Law of the Seed
This is a very good piece of thought
The Law of the Seed
Take a look at an apple tree.
There might be five hundred
apples on the tree and each
apple has ten se...
We might ask, "Why would you
need so many seeds to grow
just a few
more apple trees?"
Nature has something to
teach us here.
It's telling us:

“Not all seeds grow. In life, 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, one car, one vacuum
cleaner, one insurance policy, or
a business idea
And you might meet a
hundred acquaintances just
to find one special friend.
When we understand the
"Law of the Seed", we don't
get so disappointed.
AMRA’s Law II: The Law of the Seed
Law of the seed : Whoever sows sparingly
will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows
gen...
We stop
feeling like
victims.
We learn how to deal with
things that happen to us.
Laws of nature are not things to take personally.

We just need to
understand them and work with them.
IN A NUTSHELL
Successful people fail more
often. But they plant more
seeds.
When things are beyond your control,
here's something that you must
NOT DO so as to avoid misery in your life:
- You must not decide how
you think the world SHOULD
be.
- You must not make rules
for how everyone SHOULD
behave.
- Then, when the world
doesn't obey your rules, you
get angry!
- That's what miserable
people do!
On the other hand, let's say you
expect that:

-Friends SHOULD
return favors.
-People SHOULD
appreciate you.
- Your husband or
best friend SHOULD
remember your
birthday.
These expectations may sound
reasonable. But often, these
things won't
happen!
So you end up
frustrated and
disappointed.
There's a better
strategy:
Demand less, and
instead,
have preferences!
For things that are beyond
your control, tell yourself:
"I would prefer this, but if
that happens, it’s OK too!"
This is really a
change in mindset. It
is a shift in attitude,
and it gives you
more peace of mind
...
You prefer that
people are polite ...
but when they are
rude, it doesn't ruin
your day. You prefer
sunshine ... but if it
...
To become happier, we
either need to:

a) Change the world, or
b) Change our thinking.
It is easier to change our
Thinking...
IN CLOSING
It is not the problem that is
the issue, but rather it is
your attitude attending to
the problem that is the
pr...
It's not what
happens to you
that determines
your happiness.

It's how you think about
what happens to you!
