Success Breeds Success


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

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his best corn seed with all the farmers in the neighbourhood.

“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 asked.

“Why brother, it is really a matter of self-interest.” The farmer replied. “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. So if my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard and poor quality corn, the cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my own corn. That is why I am concerned that they plant only the very best.”


If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns.

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

So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life!

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

So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge with your family, friends, team members and neighbors and all…. since…

All that you give to others you are giving to your own self.

It is most often a participatory and collective process.


The value of a life is not measured by how long one lived.

It is measured by how many lives it touches……

On Relative Happiness

All of us are searching for happiness, but the idea of what makes us happy differs from person to person. A lifetime of misery can come from chasing the wrong kind of happiness. We often chase things that we think will make us happy, but in turn we make everyone — including (eventually) ourselves — miserable.   A person, when he is […]
