Seeds must be planted

Glen McQuirk

Seed is given in abundance to the diligent sower. Be a sower of seed.

You might believe that a seed is simply a potential plant, and you would be right. A closer look might reveal that a seed is a potential harvest. The truth is more far reaching. One seed has the potential to vegetate the entire planet. That is mind blowing. To appreciate this fully, you need to think generationally. Sadly the majority of people are only interested in the here and now. They are unable to see the true value of the seed they possess. They choose instead to plant those that pop up quickly, like weeds, the get rich quick ideas, the ones with the least obstacles. The ones where God is nor needed. The most valuable seeds you can plant are those that produce their best harvest after you are gone. These are seeds with life, these are seeds of purpose. The most natural thing to do with seed is sow it. Sow yours.

What seed are you sowing?

Seeds can be kept

Glen McQuirk

Seeds survive well in dark dry barren environments.

Recently I purchased some seed for my farming experiment. I brought many different types of seed. What I noticed was that each of the types came tightly sealed in their own packet made of foil. The purpose of the packet was to keep moisture and sunlight from the seed. Two of the four essential ingredients for its germination and growth. There is a strong parallel between these packets or containers and the vessel for dream seed. The vessels that carry seed are designed to be dark and void of all life, and anyone who has not planted their dream seed presents similiar characteristics. When you look into their eyes, the windows to their soul, it appears no one is home. They are dead on the inside just waiting for the outside to catch up. The great news is that the packet can be ripped open at any time. Expose your dream seed.

Open your packet and share a dream…

Select the best seed

Glen McQuirk

Choose the seed that will produce your chosen harvest.

Every farmer knows and understands this principle. A seed produces after its own kind. Plant apple seed and you will grow apple seeds. A child can tell you this. So the farmer first determines what crop he wishes to harvest and then sets out to find the seed that will produce that harvest. This is a principle. Every thing created has within it the seed to replicate itself. This physical principle is also present and evident as a spiritual law. Since dreams are spiritual in nature, this principle applies. To select the best seed for planting from that which you have conceived, you need to know what harvest you aim to reap. The choice is entirely yours, but fulfillment only comes when you choose the ones which resonate with your gifts, talents and passion and which meet a need in society. Every seed produces a harvest. Choose wisely.

What seed should you be planting daily to produce your chosen harvest?

Significant dream seed

Glen McQuirk

Selfish seed feeds you. Successful seed feeds you and your family.Significant seed feeds the world.

Most people seem to sow seed for selfish reasons. The seed they sow produces a harvest for survival, stability, and success. These harvests are minuscle when compared to those produced by seeds of significance. They are never given time to reproduce. Their fruit is eaten by the sower before it can produce more seed. They are quick growing, plentiful and meet immediate and basic needs. Seeds of significance, on the other hand, require that the sower become others focused. These seeds take longer to produce their fruit, but when they do, the food is so plentiful that it not only feeds the sower and his family, but feeds many others. In fact there is so much fruit that much of it has opportunity to become seed and replicate after itself sustaining the sower for life and continuing to sustain others beyond his life.

Which seeds are you sowing for success and which for significance?

Dream paths are unknown

Glen McQuirk

The dream is more easily and precisely defined than the path to its fulfilment.

You and I can only define the path we took to get to our dream. There are too many unknowns about the future to be able to define exactly what will happen on route to our chosen destiny. Yet amazingly everyone wants to answer the HOW before they begin. The HOW can easily be answered after the dream has been achieved, not before. What you need to know before is the WHY. The WHY will empower you to endure any HOW. It will also enable you to find the resources you need to fulfill the HOW. When you catch a glimpse of a dream, it will always seem impossible to you, and it should, because no one person can possess sufficient skill and knowledge for every aspect of a dream. It requires others to be involved along the way. Doing what you can with what you have will enable you to get what you do not yet have.

What do you have that you can immediately put to use?

