What Financial Future Are You Planting?

Have you ever planted red pepper seeds and been surprised when you don’t get strawberries? You might be thinking, “No way, Dani!” I hate to say it, but you might be.
And trust me on this, majority of the nation expects something for nothing. You absolutely expect a certain crop without having planted the specific seed for it.
The thing about growing crops, you are always going to reap what you sow! And it doesn’t matter what your upbringing, race, parents or circumstances may have been. If you plant corn, you are going to get corn!
What Are You Doing With Your Seeds?
Not only are your spending habits a seed, but money itself is a SEED. Maybe you’ve been to scared to break into the real estate market, even though you know people are still making big money in it. Take the guess work out of property investments and plant your money seeds.
If you are sowing seeds of debt, spending everything you make and investing in items with depreciating value, you will NOT reap the crop of financial independence, becoming debt-free or wealth.
This concept goes closely with one of the Laws of Success. I call it the Law of Promotion. Essentially, if you are faithful with the small things you will be made ruler over much.
Most people will squander what they have, thinking the grass is always greener on the other side. How often do you wish, “If only I made more money…” or “If only I won the lottery…” so you could pay off all your debt and become financially independent?
But the truth is, it doesn’t matter how much money you make if your habits remain the same. I can promise, if you are sowing seeds of poor financial habits and debt, there is no paycheck in the world that will stop those crops from growing up and bearing fruit in your life.
You have to prosper with what you have NOW. You have to be faithful with the amount you make today, not the amount you want to make. What seeds are you planting in your financial life right now?
If you don’t like the financial fruit in your life – debt, stress and an abundance of JUNK, look at the seeds you are planting. What you feed will flourish and what you ignore will die! Start watering those seeds of wise financial choices. Put more into savings instead of buying that extra handbag. Cut out junk food from your grocery list and put that money toward unpaid bills.
