You reap what you sow–How this idea can radically change your life

神 爱 你,并 且 为 你 的 生 命 有 一 奇 妙 的 计 划。

Do you believe that you reap what you sow? In other words do you actually get the results that you caused to come about by your actions? I include a fun mental exercise at the end of this post. This post will be hard for many people to understand.

Negative thoughts bring about some sort of negative consequence. Negative thoughts are those dealing with the fearsome foursome:

1. Fear  2. Anger  3. Depression  4. Guilt

It is said that all negative thoughts fall into one or more of these four categories. For example, worry is a kind of fear. Shame is a form of guilt. Sadness is a form of depression. Frustration and lack of forgiveness is anger.

These negative thoughts cause the body to make toxic chemicals flow into the bloodstream. They also tend to bring about more negative thoughts, more intense negative thoughts. If a person keeps thinking negative thoughts it almost always causes him to do negative things or say negative words that can cause serious problems. A business speaker said that negative thoughts can put enough toxins in the blood stream of a man or woman that if you drew a sample of blood and injected it into a rat, it would kill the rat.

If we sow positive thoughts we get stronger and more loveable. To think about things that we like, love or are attracted to is sowing positive thoughts. We are able to deal with pressure at work better, handle relationships better and just about every aspect of life. Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Love makes a person stronger and happier. This is true for every person and it is true all the time.

Isaac Newton said that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This is a law of nature that has been proven for hundreds of years in physics. But the amazing thing is that this is just another way of saying you reap what you sow. Some call it the Law of Attraction or Karma.

People who are successful in life (by just about any definition of success) are the ones who think positive thoughts and therefore use the power of love. Some achieve great success through hard work and talent, some have little talent but apply lots of hard work and the power of love.

An Olympic athlete competes because he loves the sport or he loves the idea of becoming a champion or he loves being in front of a crowd of people. He/she has to somehow be attracted to a sport. That person has to have faith, or you could call it confidence, that he can do well at the sport, otherwise he won’t be willing to do the work required to be successful.

If you want the life of your dreams, visualize it every day, love the idea and have faith. Be willing to love your work so that you work hard. The more you visualize it and love the idea, the stronger you will become. Think about things your like, food you like, places you like, things you like, TV shows, music, movies, sports, food that you like.

Many believe that everything that happens to you is a result of what you sowed, or planted in life with your thoughts, words or actions. Some don’t want to believe it because it puts too much pressure on them. Others want to believe it because it means that they can control everything that happens in their life. What do you think? Leave a reply and let us know.

Exercise:

Imagine for five minutes that you really can control everything that happens to you by reaping what you sow. What would you sow? How would you live your life? What would you do and think about? Many of the most respected life coaches say that you really do control your life. If you believe in God, and that he has the power to control everything and that he loves you, it becomes easy to believe that you reap what you sow, and reap only what you sow. Why did the Apostle Paul emphasize this point so much? Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”

    I’ve seen the power of love and positive thoughts. Truly. I told God or the Universe I now needed a handicap van for my husband’s power wheelchair. It took about a year of looking and listening. Then one night in a Burger King, I told Ken we needed to go to a certain dealership. I wanted to look at their vans. And no kidding, the salesman almost dropped his dentures when I told him what I wanted. He said, “I can’t believe this! We had an 85 year old gentleman bring in one this afternoon. His wife died and he didn’t need it any longer. He bought a new, smaller car.” The next day, we bought the van, which was in “like new” condition with more bells and whistles I could ever have imagined. I hope everyone heeds your message, Brad, because goodness begets goodness. Guaranteed.

    I sow in comments but I never seem to see them reap on your site. Either they are not getting there or are removed. Can you explain ?

    some people ask me about investing sometimes. I usually say make a plan and follow it. If you have a plan you are ahead of most of the world.

    what you reap you do sowe, especially through children, from very young, they listen, watch, and do whatever their parents do, in many situations, because that’s what they know, bring them up with good morals, and they will have good morals, good work ethics, they will have good work ethics, good religion, they will practice, teach, empathy, they will learn and do well, toward others, sympathy, they will give when needed.parents are the first teachers of their children
