Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant. – Robert Louis Stevenson
I recently wrote a LinkedIn post about different ways of viewing success and failure. It seemed to strike a chord with many achievers. (You can read it here.)
Success doesn’t always look like we think it will.
And if we limit our view of success to only one possible outcome, we may miss the nuances that could actually prove more meaningful and momentum-building.
This week, focus on taking the right actions – regardless of immediate outcomes.
With my coaching clients
, I often refer to the early stages of a goal as ‘seed-planting.’
We take the necessary actions – just like we water and nurture the soil – but we may not see any signs of growth for a while.
Does that mean we stop? Give up?
On the contrary.
Keep taking your purposeful actions. Seek out a coach and/or mentor for support and accountability. Trust that what’s happening ‘beneath the soil’ will result in a beautiful and bountiful harvest – even if it doesn’t look like it today!
If you’re an achiever ready to experience meaningful growth, let’s talk!
