Planting Seeds for Success-Quotations

Planting Seeds for Success-Quotations
Currently I am reading The Kaizen Way: How One Small Step Can Change Your Life by Robert Maurer. The concept of doing a little bit consistently every day has a great appeal to me. To stay in the Kaizen frame of mind, I have been collecting quotes about “planting seeds,” consistency and patience. Here are just a few.

"Buddhist logic says that if you plant a lemon seed and pray for a mango fruit, logically it won’t work. But this is what we do: we wish for happiness without planting the seeds of happiness."― Khandro Rinpocheh, Tricycle.org

“Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” ― Robert Louis Stevenson, Goodreads.com


“Dedicate just 10 minutes to you goal today. Does the thought of an hour of exercise overwhelm you? Don't start with an hour. Start with 10 minutes. Take just 10 minutes to write, to go for a walk, to start writing that email you've been avoiding. START NOW.”― Mel Robbins, via Twitter"

“Little deeds are like little seeds, they grow to flowers or to weeds.”― Daniel D. Palmer, Brainyquote

"Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more." ― Louis L'Amour, Brainyquote

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”― Lao Tzu, Brainyquote

“Every morning has a unique story. There are always some seeds of possibilities waiting to sprout.” ― Amit Ray, Goodreads

“On the thirteenth day I wrote in my journal: ‘Disastrous day. I’ve lost all sense of being able to save this manuscript. It would be easier to start from scratch.’ The next entry was two days later: ‘I have started to play with the ms. I have abandoned the notion of long continuous chapters and let the small pieces exist as they are.’”― Patti Miller, The Memoir Book

“Sometimes it takes a little longer than we wish it did.”― HarlemsPosh, Twitter

“Spiritual learning is nothing other than the accumulation, over time, of such small, modest awakenings. Eventually this can lead to a fundamental shift of perspective.”― Lewis Richmond, Work as a Spiritual Practice

“My feeling was, you plant some seeds. If they grow, great; if they don't, you don't take it personally. Not my problem; I just kept planting. Just like a farmer.”― Hank Haney, .brainyquote

"Planting a whole garden can seem daunting...all you have to do is start by planting one seed. And keep adding another...Take care of those seeds, and before you know it, a little leafy green thing will greet you one day."― Brianne Burowes, Tinybuddha.com

“Keep moving forward. Do one thing every day. No matter how small to bring you closer to your Dreams.”― John McGrath, Twitter

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now."― Chinese Proverb
