“A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then, an abundance of useless weed-seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.”

Well, how does our garden grow?
We all know when left unattended gardens and flower beds fill with weeds which overtake and choke the life and beauty out of the gardens and flower beds.
I remember my aunt weeding her flower beds every weekend. The flowers were always beautiful and colorful. As we weed out the negatives and fears that reside in our mind, we blossom into a beautiful and colorful expression of a life of abundance, beauty, prosperity and success. Life is vibrant and so are we.
So, what about us? Are we ready to weed our mental garden and let the beauty and vibrancy of life appear?
Just as in weeding a garden we start in one area and take it one step at a time.
Perhaps as we think about where to begin we have a revelation of what is going on that is constricting our living and receive an inspiration or two on how to move forward…finding the inner fortitude of, “I am not going to take this anymore” attitude; which is the impetus to jettison the garbage, weedy, thoughts and beliefs that have been hindering our blossoming success.
Life, as we all know, takes us at our own valuation. As we weed out those strangling thoughts and beliefs we see a ray of light and improvements arising in our life. We fertilize and water our mental garden with positive thoughts and blossoming new concepts about ourselves and our world.
No one can make us change. It is our decision whether we want to or not. When we finally get tired of existing and decide to step up and forward to new and more profitable ways of being and living, then and only then will we initiate the weeding process and change our life.
Our starting point is positive affirmations, using them daily and throughout the day as needed for positive re-enforcement. Visualization is a technique we can use to help us see where we want to be and enjoying the successful results. Handing ourselves a congratulatory bouquet of roses is a way of showing our love and appreciation of ourselves in this endeavor.
Affirm your self-acceptance, self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth. You were not created for mediocrity but for success. You are meant to be prosperous and to live well.
We are more than adequate to be successful, no matter what we have been told, no matter where we are in life. Many years ago I attended a talk by Og Mandino. He was at one time successful, ended up living on the streets, went to end his life but…he became a well-known author and speaker. There are those who read this blog who have been down and out, on the skids, and are now successful and mentoring others along the way.
How many inspirational people do you know other than yourself? Inspirational people are all around us if we but look and listen. Look at your life; what you have been through, what you have accomplished, what you have survived.
You are a phenomenal representation of life. Don’t ever forget it and don’t ever give up on yourself! Give yourself the credit due you. Yeah, we’ve all had mistakes and problems which have occurred in our life, which was in the past. Let go of the past, and move on with living and flowering into a new vibrant exciting you. Wallowing in the muck and mire of the past is not profitable; learn from it and move forward in living your life.
Look forward to the day, look forward to new beginnings. Remember, you are a winner and never forget it.
Life is wonderful and so are you!!
Your Affirmation: “I am a success now and no-thing can stop me from having and accomplishing greater good in my life.”
