There’s a great story about a woman dreamed she found God standing behind a counter. God greeted her and told her she could have anything her heart desired. She just needed to wish for it. The woman didn’t hesitate in making her wish. She asked for “happiness, love and wisdom”. God looked at her and said, “I don’t think you understand. I can give you only seeds. Whether they become flowers is up to you.”

All of us have been blessed with seeds. What we do with them is up to us. But we can’t do anything with them if we don’t first acknowledge that we have them. We have to do our part.
