Success does not happen in Isolation !!!

There was a farmer who grew superior quality and award-winning corn.
Each year he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honor and

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learnt something
interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer
shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when
they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?" the reporter

"Why sir," said the farmer, "didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen from
the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow
inferior, sub-standard and poor quality corn, cross-pollination will
steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must
help my neighbors grow good corn."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the life. His corn cannot improve
unless his neighbor's corn also improves.

So it is in the other dimensions of our lives!

Those who choose to be at harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues
to be at peace. Those who choose to live well must help others to live well.

The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. Success does not
happen in isolation. It is very often a collective process. So share the
good quality corn.
