Chapter 12 - The Subonscious Mind

I came across a story which I will share here but I do
not know who wrote it. 

"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 honour and prizes.

Once 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 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, 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 neighbours grow good corn.”

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of
life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbour’s corn 
also improves. So it is in the other dimensions! Those who 
choose to be at harmony must help their neighbours and 
colleagues to be at peace. Those who choose to live well 
must help others to live well.

Success does not happen in isolation. It is very often a 
participative and collective process."

Earl Nightingale wrote "Whatever we plant in our subconscious 
mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day 
become a reality."

The farmer knew what he wanted, fixed it in his mind and
put out the action to achieve it.  

Zig Zigler stated “You will get all you want in life, 
if you help enough other people get what they want.”

This is true in building a successful business. We cannot 
build a success on our own.   We need a coach, a mentor
and a team working together in harmony.
