“Collaborate to be Successful”
A farmer grew award winning corn. Each year he entered his corn in the state fair where it won the blue ribbon,
One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it.
The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbours.
“How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbours when they are entering in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked. “Why sir,” said the farmer, “didn’t you know?
The wind picks up the pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbours grow inferior corn, cross- pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn.”
“So, if I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbours grow good corn.”
So it is with our lives. Those of us who live meaningfully and well will help enrich the lives of others, for value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others find happiness for the welfare of all.
Call it principle of success.
The fact is, none of us truly win until we all win.
