Brian Braudis’ 1-Minute Morning Memo: October 31, 2016 – The Law of Harvest

Law of Harvest. When you find yourself exhausted, grumpy or at the end of your rope do you know precisely why or how you arrived there? We often miscalculate the toll acrimony takes on our daily life.

Case in point, many people were surprised to hear the results of a Pew Research Center survey of 4,500 adults where the recent election activity has left a wake of rancor.

  • 59% describe their online interactions as stressful and frustrating.
  • 49% say the conversations on social media are angrier.
  • 53% say they are less respectful and 49% say they are less civil then their conversations in other parts of their lives.
  • 38% of Democrats and 37% of Republicans describe themselves as being worn out by political nastiness. ….hum,…Seems we have more in common than we allow ourselves to admit.

We think we can easily take the negativity thrown around so callously….maybe? But I ask what are you doing to replenish and fulfill yourself in a positive and productive way?

If all you cultivate is nasty, you’ll spew out nastiness. The Law of Harvest is as much a tangible law as The Law of Gravity. A farmer will get precisely what he plants—corn produces corn and weeds beget more weeds.

The same applies to all of life. You simply can’t get around it. You reap what you sow.  Ask yourself, what am I cultivating that has given me the current state of mind?

You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.-James Allen
