you want?  Plant that seed in your mind, nourish it and it will grown into reality.


Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal"


– Early Nightingale