Focus your dream

Glen McQuirk

F.O.C.U.S. = Follow One Course Until Success

Revealed to me by Romeo Chouake of Cameroon

Focus is powerful. Focus enables the lenses of my spectacles to clarify my vision and at the same time magnify the suns energy sufficiently to start a fire. Focus brings any subject matter into clear view. Many people use focus negatively. They think about what can go wrong and consequently deny their dream life. Instead, they could focus on what can go right and ignite a fire of passion within their dream that cannot be extinguished. Zig Ziglar says that to have the best that life has to offer we need to learn to say NO to a lot of good ideas. The biggest distractions in life are often these good ideas. They are the enemy of the great. The enemy of best is the rest. “Focus on a pinhead” was Raymond Ackerman’s advice to me. Too often we are focused on a pin cushion. Life is too short not to focus on the best it has to offer.

What do you tend to focus on and why?

Dream job

Glen McQuirk

A job should not be a means to an end, but a means to a beginning.

We should work to learn not work to learn. We should seek to follow a career that is our dream or has the potential to contribute significant knowledge and skill for the effective implementation and fulfillment of our dream. If we choose to start a business, it should be our dream, not a means to a end. When we do things as a means to an end, we are often disappointed; they do come to an end, usually not a pleasant one. If our approach to work or business is contrary to the way the majority approach it, we will be energized, enthusiastic, great to be around and easily promoted. We will be an asset to any organization, group or team we are part of. When we begin to say yes to things in line with our dream, we will be more devoted and committed to what we do. A great dream has an end that is beyond your end.

What have you learnt in your career recently that can benefit your dream?

Dream food

Glen McQuirk

Thinking is spiritual food that converts thought into something physical.

You are what you think about. I am sure you have heard this being said before. The question is do you believe it. I mean, after all, how on earth can you really become what you think about? I have had many thoughts and by far the majority have never seen the light of day. Well, it’s not those fleeting thoughts that seem to pop in and out of the mind, it’s the ones we habitually think about and mediate on. It’s the ones that consume our mind day and night. If what we think about is who we are becoming, it would be worth stopping from time to time and consider what is dominating our thought life. If our thoughts are in line with our purpose and vision, then we should continue cultivating those thoughts; if not, we must replace them with thoughts that represent our chosen destiny. Everything begins with a thought.

What dominates your thought life?

Dreams red herrings

Glen McQuirk

Doubt exposed is doubt deposed.

Often we think we doubt our dream but actually doubt ourselves. When someone else doubts whether our dream will work, they make comments based on their own limited experience and perception of our ability. Since personal ability is not a prerequisite for the achievement of a dream, our doubts are often red herrings. Belief in our doubts and doubt of our beliefs is dream poisen. To avoid falling into this trap, we need to share our dreams and insecurities with experienced dream chasers. These people have a better knowledge of the ingredients for dream accomplishment. Sharing your doubts with them will result in your doubts being deposed and their stronghold over you broken. Dream chasers learn to turn their doubts into determination fuel, an encouragement instead of a discouragement. Be a dream chaser.

What characteristics are possessed by dream chasers?

Tattoo your dream

Glen McQuirk

Your dream becomes a permanent image in your mind which reveals something about your past, present or future.

MIAMI INK and LA INK are programs about tattoo specialists. The people featured in these programs are specialists at transferring images to the skin in an almost permanent way. I say almost permanent because certain laser treatments can dissolve the ink and remove the tattoo over time. There is a permanent tattoo you can give yourself though. It is given by TH INK. Everything that enters your mind, whether it is something you see, hear or THINK about, is permanently tattooed in your brain; there until the day you die. So what tattoos have you employed TH INK to imprint on your mind? Just as the tattoos appearing on peoples skin tell you something about the person wearing them, so too do the unseen tattoos of the mind reveal the person carrying them, because they become the tattoo.

What is the dominant image that is being tattooed on your mind by TH INK?
