The Law of the Seed

Posted: June 17, 2007 in Personality Development

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 had 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.
