One of the best things you can have on your desk at work or on your kitchen table is a pot plant. Not only does it look great but, believe it or not, it can also be a valuable tool for achieving success in every area of your life.
So how can a simple pot plant help you achieve success?
One of the fundamental laws of nature is this:
Anything that does not receive regular
attention will deteriorate over time.
If you think about this for a moment, you’ll see that this law holds true not only for a pot plant but also for every area of your life:
- If you do not pay regular attention to your health, it will deteriorate over time.
- If you do not pay regular attention to your relationships, they will deteriorate over time.
- If you do not pay regular attention to your finances, they will deteriorate over time
Having a pot plant on your desk is a great visual reminder of this fundamental law because if you don’t water it regularly it too will deteriorate.
As you water your plant every few days, use this action as a trigger to remind yourself to review your health, relationships and finances on a regular basis.
A good way to reinforce this idea is to place something like the following on the base of your pot.
Sometimes as you water your pot plant you might realise that you haven’t done any exercise for a few weeks.
At other times your may become aware that its been two months since you and your wife/husband have had some quiet time together.
Alternatively, your pot plant may also remind you that you need to review your finances.
As you can see, a simple pot plant sitting on your desk or kitchen table can be a great reminder to pay regular attention to the things that are most important to you.
Until next time,
Dare To Dream!
