Sowing Seeds in Fertile Ground

In this episode of “Transform Your Mind to Transform Your Life,” Life Coach Myrna Young discusses the concept of, sowing seeds, in, fertile ground, and reaping a hundred times what you planted. Drawing inspiration from the parable of the farmer in Luke chapter 8, Myrna explains how this concept applies to various aspects of our lives, including career, relationships, personal development, and investment.

She emphasizes the importance of self-awareness and discernment in identifying the, fertile ground, for, sowing seeds. Myrna also highlights the need for patience and persistence, as the process of, sowing and reaping, is not instantaneous. She shares the example of the, bamboo tree, which takes five years to grow above the ground, illustrating the importance of perseverance.

Myrna further discusses the power of compound interest and how consistent and sustained action in the right direction can lead to exponential growth. She advises listeners to avoid wasteful efforts by evaluating where they invest their time and resources. By practicing deliberate and thoughtful actions, managing risk, and harnessing the power of compounded interest, individuals can unlock their potential for remarkable growth and fulfillment in various aspects of their lives.

Sowing seeds in fertile ground

In Luke chapter 8, Jesus tells a parable of a farmer who scattered his seed. Some of the seed landed on a footpath where the birds ate them, some landed on rocks and died from lack of water, and some fell among thorns and were choked. However, the seed that fell on, fertile ground, produced a crop a hundred times what was planted. This parable teaches us the importance of choosing our endeavors wisely and investing our time, energy, and resources in areas that hold the greatest potential for growth and returns.

So, how do we identify the, fertile ground, for, sowing seeds? It requires self-awareness and discernment. We must recognize our strengths, passions, and talents and align them with our goals and aspirations. By doing so, we increase the likelihood of success and fulfillment.

Just like a farmer plants a seed and patiently waits for it to grow, we must exhibit patience and persistence in our own lives. The process of, sowing and reaping, is not instantaneous. Farmers nurture their crops with water, sunlight, and care until the harvest season arrives. Similarly, in life, we must stay committed to our goals even when the results seem slow to materialize. We cannot expect to plant a seed and reap a harvest on the same day. Patience and persistence are key.

Sow seeds in fertile ground and get a bountiful harvest

Have you heard about the, bamboo tree? It takes five years for a bamboo seed to sprout above the ground. Imagine waiting for five years without seeing any visible progress. It's easy to give up. But just like the, bamboo tree, we must keep planting, watering, and giving our dreams attention. Sooner or later, we will reap a, daily harvest.

The power of compound interest is another important aspect of, sowing and reaping. Jesus said that if we plant in, fertile ground, we will reap a hundredfold. This is the power of compound interest. Just as a seed grows into a plant that produces more seeds, our efforts can yield compound returns over time. Consistent and sustained action in the right direction can lead to exponential growth, enabling us to reap rewards beyond our initial expectations.

Think about an apple orchard. One apple can become an orchard with acres and acres of fruit trees. This is a perfect example of, sowing and reaping, in the natural world. Similarly, in our lives, we can experience exponential growth and abundance if we sow our seeds in, fertile ground.

Sowing seeds in non fertile ground

However, not all soil is fertile, and not all endeavors are worth pursuing. It is essential to evaluate where we invest our time and resources to avoid wasting them on unproductive pursuits or unproductive people. Regularly assess the outcome of your efforts and be willing to adjust your strategy as needed.

In conclusion, sowing seeds, in, fertile ground, and reaping a hundredfold is a timeless reminder of the importance of deliberate and thoughtful actions in our journey towards success and abundance. By identifying our, fertile ground, practicing patience and persistence, managing risk, and harnessing the power of compounded interest, we can unlock our potential for remarkable growth and fulfillment in various aspects of our lives.

Conclusion

So, I encourage you to continue, sowing seeds, building, and pursuing your dreams. Remember, sooner or later, you will reap a harvest. If your ground is fertile, you will reap a hundred times what you planted.

