Keep Weeding that Garden

One of the toughest battles we will ever wage in our lifetimes is Overcoming the Negative.  To overcome the negative, we must wage an intense, lifelong battle against the constant downward pull.  If we relax, even for just a little bit, we will find that negativity will start pulling us down again.  Down into a place and a state of mind that we really don’t want to be in.  If we let negativity pull us down far enough, we will find that negativity has robbed us of everything we value in our lives.

Personal development guru Jim Rohn says that “Humility is a virtue; timidity is a disease.”  While it is a good thing to go through this life with humility, being timid is not.  When we are timid, we allow the bad things in this life take over our lives.  We have to be ready to stand up against things that we know are wrong and do the right thing.

If you spend 5 minutes complaining, you have just wasted 5 minutes.  If you continue to complain long enough, you will find that over time it will change you as a person and the change will not be for the positive.  The only thing you will be left with is a great sense of regret.

If you have ever had a garden, you will relate to this.  If you have one weed in your garden, it won’t do much.  One weed will never choke anything out.  As we all know though, weeds don’t come one at a time.  Weeds come in bunches.  If you don’t work at pulling the weeds out of your garden, you will soon find that you have more weeds than crops and your crops will get choked out and not grow.  Well think of your mind as a garden and think of negative thoughts as weeds trying to grow in your garden.

You cannot take the mild approach to the weeds in your mental garden.  You have got to hate weeds enough to kill them.  Weeds are not something you handle; weeds are something you devastate. 

Make the decision today, to not let the weeds of negative thoughts grow up in the garden of your mind and choke out all the positive things your mind is capable of.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
