During the 1920's, one of the wealthiest people in America was a man named Andrew Carnegie. What was even more amazing was, not only was Mr. Carnegie wealthy, but at one time, Mr. Carnegie had several millionaires working for him.
One day he was asked why these people were so valuable to him that he paid them a million dollars to work for him. He said, "When these men came to work for me, they didn't start off worth a million dollars. I built them up to that point."
WHAT’S GROWING IN YOUR GARDEN?
Posted: April 17, 2017
Let’s pretend you are going to grow a garden. If you want an apple tree, what kind of seeds do you need to plant? How about a peach tree? What if you want a tomato plant, what kind of seeds do you need to plant? What if you plant nightshade, want kind of plant will you get?
Your mind is like a garden. If you put in the positive, you grow into a positive person. If you put in the negative, you grow into a negative person. You can’t put negative in and expect to get positive out. Impossible!
Because our minds work like a garden, we have to be careful about what we allow into our minds. If you are unfamiliar with the plant nightshade-both the foliage and the berries of this plant are extremely toxic! We don’t want that in our garden and we certainly don’t want any toxic thoughts taking root in our minds. Be careful to guard yourself against allowing negativity from the outside influences to find a place to call home in your mind. What you allow into your mind ultimately determines what you will become.
