The Law of the Seed
Take a look at an apple tree. There might be five hundred apples on the tree, each with ten seeds. You 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 that you`ll meet a hundred kids at school before try more find once special friend, or you`ll try on ten pairs of shoes to get a perfect fit. It also means successful people fail more often - they plant more seed! In addition, the Law of the Seed says, "You reap your harvest after you do the work." You dig the soil, sow the seeds, water them(effort), wait a while(patience), and then pick your beans. Effort plus patiences equals results.
Sometimes we forget this principle. We ask, "If I plant beans today, what will I get back tomorrow?" The answer is: "Wet bean seeds." The Law of the Seed says, "You plant today and harvest later." Plant beans now, and pick beans in four months. Fred says, "If I enjoy school, then I would really work hard. But I don`t like it, so I don`t work." Wrong, Fred! You only start to enjoy it AFTER, not BEFORE, you put in the work. That`s when you start to feel good about it. In other words, effort first, harvest second. It`s a principle to live by. When we understand the Law of the Seed, we don`t get so disappointed. We stop feeling like victims. Laws of nature are unavoidable, so we just need to understand them and work with them.
