Law of Sowing and Reaping
Plant seeds of doubt and you'll reap a harvest of uncertainty. Plant seeds of fear and you'll pick the fruit of scarcity and lack. Conversely, plant seeds of abundance, certainty and trust and you'll yield a crop of hope and healing. Plant love and your harvest will be bumper crop of still more love.
In other words, what goes around, comes around.
If you plant seeds of control and management in the soil of your patient relationships, expect a harvest of high maintenance patients who require emotionally draining supervision and who set you up for disappointment. And if you plant seeds of trust and personal responsibility, you will just as certainly manifest patients with high self-esteem who value accountability and wellness care.
The seeds you plant are up to you. It's your garden. Naturally, if you're unhappy with your harvest, plant different seeds!
