When a newspaper reporter interviewed a farmer who grew Award-Winning maize each year and entered his maize in the Agricultural show, it was revealed that the farmer shared his seed with his neighbours. Amazed, the reporter asked, “how can you afford to share your best seed with your neighbours when they are entering their maize in competition with yours each year?’
The farmer smiled knowingly and explained in a polite manner, “The wind picks up pollen from the ripening maize and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbours grow inferior maize, Cross-Pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my maize. If I am to grow good maize, I must help my neighbours grow a good crop too.”
So it is with our lives. Those who want to live meaningfully and well, we must help enrich the lives of others. Why must we be selfish and not let others grow and be happy. For the value of a life, is always measured by the lives it touches and those who choose to be happy, must try to help others find happiness too. The welfare of each one is bound up with the welfare of all.
Call it power of collectivity or a principle of success or Call it a law of life. The fact remains, ‘None of us truly wins, until we all win’. Know this secret as you grow older! In life, when you help the people around you to be good, you surely become the best. REAL HAPPINESS COMES WHEN YOU MAKE OTHERS HAPPY.
