Last month I went on a field trip with Alex to a farm.
One of the farmers was teaching the children about the veggies that were grown there.
She took us into a cornfield and taught us all about corn.
Many, many years ago, before money was the medium of exchange for a product or service, farmers used to exchange corn for a pig, chickens, etc.
So it was important for the farmer to be able to grow corn.
I remember years ago, my mentor Karen Wilson used that expression with me. She told me that I knew how to grow corn. And that always stuck with me.
Meaning, I know how to plant a seed, tend to the newly growing plants, and nurture them until they produce the fruits of my labor to be able to exchange what I have grown for something else.
I think that’s one of the biggest things people have a hard time with, in attracting money. They don’t know how to grow their own corn.
In order to grow our corn, we need to know what our value is. Knowing our value and what we have to offer is important. When you know your value, you then have the confidence that what you are planting is good. That ensures that you nurture it and tend to it so you will see the fruits of your labor growing.
The good news is that we can learn this process of growing corn or, said in another way, we can learn how to create money.
