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.
