I Am a Seed of Greatness!

Felicia Harlow with Students

A seed represents the beginning or starting point of all living things. Inside of the seed is all that is needed to grow into something magnificent. There is nothing to add, subtract or change within the seed to produce its harvest. And the most amazing part is that, given the proper conditions for growth, one tiny seed will produce so much more than itself.

To be great is to be massive, to be talented, and to be important. Each and every one of us is born from a seed that already contains greatness! Ask yourself, “Do I feel important? Do I believe I can truly make a difference in my life, my family, my community, my campus or my world?” Even in the midst of upsets with your parents, roommate, significant other or even yourself, you are still a seed of greatness. You are great just because you are you!

“I Am A Seed of Greatness” is a powerful statement that helps you live a Growth in Motion™ lifestyle which helps you believe and know beyond a shadow of a doubt you are talented and important. Have trust and faith in who you are, simply because you’re you! Tell yourself the truth and know that you are appreciated by so many people.

Growth in Motion!! = Self Care + Self Empowerment + Self Knowledge + Self Direction

2 Ways to Practice and live “GREATNESS”

  1. Listen to your own guidance – we are born with an “internal guidance system” (IGS) that directs us each step of the way. Many of us learn to ignore our natural “internal voice” while making plenty of room in our lives for validating what others say about us and what they think about what we should or should not be doing. When we learn how to give our “internal guidance system” the priority that it deserves in our lives, we feel empowered and true to ourselves.
  2. Schedule time to relax – you might be saying, “Yeah, right! Relaxing is something I just can’t do. I have too much homework, papers to write and tests to worry about!” The problem with this is that our bodies are naturally designed for periods of activity and non-activity. When you don’t allow for “non-activity” in your life, you become out of balance and your “natural rhythm” gets thrown off. When your natural rhythm gets thrown off, you spend most of your time “in your head or thinking” while forgetting about the rest of yourself – your body, emotions and spirit. And when you don’t pay attention to all aspects of who you are, some parts of you will become stiff, inflexible, irritable, resentful or fearful. Spending time in relaxation helps you to begin giving your “constant thinking” some much needed breaks.

Remember, today is a new day! Every day, affirm “I Am A Seed of Greatness!” Take care of yourself in a way that brings out your greatness. Write down what happens and share your discoveries with me here at CampusTalkBlog. Your life will change for the better right before your eyes!

    i believe that there is seed of greatness in us, and that seed is what make us unique in nature

  2. I have believed for some time that all of us have the ability to be the best in the world at something. Whether that be sports, cooking, knitting, or whatever, there is some “seed”, as you put it so eloquently, that exists that once we tap into it can take us to new levels of excitement, achievement, and happiness. I have found a few of those seeds within me and enjoy it when I find them and go off on new adventures. I don’t always hit the right path right away, but the internal GPS does seem to get me where I need to go! Good article, Felicia!
