What does it mean to plant seeds?

Planting seeds can look like many things, Pouncil explains. “Sometimes you’re saying no to the other person, but saying yes to yourself. Sometimes you’re saying something they aren’t ready to hear, they respond negatively, and they take it personally. I’m just planting the seed…in them and in me. If I plant the seed, my job is done. The best way to plant the seed is to plant it in myself so that my behavior can be the seed.” A great example can simply be responding in kind to someone who is being nasty. Right now, they may not learn or change, but you behave in the way that’s important to you. You planted the seed of kindness in the other person. It may grow or it may not – it depends on how they water it. But you did your job.
