Law of Seed

This is a good way to think if you want to be happy.

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, ideas, etc.
And you might meet a hundred acquaintances to find one special friend.

When we understand the Law of 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.

"Successful people fail more often. They plant more seeds."
