it's a fact..
and we must learn from it..
success of a farmer...
there was a farmer who grew superior quality
and award-winning corn in his farm
he entered his corn into the state fair..
where the corn will won honours and prizes..
a newspaper reporter interviewed him
and learned something interesting about
how he grew his corn..
the reporter discovered that
the farmer shared his corn's seeds with his neighbour
"how can you afford to share your best seed corn with others, when they are also participating in the competition along with yours each year? "
the reporter asked..
the farmer replied..
"didn't you know?..
the wind picks up pollen grain from the ripening corn
and swirls it from field to field..
if my neighbours grow inferior, sub-standard and poor quality corn..
cross pollination will degrade the quality of my corn..
if i have to grow good corns..
i must help my neighbours to grow good corn too..
the farmer gave a superb insight
into the connections in life..
his corn cannot improve
unless his neighbours' corns also improves..
those who choose to be in harmony
must help their neighbours and their colleagues to be at peace..
those who choose to live wellmust help others to live well too..
the value of life is measured by the lives it touches..
success does not happen in isolation..
it is most often a participatory and collective process..
share the good practices, ideas and new knowledges
with your family, friends, team members, neighbours and all..
as they say,
success breed success..