Creating Your Life Consciously: Unlocking the Power of Thoughts, Words, and Action

In the book “Conversations with God,” a profound concept is explored: the idea that our sponsoring thoughts, words and actions are unconsciously shaping our reality. In this 5 min with coach Myrna coaching session, coach Myrna explores how we create, consciously and unconsciously. Our creation process as highlighted by God follows the sequence of Thought, Words, and Action. But God suggested a fascinating twist – the reversal of this sequence, where Action, Words, and Thought are prioritized as a means of reprogramming our minds and creating a more conscious life.

The Unconscious Path of Creation

1. Thought

Our thoughts are the seeds of creation. They initiate the process by setting the direction and tone for our lives. What we consistently think about, whether positive or negative, can manifest in our reality. As “Conversations with God” suggests, many of us unknowingly allow our unconscious thoughts to shape our experiences.

2. Words

Thoughts transform into words, and words hold immense power. What we speak aloud or even silently to ourselves can reinforce our thoughts, making them more real and influencing our emotions. Often, we express our beliefs and perceptions through our words, further cementing our reality. I have always written my goals out and spoken them into the atmosphere. That is why, life coaching, works so well. You come into the session with a thought, you speak to your coach and then your coach gives you actions to take. This is the creation process, this is how you make, smart goals

3. Action

The culmination of creation is in our actions. Our actions are a direct result of our thoughts and words. They manifest the tangible aspects of our lives and shape our experiences. The cycle of thought, words, and action perpetuates itself, often maintaining unconscious patterns. Tony Robbins teaches us that we shouldn’t just take action but we must take, massive action.

Reprogramming Your Mind Consciously

Action: Thoughts words then action

In the journey of, conscious creation, we begin with action. By taking deliberate and mindful actions aligned with our desired reality, we disrupt the autopilot mode of unconscious living. Action becomes the catalyst for change. So, for example. If you think you have lack, then you will always live in lack. Your thoughts create your reality but if you give away the little you have, that action of giving creates your abundance because it tells the mind you have more than enough. The first time I heard this was from my pastor. He needed money to close on a property and he said that God told him to give $10,000 away. He did and the universe gave him in return $50,000.

Words comes after thought

Conscious words come next. When we speak or affirm our intentions and aspirations, we reinforce our chosen path. These words serve as a powerful tool for reprogramming our minds and aligning them with our conscious goals. God made the point the useless affirmations would not do the trick, but giving thanks for something we are asking for works. For example, Lord I thank you for giving me this amazing husband. I love you.

Thought words and action

With action and words in place, the final element is thought. By giving conscious attention to our thoughts, we reinforce the new reality we wish to create. We become more aware of the thoughts that no longer serve us and replace them with thoughts that empower and uplift.
Let’s say that you are living in lack. You are in the famine. I heard once that if you have a piggy bank with change in it you are richer than 95% of the people in the world. There is so much you can be grateful for. Start giving away $1 to homeless people on the street that is the action, tell anyone who would listen that by this time next month you will be living in overflow, the thought is gratitude for life for breath for food in the fridge, for the basics, for love!

Conclusion

The book “Conversations with God” provides a valuable insight into the role of thought, words, and action in shaping our reality. By reversing this sequence, we can actively reprogram our minds and create our lives consciously. This shift empowers us to break free from unconscious patterns and take control of our destinies, ultimately leading to a more intentional and fulfilled life.

Scripture Luke 15:22 to 30

“But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.

Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. ‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’

The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!’”

Introduction to Parental Favoritism

The, parable of the Prodigal Son, teaches us about love, forgiveness, and the complexities of, parental favoritism, in family dynamics and why we should, avoid, parental favoritism, with our children. In it, we can find valuable lessons on how parents can avoid, parental favoritism, among their children, fostering a harmonious and supportive family environment.

Avoid Parental Favoritism by giving children Equal Love and Attention

“Parents can avoid, parental favoritism, by showing children you love them with gifts and affection. It is not just important to leave them an inheritance, children need evidence of your love. Why would a rich father never throw his sons a party and kill a goat or a cow? Parents should ensure that each child receives, equal love and attention, regardless of their circumstances.”

