Bloom Where You’re Planted

Wise choices create the outcomes we desire.

Have you ever felt stuck? Did you complain or become negative about the situation? Did that work?

Many people get upset and complain about situations where they have little to no control. Yet, what does that get them? More upset! That’s all.

Complaining does not make it better. In fact, it generally makes things much worse.

After all, complaining either drives other people away or it brings on more negativity. All that negativity breeds more negativity, which then feeds on your body and spirit.

Instead, try blooming where you’re planted.

If the situation cannot be changed, then the attitude must be changed. Accept the challenge with a positive attitude and yourself to bloom where you’re planted. Then, watch the changes miraculously unfold.

A friend of mine worked for a good company, but she felt she was stagnating. She wanted to do more, but did not see a path for promotion in her company, so she began to look  at other companies. Other companies, however, offered salaries with less pay, which would have been detrimental to her family. Therefore, she reluctantly decided to stay where she was, but she decided she would just make the best of that job and create her own fun challenges by blooming where she was planted.

Fast forward two months. She was enjoying her job again when a colleague suddenly decided to leave another position. My friend applied for the new position and immediately given the position.

Although the new position was a lateral move with no increase in pay, it meant new challenges, more freedom, and less stress. Again, she bloomed where she was planted. Six months later, she was promoted to a position equal to what she originally wanted.

When you decide to stop complaining and bloom where you’re planted, it’s amazing how soon what you wanted actually appears.

Yet, still, so many people haven’t discovered the power of positivity, the joy it brings, and the rewards it brings from the universe.

Don’t believe me? Try it. I challenge you to focus on the positive for 30 days and just watch what happens.

  1. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results…there’s a cliche for that. However, making something different happen, well, that’s the difference between being a doer or a thinker. :) Great thoughts!

    Great article, though it can sometimes be difficult to try and follow the advice of making the best of what you have – especially in this material society. I think it takes a certain portion of maturity and realizing that hey, things could be worse!

    All the best,

    Thanks for the comments, Carrie Ann and Rose. Definitely, being positive all the time can be difficult, but being negative all the time creates more difficulties. Every time we catch ourselves and stop ourselves from being negative is a win and those wins build upon one another for more and more positivity.
