"Don't judge each day
by the harvest you reap,
but by the seeds
that you plant."
-- Robert Louis Stevenson
OK. It's January 17th already. How's that weight loss thing going? Been on the scale each day checking out the current reality? Your current harvest? Here's a better idea: Stay off the scale entirely. Pay no attention to it at all. Instead, pay attention to how you will feel when you get where you want to be. You will know when you get there, so there really isn't any need to remind yourself that you're not yet there, or that you forgot to leave the station.
I love this quote by Steve Maraboli so much that I have it taped to my wall. He says, "The scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That's it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don't give the scale more power than it has earned." I just love how he states this what should be obvious fact. Yet, we often read so much into the numerical relationship with gravity and then give the scale a lot of power.
Of course, the same holds true with our job, business, school, family, government, and more. Whatever it is that is demonstrating some harvest, or manifestation, concentrate instead on the seeds that you plant, or better said, the thoughts that you choose to think on. Don't give so-called reality more power than it has earned. Those new seeds will make the changes visible in time.
What? Me Worry? Nah! I'm Good.