The, parable of the Prodigal Son, highlights the importance of equal love and attention among children. The father in the story, despite the mistakes and shortcomings of his younger son, welcomed him back with open arms and celebrated his return. This act of, love and acceptance, should serve as a reminder to parents that each child deserves to feel loved and valued, regardless of their past actions or current circumstances thus avoiding, parental favoritism.

Recognize Individual Needs

“Each child is unique and has different needs. Just as the father in the story recognized his sons' distinct situations. He had one son who wanted his money now and the other son who was willing to do whatever his father asked and that meant working in the fields every day. Parents should pay attention to what each child requires for their, growth and development.

The, parable of the Prodigal Son, emphasizes the importance of recognizing and addressing the individual needs of each child. The father in the story understood that his sons had different desires and aspirations, and he responded to them accordingly. Parents should strive to understand their children's unique qualities, interests, and goals, and provide the necessary support and guidance to help them thrive. By doing so, parents can create an environment where each child feels seen, heard, and understood and avoid the, favoritism bias.

Introduction to Lazarus:

In the book of Luke, the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus offers a profound insight into the concepts of, Heaven and Hell, highlighting the unbridgeable chasm that separates them.

1.  Mindset # 1: The Importance of Compassion:

“The first thing we need to develop is a, compassionate heart. Very few people have this naturally, they walk by beggars in the street and their wallets are full with money. Just as the rich man ignored Lazarus, this parable teaches us the importance of showing, compassion and empathy, toward those in need. Small, acts of kindness, can make a significant difference in someone's life.”

Compassion is a fundamental aspect of leading a fulfilling and meaningful life. It is easy to become consumed by our own desires and overlook the suffering of others. However the, parable  of the Rich Man and Lazarus reminds us that ignoring the needs of those around us can have lasting consequences. By cultivating a compassionate heart and actively seeking opportunities to help those in need, we can make a positive impact on the lives of others and avoid the pitfalls of a, self-centered existence.

2. Mindset # 2: Material Wealth vs. Spiritual Riches:

“The story illustrates that material wealth does not determine one's standing in the afterlife. It also makes most rich people miserable in this life! Instead, it emphasizes the value of spiritual riches, such as kindness, love, and humility.”

In a world that often equates success with material wealth, the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus challenges this notion. It reminds us that if we want to experience, heaven or hell on earth, we need to recognize that true richness lies in the intangible qualities that we possess, such as kindness, love, and humility. While material wealth may provide temporary comfort and pleasure, it does not guarantee happiness or fulfillment. By prioritizing spiritual riches over material possessions, we can lead more meaningful lives and cultivate a sense of inner peace that transcends the boundaries of this world and allows us to experience, Heaven on earth.

3.  Mindset shift # 3: The Consequences of Ignoring the Needs of Others becomes your hell on earth:

“Ignoring the needs of those around us can have lasting consequences. The rich man's indifference to Lazarus led to his own suffering, serving as a reminder that our actions can impact our future and a life of, hell on earth.  Life is cyclical; one day you are up, and the next day you are down. Don't burn down your bridges; someday you may need to cross over them again. The parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus, serves as a cautionary tale about the consequences of turning a blind eye to the suffering of others.

The rich man's indifference to Lazarus ultimately led to his own suffering in the afterlife. This story reminds us that our actions have ripple effects that can shape our future experiences. By recognizing the interconnectedness of all beings and actively seeking to alleviate the suffering of others, we can create a more harmonious and compassionate world.

4.  Mindset shift # 3: The Great Chasm of Life Choices separates Heaven or Hell on Earth:

Building Trust: Why Jesus Asked Simon for a Push

Building trust, is essential to building relationships. The Bible teaches us that after Jesus was baptized, he was filled with the Holy Spirit and performed miracles and healed the sick with one touch. So why did Jesus ask Simon for a push when he clearly could do it himself? In the episode of 5 min Fridays with Coach Myrna I want to look at how we can establish trust by, asking for help.

