Life is all about seasons. The first set of seasons that comes to mind are the weather related seasons that we experience same time every year.
There are celebratory seasons that we follow that are determined by culture, faith and beliefs. These include but not limited to holiday seasons, season for love, mating season and so on. Some people believe in seasons of life – also known as stages or chapters. Life seasons can be determined by age, level of succeess and much more.
I am writing this article for the millions that have a dream. Those who dream at succeeding in something that is personal to them – something that becomes life altering and the cycle repeats itself year after year, season after season.
SEASON ONE – (Winter Season)
The first season is the season of preparation. When dreams begin, they can become overwhelming, the mind begins to feel the sensation of huge drifts piling up.
First one idea, then another and slowly, methodically we start piecing together exactly what we want, and preparing exactly how we plan to get there.
A time to clean up social media to prepare the path for newer, more exciting people, places and ideas to put forth. Season one clears pathways in the mind making room for all the new that is about to spring forth.
SEASON TWO (Spring Season)
As season one begins to melt into season two, now is the time to begin planting the seeds of your dream. Spring, as we know it, brings new life into our worlds, sunshine and re-energizes everyone and everything.
Moving to Season Two allows the dream to begin to take shape, planting seeds, taking the first steps that represent moving forward towards your goals and dreams. For some, this changing of seasons happens very rapidly with a very small winter season, while for some the time between seasons takes much longer. The decision to move quickly or more carefully is determined by you – the one with the dream and how you accomplish moving forward.
SEASON THREE (Summer Season)
The most exciting of the seasons begins with summer. Your seeds are blooming, petals floating in gentle breezes and new seeds are planted. Every day you nurture your plants and frequently have the pleasure of picking a few to enjoy.
Summer marks a time for taking action, constantly moving forward, enjoying small successes, planting more seeds. Action taken day after day as the dream begins to unfold right before your eyes.
SEASON FOUR (Autumn Harvest)
Dreams are realized through every season. Sailing from summer to Autumn is to begin harvesting from prior seasons planting and nurturing.
Successes are seen everywhere around and now is the time to begin harvesting. The time to enjoy the beauty of all you have created is now and to begin sharing with those in your circle. Harvesting includes setting aside good seeds for the next planting and throwing out bad seeds that could damage your future crops / successes.
As your dream develops, you enter a ever-revolving cycle through the seasons to achieve your goal.
ONE – Plan, design, develop strategies and clear the mind to prepare
TWO – Plant good seeds daily that will blossom and grow
THREE – Time of action. Nurture, pluck, enjoy.
FOUR – Harvest the success and save the good seeds!
Knowing and understanding the four seasons to success will help you develop sound plans and goals to reach as you enter into each season. With every complete cycle, success increases, dreams are realized and new dreams begin to form.
