Is it possible to reap a crop from a piece of land that you did not sow? Is it possible to graduate from a reputable college without studying? Is it possible to participate in Olympics without lots of preparation? Is it possible to deliver a baby before conception and expectancy?
Why do we look for excuses when it comes to our relationships, jobs and businesses? Why do we blame others when our marriages fail? Why do we blame others when we lose our jobs? Why do we blame others when our businesses fail? Why are we so loyal to failure?
You can’t make a withdrawal where you did not deposit. What you invest in will give you returns in due course. If you want change, then make changes. Don’t expect something from nothing. If you don’t like what you have been reaping, change what you have been sowing. And don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant. Eventually, what you give, you get, ten times over.
A failed marriage is a result of the two partners involved. Marriage does not work; marriage is caused to work. Relationships don’t thrive naturally. Life is like a garden; you reap what you sow. People don’t just lose jobs unless the entire company is being wound up. If somebody was retained, why were you impacted? Businesses don’t succeed by chance; they succeed by design.
If you do what you’ve always done in your marriage, you can expect similar results. If you work the same way you’ve always worked, don’t expect miracles in your income. Maybe it’s time to do life differently. Maybe it’s time to listen to sound advice and accept correction. Maybe it’s time to study successful people. Maybe it’s time to read a new book and associate with a different breed.
