Take a look at an apple tree. There might be five hundred apples on the Tree, each with ten seeds. That’s a lot of seeds!
We might ask, “Why would you need so many seeds to grow just a few more Trees?”
Nature has something to teach us here. It’s telling us: “Most seeds never Grow. So if you really want to make something happen, you better try More than once.”
This might mean:
You’ll attend twenty interviews to get one job.
You’ll interview forty people to find one good employee.
You’ll talk to fifty people to sell one house, car, vacuum Cleaner, insurance policy, idea…
And you might meet a hundred acquaintances to find one special friend.
When we understand the “Law of the Seed”, we don’t get so disappointed.
We stop feeling like victims. Laws of nature are not things to take personally.
We just need to understand them – and work with them.
To the world you might be just any person, but
to one person you might just be the whole world.
Being is not the breaths you take, but
it is the freshness you put in the breath of others.
Growing older has no choice, but
growing up has choice.
Being born has no choice but
Living life has choice
Falling sick has no choice, but
Keeping healthy has choice
Getting caught through storm has no choice, but
Efforts for safe landing has choice
