Protect Your Crop

Protect Your Crop


Big respect for you if you’re all in and going after life. Hang tough and find some gems in today’s RISE UP With Dragon. To all those not going after life today? Wake the heck up!

Look in your mailbox.

You were invited to the party.

“The only way life gets better for you is when you get better for life.”


Think for a second about all that goes into harvesting a crop.

It’s not something we just wake up to whenever we feel like it. Not something that greets us the morning after we say a prayer or ask for it. It’s not something that comes just because you want or need it and believe you can have it.

It starts with a decision and that decision is to engage in a process that will take lots of hard work, lots of time and patience, discipline, responsibility and consistency, but most of all a large risk that it could all be for nothing.

Good news, those chances of it failing are dramatically decreased if you practice all the purposeful action step and qualities with urgency and pride in an almost obsessive life dependent fashion. That’s right farmer of dreams. You must PROTECT YOUR CROP as if your life depends on it.

Because it does and this isn’t just about you. This crop feeds as well as provides livelihood and income for others too.

So, for their sake I ask that you PROTECT YOUR CROP!!!!!

“Don’t spend major time on minor things.”

You don’t have time and your crop needs your full attention outside the things that matter most. Therefore, keep the Main thing the Main thing.

Your Life and business are like the changing seasons. You can’t change the seasons but you can change yourself. Consider not only PROTECTING YOUR CROP but always look how you can improve your farming skills for better results.

Some call this “Personal Growth” ;)

Please farmer. Be aware and learn how to handle the winters. They come right after Fall every year so be prepared. Learn to handle the nights as these always come after the days. These nights always come so we must not learn to avoid them, but instead embrace them. We must learn to handle them with perfection. (Some great words I heard from Jim Rohn)

Protect your Crop. Once you start something you must protect it. It is like a garden - it can grow into what it is intended to grow into. Your harvest is the result of all the time and work you put into protecting your crop. The harvest is what the work is intended for yet only represents 10% of the process. So…… it’s all about the work and the 90% of time you protect the crop.

Take full responsibility for what happens to you and your crop along the way. Accept the outcome and accept your role in it with no regrets or apologies.

It’s not what happens that determines the quality of your life. The same things happens to us all. It’s what you do that changes everything. What happens to all folks is the SAME. It’s how we react and what we do that makes us DIFFERENT. I know life has happened to me many, many times. Some of us have even experienced losing it all. 

“Remember that disappointments are not things reserved for the poor.” Jim Rohn

Starting today. What are you going to do that will make a difference in your life? What I always loved about life is knowing that every single day I have the potential to change everything by simply doing life differently. If you don’t like the way things are in your life? Then change it.

Are you ready to do the work and commit to all involved in planting and nurturing and protecting your crop with a quality decision and full understanding of everything entailed?

Well then welcome to the party, Farmer. You have earned my respect and I only ask that you send me an ear of your delicious corn on the other side so I may enjoy the fruits of your labor with the taste reflecting all the efforts you placed into the protection of your crop.
