One of the simplest, yet most powerful plant-related approaches, is the Plant Interaction Program. This program embraces the familiar concept that big things can have small beginnings. Through this step-by-step program a lone plant can become a gateway to complete success. By focusing your attention on a plant, you can access the resources required to achieve your highest goals.
The effectiveness of this program seems to lie primarily in its capacity to generate a highly motivated state with strong expectations of success. Developed in the college setting for instructional enrichment, the program seems to actually shape the mind for success. It is applicable to a wide range of personal goals, from the simplest to the most complex, but for only one goal at a time. It can be practiced in almost any setting where a plant is available for viewing.Here's the program.
Step 1. Goal Statement
Step 2. Observation
Step 3. Plant Visualization
Step 4. Goal Visualization
Step 5. Plant-goal Connection
Step 6. Concluding Affirmation
For multiple goals, repeat the program for each goal. This program is especially effective when practiced in the early morning hours. It's a good way to start your day!
