If you love that wonderful bush to grow, you give it plenty of everything it needs and wants to grow up big and beautiful. But in spring you brought it home but hid it in the garage. Even with lights it will not thrive. Stop hiding love. If you love something, give it the right attention and energy so that it can demonstrate its best. Too often, the fear of not wanting to display your latest and greatest desire, one hides it from the world. Yes, dream stealers are some of the nastiest things on the planet. But if you love something, give yourself the chance to help it grow with all the love you can muster.
Give Happiness Some Love
Your wonderful new idea must be given the happiness it can in turn give you. Give happiness some love. The habit of not allowing a great idea to see light of day as it develops will ensure it will always remain hidden and remain anaemic and weak. Your thinking is for it to remain hidden until it grows. Hence the paradox as you hide it from the world, it remains small and powerless. Therefore it never becomes strong enough in your will to let it display its full potential.
Watch your children play in the sunny playground. That’s happiness that you had offered your love to. Why you brought them to that playground was because of love of happiness. Of course you’ll want to nurture all that joy radiating from those little ones. It’s the same with a business or a new project you think should be kept secret. Working with it in closed in fear simply means you will instantly forgo any idea or potentially powerful knowledge that you can harness for your new baby.
If You Love It Let It Grow
Remember the wisdom of letting love grow? I’m sure you’ve already heard of an elder telling you to let your children go so that they can grow if you truly love them? So it is the same here. Your desire for anything of your desires cannot and must never be held back in any way.
Just like a hidden plant in your garage, its lack of the critical growth potential simply means all that water, heat and fertiliser never gets to be used because your little plant does not have the ability to show its full potential to grow. Without growth, it can’t use all the available resources thrown at it.
Stop Hiding Love
I have been helping some people with their projects with such joy lately. But I came to realise the majority of them appear to be somewhat sad about their progress. And it was then that I found out they had been hiding their project the moment they leave the workshop. They are all full of enthusiasm in class but totally lackadaisical elsewhere.
This thing I was so sure they loved was always kept hidden outside. They fear even talking about it. What this means is that they are not making full use of their focus. Their so called main focus only received 1% of their entire available time. It’s no wonder things did not appear to go well for them. It’s no wonder that there was so much wanting or lacking in their endeavour.
Making Love Grow
But in contrast there were just 2 projects which were run all the time and within ten days, they had secured more than 90% of their requirements. In fact, their story is about not caring what anyone else was telling them about the failure of such ideas. They were simply tired of being fearful of their families, their friends and even some colleagues who kept putting them down.
So, in fact, they couldn’t stop thinking or working on their project at all it seems. They admit that they have been at it 99% of the time. It could be a research they were doing. They talked to business people and asked advice. They drew or doodled about their project or very simply thought about them.
