Create an Environment for Success

My father had the biggest garden in our neighborhood.  He was known for growing the best squash, eggplant and tomatoes in our little section of the beautiful suburb of Windsor Ct.  This is because at the beginning of every season he went to the local farm and bought a truckload of cow manure. 

The neighbors would complain in the spring and praise him in the fall.  Really they should have praised me, because guess whose job it was to spread the crap?  (Anyway that’s a different story).  Every year the garden grew lush vegetables, because of the nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and sulfur found in the manure which created the perfect environment for the plants to grow to their best potential. 

I believe people are the same way. If we create the perfect environment to exist in we will perform at the highest level that we can and create our best fruit.  The overall environment we exist in is made up of three parts.  There is the outside physical environment, our physical body environment, and the spiritual environment.   

The first aspect to our environment is the physical environment that we live in.  In order for us to thrive, this environment must be one where we have love, happiness and peace.  We must get rid of negativity and negative people.  Surround yourself with people that believe in you and are willing to support you. 

The physical body environment is the condition of our physical body, ranging from our health to how good we feel when you look at our self in the mirror.  Your body should be beautiful to you and free of disease.  You must be fit enough to function day to day.  Stay in shape, do some kind of physical exercise daily. Your body was made to stay active.  Also, be mindful of the foods that you eat.  The foods that you eat can either make you healthy or make you sick.  Try to eat healthy foods that keep your body feeling good and looking good.

Our spiritual environment is important because, we are not physical beings having a spiritual experience.  Instead, we are spiritual beings having a physical experience.  We must have a relationship to a spiritual source and pray to that source in order to live a balanced life.  There are many different spiritual relationships that human beings have ranging from GOD, to Allah, to Buddha, and many, others.

In order to create an environment of success for yourself, pay attention to the three main parts of your life.  Just as I spread the cow crap every year to grow lush vegetables, you too must take the time to create the proper atmosphere to perform at your greatest potential and produce the best, biggest, most luscious fruit that you can.
