I’m serious! This year I’d like to see more people embrace this concept of sowing and reaping. It’s the best way to ensure we have our best year ever! Intensify your effort when it comes to planting seeds. Do more than you did last year and you’ll have more than you had last year.
What this video and you’ll see what I mean. Let’s not complicate this. Let’s not over analyze or dismiss it. Keep it simple. Put it into application. It works… For me and countless others.

I’m not talking anything complicated here. Very basic. Very simple. Here are a few mind jugglers for you about planting more seeds:
- Make more calls.
- Attend more networking events.
- Send out more letters to clients.
- Read more books.
- Write down more goals.
- Work more hours.
- Take more trainings.
- Take more risks. (That’s a big one.)
- Let more people know what you and how they can help you.
- Pray more often.
- Give more compliments.
- Create more products.
- Write more.
Now, you have to practice what I call smart planting or productive planting. Don’t go out there and do a bunch of things without some kind of planning. Make sure you plant the right kinds of seeds. I remember when my grandfather was getting ready to plant his seeds in the village in Haiti. He had many rituals.
He knew if he were going to have a big harvest he had to plant lots of seeds. He’d thoroughly plan for it. He would spend days plowing and preparing the ground for seeding. He would uproot all the weeds. He would pay close attention to the moon. He would separate the weak seeds from the strong ones. He left nothing to chance.
When it comes to sowing and reaping and preparing the ground for your success, you should plan and execute well. But don’t spend eternity planning either. The formula is: Ready, set, go, go, go, go, and go. Yes, no time to lick the wounds; no time to cry about miss opportunities. No to time to complain about how bad things were last year. Just keep planting. When times are tough, plant more seeds!
Again a simple but powerful message from you Rene ! Thanks a lot, I will try to plant more seeds in every possible situation.
This is Tanya, I hope you remember me. I was doing so much through your advice and I wrote a book called “Found in a Garbage Can” Generation X to Generation Next: The End of the Godless Age? I will admit for my first book, the title was the best part. In hine-site, I know I could have done better. The thing of it is I couldn’t have done better until now. God didn’t plan for me to become a book writer, at least He hasn’t been showing me that. Never the less, I have written another book, Fighting for the right to be ‘Good’. I wrote it within 30 days after I published the first one. I haven’t published it yet because the Lord has been taking me toward the way to his plan for my life.
I am now Pastor Tanya E. Partin Lawton. I was ordained on June 7th of this year. I am the Pastor of the Single Mothers Ministry at the Fall River Church of Christ. I have attended services since 2010. My website, Women of Faith/A Spiritual Website (http://womensteeringwome.com), has transformed tremendously into a vehicle for the glory of God. I have developed a Single Mothers Leadership Ministry Manuel for all Single Mothers everywhere. I live in the Pleasant View Housing Projects, my mission field, and have been elected the President of the Tenants Association (Tell me this isn’t God!). The entire projects are filled with Single Mothers and I live here too.
Just last night I created the ultimate in 1 Pagers and all I could think of was showing you! You have been my inspiration for all of my administrative work that is advancing the kingdom and I just want to lift you up before God as my brother in Christ because of your heart to share your life with others, especially me. The Lord put you in my life for a reason more than a year ago and now I see how the Lord does his planning, and I still don’t get all of it.
I am going to let you go here and just say thank you. If you would like to see the 1 Pager that I created, please send me an email and I will resend it that way.
I have been privileged to have know you and maybe, through our circles we may be able to meet as brother and sister in the Lord. People do have a reason for living don’t they? It is all God. Amen!
PS Thank you and may God keep blessing the work of your hands.
