I don’t know what the odds are of a tree or shrub flourishing from a single seed in its natural habitat.

100/1

1,000/1

I guess the odds are better in the perfect conditions that a garden can provide, although with my gardening skills, that’s questionable.

When you put a seed in the ground, not matter how well you water it and care for it, there are no guarantees.

It could thrive, or it could shrivel and die.

It may flower beautifully, or it could be a massive disappointment.

But this I do know.  If you never plant it, it will never, ever grow.

Your dreams and aspirations are like seeds.

You can try to create the perfect conditions for them to flourish in.

You can do everything in your power to increase the odds.

But there are no guarantees that they will come to fruition.

However, if you never try to do anything with your dreams, I can guarantee that they will never happen.

So, go on.

Take the risk.

Plant the seed.

Change the world.
