“What You Water will Grow”
Decide every second, every minute, every hour, every week, every month, every year ‘what you want to water’.
Whatever you pay attention to and focus on, gets bigger. It can be your beliefs, your thoughts, your words, your choices, your actions, your habits, your values, what you spend your time on, your goals, etc. The challenge is that what we water will grow in a positive or negative way.
Robin Sharma (one of the top 5 leadership experts in the world) asks: “Where are you self sabotaging in ways that you might not currently be aware of, and simply starting to think about answering that question will allow that subconscious self-sabotage to see the sunlight of your attention and your awareness”.
Shelly Lefkoe (Co-founder and President of the Lefkoe Insitute) states that all behaviour is belief driven. “Beliefs stop serving you when they begin to impact your behaviour and limit what you believe you can achieve or have in your life. No matter how many self-help books you read or courses you do, you won’t change your behaviour until you change your beliefs”.

Caroline Leaf (leading brain scientist & learning specialist) writes: “We are thinking beings. As we think, we feel, and as we feel, we choose. We are literally doing this every 10 seconds in response to an incoming stream of signals from our environment. The signals are from people, discussions, social media, relationships, work, texts, calls emails, the news–life in general. This thinking, feeling and choosing response is our mind-in-action. It is filtered through the complexity of our own experiences—our stored memories. These memories move into the conscious mind in response to these signals of life, influencing our perceptions and worldview. They therefore need to be analyzed in a deliberate and intentional way to see if the perspective they provide is healthy or toxic”.
John Demartini (leading authority on human behavior and personal development), author of The Values Factor, suggests that our unique purpose is to understand and fulfill our highest values. “Your highest values might change throughout your life, but they are still the very essence of you: what you’re drawn to, what you seek out and what you live for. People will naturally act in accordance with their own true highest values – spending money on what they truly value, spending time in ways that reflect what is most important to them”.
Phillipians 4:8 (AMP) says… “whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]”
