What are you sowing?

We’ve all heard the saying, “You reap what you sow.” A farmer sows seed to ensure a good harvest. But you can’t harvest what you haven’t planted.

Sowing is the hard part. It’s about work, trust, giving away… without that we can’t reap the rewards we desire.

Some leaders find it hard to invest themselves because they either don’t see what the results do for others or they think the results will happen on their own.

On the other hand, good leaders view resources like their time, their finances, and their gifts as seed to be sown. They know that in time the harvest will come, and their efforts will be multiplied.

Like just about everything we set out to accomplish, it starts out with our mindset. Are you approaching the work to be done with a mindset of scarcity or a mindset of plenty?



  • On defense and self-regarded
  • On offense and altruistic
  • Maintain for self-security
  • Create opportunities for others
  • Protect from loss
  • Seize a vision
  • Hold your gifts
  • Release your gifts
  • Guard and protect
  • Risk and seize
  • Stagnation
  • Multiplication
  • Hold on
  • Let go!
  • Close-minded
  • Open-minded
  • Thinks win-lose
  • Thinks win-win
  • More for me
  • Less for you
  • “I” and “me” focus
  • “Us” and “we” focus

How’s your mindset? How are you making decisions? Do you see and act with a plentiful mindset, or do you let your fear of loss paralyze your generous thinking?

For my faith-based friends: Remember God is more than abundant, but we must trust, have faith, and seek His plan. Satan, on the other hand, loves a scarcity mindset. He uses fear and doubt to prevent us from having the courage to accomplish all we’re meant to do.
