Nourishing the seeds of sucess

Four laws of Planting Seeds (Enlightened Business Institute)
Positive seeds cause pleasure; Negative seeds cause pain
Seeds expand and grow EXPOTENTIALLY
Seeds not planted cannot bring a result
Seeds planted must bring a result
Nurturing the seeds of success
The key ingredient to nuturing the seeds of prosperity is paying attention to the environment in which you conduct your business, the people you associate with, and your conduct, both in your business and personal life
The law of Karma will always bring it back to you in a worse manner.
In some lines of Buddhism it is believed that every time you lie many of your brain cells die, as they are made to think and believe something that’s is not true. In turn when the brain thinks in reverse there could be a negative effect on the brain. We have not yet found any scientific research on this, but it is worth pointing out as a point of reference.
“Never Lie. Never tell one lie. If you tell one lie, you will have to eventually tell fifteen more to cover up the first lie”; ….According to Jon Barry, a successful real estate management firm and a man of great integrity….one requires a cover of 15 more. In turn, each of these 15 requires 15 more, or 225 lies. Furthermore, each of the 225 lies next requires fifteen more. Now we are at 225 times 15, or 3.375 lies. Again 3,375 lie times 15 equals 50,625. And so on. It is a much more productive use of one’s time, energy, and intelligence to always tell the truth, to e honest with all people” (Thomas J. Stanley, PhD, ‘The Millionaire mind’ Bantam Books London, 2001, pg. 67)
Integrity begins at home: “You cannot expect your spouse to be supportive if you lie and cheat. What you do in your personal life will eventually have ramifications in your personal and vice versa. Your spouse and your children have many, many opportunities to observe your behavior. It’s not enough to say that you are honest or merely attend religious services each week. You have to be a role model for your spouse your children and all others. If you are, your spouse will probably support you through good times and bad, during thin years and plump years. (Thomas J. Stanley, PhD, ‘The Millionaire mind’ Bantam Books London, 2001, pg. 70-71)
Never talk badly about anybody, even less when they are not present.
Consider carefully where you plant your seeds. Avoid environments where the people are not passionate about the work that they are doing. Try to find environments that are respectful and supportive. If you are seeking work in an office environment, look at the cubicle decorations. Sparse cubicle decorations often indicate that people are not intending to stay long. Colorful and homey cubicles with plants often indicate more supportive work environments. Become intuitive. Be open to but also discerning of possible new clients and customers.
Learn to listen to the currents of prosperity. Know when it is time to follow the current and when to change your direction or to take some time off. .The road to prosperity is not a straight path, but a meandering one with many side paths and detours.
