For anything you want in life, you need to plant seeds.
If you have a dream but no means to get to it right now, you need to plant seeds.
Just like farmers who grow crops plant seeds so that their harvest can grow over time, you should do the same.
Want to have your own business but don’t have any clients or contacts? And can’t yet quit your job because you depend on that income? Start planting seeds. Start making contacts. Start putting yourself out there and attracting the attention of potential clients.
Want to make a career change but don’t yet have the skills or contacts to do it? Start planting those seeds. Start building your skills and making contacts.
It took me ten years to make a career change from menial admin work to full-time web developer/digital marketing tech expert for a nonprofit. Ten years.
But who cares that it took ten years? Maybe it’ll take 20 for you. That’s perfectly ok. Enjoy the journey along the way.
Nature’s law is that you need to plant seeds to reap any kind of harvest. Nothing happens overnight.
So start planting if you haven’t already.
