The Parable of the Corn Seeds

This is one of my favourite stories and one I tell to people again and again when it comes to finding purpose in what we’re doing and also when thinking about how to improve life in general.

I believe that, if we want to change something, we all must grow together and that we can do that best, when we help each other out. If you think so too, send me a đź’Ś message, and we can see how we can support each other.

Here’s the story:

There was an old farmer who grew excellent quality corn.
Every year he won the award for the best-grown corn.
One year a news 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 corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.
“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 neighbours grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbours grow good corn.”
So is with our lives…
Those who want to live meaningfully & well must help enrich the lives of others, for the 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 each, is bound up with the welfare of all.
-Call it the power of collectivity…
-Call it a principle of success…
-Call it a law of life.
The fact is, none of us truly wins until we all win!!
