The Law Of The Seed

Take a look at an apple tree.

There might be five hundred apples on the tree, each with ten seeds. That's a lot of seeds! We might ask, "Why would you need so many seeds to grow just a few more trees?"

God has something to teach us here. It's telling us: "Most seeds never grow. So if you really want to make something happen, you 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, car, vacuum cleaner, insurance policy or idea.

You might meet a hundred acquaintances to find one special friend.

And you might need to attend ‘Program Produktiviti Bersepadu 3K’ (PPB3K) several times in order to grasp the lesson learned.

When we understand the 'Law of the Seed', we don't get so disappointed. We stop feeling like victims. We just need to understand them and work with them.
