Bloom to Your Fullest (1)
Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown – Matthew 13:8
After a long, lifeless winter, spring arrives once again with its unique and elegant charm. I can see it in my backyard with the greenish grass, hear it in the songs of birds singing in the air, smell it in the fragrant air, and touch it with the blooming flowers. Spring is so real, and it is everywhere around me.
Similarly, you may have gone through a season of challenges, both internal and external, and prevailed over all of your adversaries, although you may have taken some detours and experienced some delays. Now, you are blooming. But is this the end of your growth? Have you reached your fullest potential in life and are now ready to fall like the flowers?
No. You are on the journey to Grow to Your Fullest. We have already discussed the first three steps: Finding Your Signature Vision, Conquering Internal Barriers, Breaking through External Obstacles. Now let’s move on to the last step (step 4), a series of Bloom to Your Fullest. (Fig 1: 4 Steps to Grow to Your Fullest)
When I observe flowering trees, I notice there are two types: one only bears blossoms, while the other type bears fruit after blooming. Similarly, there are two types of success in life. One only focuses on personal success, while the other multiplies that success by bearing fruit and extending it to others and the world. The later goes beyond personal success.
So, what type of success do you want to achieve in life? Do you want to focus only on your own success then fall and disappear, or do you want to multiply your success and leave a legacy?
I assume you don't want to stop at full bloom but continue to grow until you reap a full harvest – bearing thousands of fruits and ensuring your success lasts for generations to come. It has no ending points.
You are not satisfied with the praise for your charming blossom, but you are more excited to bear more glorious and sweet fruits. You don't want to stop where you are. Instead, you desire to go the extra mile, to exceed your personal capacity and guide others to reach their best. Be a leader and share your wisdom by passing it on to others. You are like a seed planted in good soil, multiplying a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown (Matthew 13:8).
Like a tree, you are in full bloom, but to bear fruit, flowers must fall. So, you must step down to help others succeed and start a new journey by planting the seeds of success in others. You lift your vision to reach new heights by motivating and inspiring others to bloom and succeed in their own lives.
Now, let's embark on a new journey to a new horizon – Step 4, bloom to your fullest and bear fruit. In the next post, I will share how you can bear fruit and bloom to your fullest potential, multiplying your success.
May you grow to your fullest!
