oh my, worries of this life is choking the word for me to digest.... thanks in advance for your prayers for me brothers and sisters in Christ that i may be fruitful...

well, personal assessment is that i think at not at least in no. 1 or 2:

1. snatches away what was sown in their heart... am not sure, may be those who trust on their understanding, ie: man's wisdom

2. rocky ground, no roots...am not sure but i got also in a bit of persecution but not that much... although ive been to rationalist forums before, and did shaked my faith a bit, and thanks God am over that...ie: my faith has roots : )
thus, i think am on no .3

3. fell among thorns..

4. fell on good soil

Matthew 13:1-9 New International Version (NIV)The Parable of the Sower
13 That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.”

Matthew 13:18-23 New International Version (NIV)
18 “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. 20 The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 22 The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. 23 But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”

Ok looks like you need to do some weeding.
Another thing you could do if the weeds are too much is transplanting, but I would advise weed first before you do that because transplanting can be a shock to the system. Most of the time we are to grow where we are planted, but that doesnt stop God from moving us to somewhere better where we can thrive if thats His will.
