There are so many lessons to learn while spending time in nature that it’s almost humbling, to say the very least.
From the time I first pitched my business idea, as part of the Young Innovators Challenge, it has been like one continuous series of events, to get everything up and running.
Over the last few months, I have kept my head “in the sand” as I focused on building infrastructure, as well as developing and refining systems.
I have to admit, I am quite happy with the progress so far, but something was missing. Then it hit me… While I was in the garden no less.
This business idea is a lot bigger than me, it is more important to the development of the community, the protection and regeneration of the environment and all my wildlife friends.
When I viewed it as a business, all I saw was another “dead end”, glorified job, without lasting rewards. Then, as I was thinning out some seedlings I realized, nature has it’s own time table. The most we can do is allow it to grow as it wishes.
This business was trying to grow before my eyes, it was no longer only about money, it had now become a living project.
The more I thought about it, viewing it as a project, it seemed like everything had become ever so clear. I now look forward to completing these tiny daily tasks, as they bring me closer and closer to the completion of this phase. With each task completed, I can feel the project grow a bit stronger, and the distant vision become even clearer.
It’s a mazing what a little mind shift can do. At the same time, it’s really rewarding to see the fruits of my labour; they taste great too.
As the saying goes, “if you are going to try something, do it all the way or don’t even start.”
You may not know with 100% certainty where it will take you, but if you stick with it and do your best, then a way will open to you; even though it may not be what you expected.
Success comes to those who know what they want, make the decision to get it… then take massive action.
