YOUR LIFE A-Z: ZYGOTE
Everything Starts from a Spark
Researchers estimate that 60% of all naturally occurring conceptions
fail because the ZYGOTE never becomes properly implanted in the uterus. Kendra Cherry references in, About Psychology, a ZYGOTE is
a one- celled organism created after the egg has been fertilized. What does a ZYGOTE have to do with your
dreams and goals? In order for a ZYGOTE
to make it to the uterus, it must rapidly divide into many cells. In order for your dream or goal to be birthed,
it must be properly planted in your heart (uterus). When you plant your dream
or desire in your heart you have to provide for the ZYGOTE a nutrient enriched
environment for it to be able to multiply and divide rapidly. If 60% of those dreams and desires are going
to fail then you have to keep replanting and focus on the 40% that are going to
grow and flourish. Think of your
personal goals as ZYGOTE ideas. An idea
is just an idea. You can have a hundred
different ideas a day. Forty percent of
those ideas can develop into dreams and goals if you provide the ZYGOTE idea
with the necessary steps to become a reality.
Nothing just happens. All things
come to life with proper attention to detail, planning, and “tweaking” what
doesn’t work until the ZYGOTE grows hands, feet, heart, lungs, and brain to become
a mobile and viable life force to reward you with the joy of staying with the
process until the hard work pays off.
Don’t be discouraged by the 60%, focus on the 40% that survive.
