“You Can’t Always Be In The Reading Stage Or The Harvest Stage Of Life. Life Has Seasons.” -Emma Watson

By Laura St. Louis, DTM

While we would all undoubtedly prefer to experience perpetual success and abundance, that’s simply unrealistic, as actress Emma Watson points out here. It’s important to remember that to reach the bountiful times, we must first put in the work — without sowing, there can be no reaping or harvesting.

Much like nature, life is cyclical, and whether it’s a matter of making difficult choices, delaying instant gratification for better outcomes in the future, or weathering the unpredictable storms that come our way, we must shoulder our way through the harder seasons to enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Maintaining a balanced perspective and embracing both the easy and the arduous moments can improve our resilience and help us appreciate those sweet moments of success all the more when they do come.

As Toastmasters you know that to develop your communication and leadership skills you need to put in the work to make that happen. Think about how much you have grown since joining this program. Have you been given promotions at work? Have you developed the self confidence to peel yourself away from the wall and talk to people? Are co-workers, friends, and family noticing that you have changed for the better? It has happened through the work you have put into your development. 

This coming year, I encourage you to share your story with others and invite them to a meeting. Let them know that they too can grow in their skills and confidence by fully participating in the Toastmasters program. I am certain they won’t regret it.