The Familiar bible Story:

This biblical account in the New Testament, found in the Gospel of Luke (Luke 5:1-11), narrates how Jesus met Simon, a fisherman, by the Sea of Galilee. Simon had been out fishing all night without success. Jesus approached, stepped into Simon's boat, and asked him to push out a little from the shore so that He could teach the crowd gathered there. Simon agreed, and Jesus taught from the boat.

The Unexpected Request: Another way of building trust

It's essential to grasp the significance of this seemingly mundane request. By, Jesus asking Simon for a push, Jesus established a connection of trust with him. He didn't immediately launch into a sermon or a call to discipleship. Instead, he met Simon's immediate need, displaying empathy and practicality. In a similar way Pastors know they need to feed the body of their sheep before they feed the soul. We can’t pay attention to the word if our bellies are hungry.

The Metaphor of the Push:

This request for a push can be seen as a metaphor for the way Jesus interacts with all of us. Before inviting us to follow Him, He often first meets us at our point of need, offering assistance, understanding, and guidance. This approach signifies Jesus' concern for our well-being and His willingness to meet us where we are and teaches us, how to ask for help.

After building trust: The Call to Discipleship:

After teaching from the boat, Jesus astonished Simon by instructing him to let down the nets for a catch. Despite Simon's initial doubts, he followed Jesus' guidance and witnessed an incredible catch of fish. Building trust, allows others to obey your instructions. It was at this moment of abundance that Jesus formally called Simon, James, and John to be His disciples, saying, “Don't be afraid; from now on, you will fish for people.”

Conclusion:

Check out how the master operates. First, he establishes or, builds trust, by, asking for help, then he performs a, miracle of abundance, and when we are in disbelief, he says follow me if you want more.

The story of, Jesus asking Simon for a push, before calling him to be a disciple holds a powerful lesson for all believers. It reminds us that Jesus meets us in our everyday lives, cares for our immediate needs, and only then extends His invitation to follow Him. This approach embodies the compassion and wisdom of Jesus' ministry, showing that His call is founded on a deep understanding of our human experience.

The Stone the Builder Rejected, Now Cornerstone

The stone the builder rejected now cornerstone. This metaphor mirrors the human experience. Throughout history, visionaries, innovators, and creators have often encountered resistance when introducing novel ideas, unorthodox methods, or unconventional paths.
Jesus told the disciples a story of a man planting a vineyard, building a wall around it with a lookout tower and then leased it to tenants. During harvest he sent one of his servants to collect his share of thd crop but they beat him and send him back empty handed. He kept sending more servants and they beat them up too. He decided to send his only son and they beat him and killed him as well. Then Jesus said “the stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.

Rejected children beome the cornerstone

I grew up hearing my grandmother quote this scripture and I seen it play out in families. Parents favoring one child and rejecting another and that child they rejected became the cornerstone who looked after them when they get sick or old and feeble but today I want to focus on this scripture as a, personal development tool.
This simple yet powerful saying is a reminder that what may be initially overlooked or dismissed can later prove to be essential, transformative, and foundational.
This metaphor mirrors the human experience. Throughout history, visionaries, innovators, and creators are often rejected when introducing novel ideas, unorthodox methods, or unconventional paths, then these rejected ideas become the main cornerstone.

Some rejected stones who later became the cornerstone

Consider the pioneering minds who introduced revolutionary technologies, art forms, or philosophies. Many faced skepticism and dismissal, only to have their, rejected “stones,” later become the bedrock of progress. From the Wright brothers‘ ridiculed dream of flight to the skepticism surrounding the early internet, countless examples remind us that the seeds of innovation can initially be met with doubt.
In personal journeys, too, the metaphor holds weight. People who defy societal norms or follow their passions in defiance of conventional wisdom often face rejection or misunderstanding. Yet, history has shown that those who stay true to their convictions, despite the initial rejection they encounter, can eventually shape new paradigms and redefine success.

Overlooked stones into cornerstones

The phrase's universality extends to relationships and personal growth. People who have felt rejected or marginalized can harness the, power of resilience, transforming their perceived weaknesses into sources of strength. Through determination and self-belief, individuals can evolve from, overlooked “stones” into cornerstones, of their own narratives, becoming inspirations to others who walk a similar path.
As we navigate a world of rapid change and evolving norms, the wisdom behind, “The stone the builder rejected, now become the cornerstone,” remains as relevant as ever. It encourages us to embrace the unconventional, to view rejection as an opportunity for growth, and to recognize that what society may initially dismiss can ultimately redefine and reshape the very foundation of our lives.

Conclusion

In essence, the Stone the Builder Rejected, Now the Cornerstone,  challenges us to value the overlooked, honor the unconventional, and find strength in our resilience. Just as the cornerstone provides stability and support, so too can our, rejected stones, lead us toward the solid ground on which we build our futures.

The Dangers of Holding Grudges: Lessons from Herodias and John

In the intricate tapestry of human relationships, grudges can often emerge as toxic threads that poison the bonds we share with others. Holding grudges can distort our perceptions, obstruct our ability to make sound decisions, and tether us to feelings of helplessness.

Download the podcast here:

https://2.gum.fm/https://pdcn.co/e/https://chrt.fm/track/897G7/https://verifi.podscribe.com/rss/p/www.buzzsprout.com/1761155/13492937-the-dangers-of-holding-grudges-lessons-from-herodias-and-john.mp3?download=true

Introduction

The Bible tells us in Mark chapter 6 that Herodias, Herod’s wife, bore a grudge against John and wanted to kill him; but without Herod’s approval she was powerless. So she waited like a serpent for her time and it came when her daughter pleased the king with her dance and he promised her anything she wanted. Her mother told her to ask for John’s head.

This plays out every day in the modern world. You say something quite innocently and someone takes offense and secretly plots to harm you.

Nobody is cutting off anyone’s head today, but a well placed word in the right ears and you don’t get the promotion or your best friend spreads something you told her in confidence to shame you.

The Story of Herodias grudge against John:

Mark chapter 6 introduces us to the complex dynamic between Herod Antipas, the ruler of Galilee, and, John the Baptist, a fearless preacher and prophet. Herod had married Herodias, his brother's wife, which was against Jewish law and morality. John fearlessly denounced this union, prompting Herodias to harbor a deep-seated grudge against him.

Herodias' Grudge and Its Consequences:

Herodias' grudge against John festered in her heart, eventually leading to a chilling decision. The accumulation of her anger and resentment compelled her to hatch a sinister plot to kill John. However, her nefarious intentions were thwarted by a crucial factor—Herod's reluctance to give his approval for John's execution.

The Helplessness of Resentment:

Herodias' desire to harm John reveals a stark reality about grudges: they have the potential to blind individuals to reason and lead them down treacherous paths. And sometimes not always the weapon they formed against you boomerangs right back at them.

Holding grudges can distort our perceptions, obstruct our ability to make sound decisions, and tether us to feelings of helplessness. It is a useless emotion. You have heard the saying that unforgiveness is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. Herodias was given a gift when Herod asked her daughter what she wanted if not she would have sat with her grudge and suffered because she was powerless to anything about it.

I said that to say the person you hold a grudge against is going on with their lives and probably having a better one than yours. Just as Herodias' resentment rendered her powerless without Herod's consent, our own animosities can leave you trapped in a, cycle of negativity,  and inaction.

Forgiveness as a Path to Healing grudges:

Forgiveness is the way out. Nobody ever does anything they believe is wrong. Chances are whatever they did was not personal. By choosing to let go of grudges, we free ourselves from the shackles of bitterness and open the door to personal growth and reconciliation. Forgiveness is not a sign of weakness, but a courageous step towards breaking the, cycle of resentment.

Conclusion:

The tale of Herodias and John serves as a potent reminder of the dangers inherent in holding onto grudges. It urges us to reflect on the impact of resentment on our lives and relationships, and encourages us to choose forgiveness as a powerful means of transcending negativity. Just as Herodias' grudge proved to be her downfall, our own capacity for forgiveness can lead us towards greater understanding, empathy, and a more harmonious existence.
