[The content of this blog entry is not mine, I received it thru a email, thought of keeping it somewhere for reference. Nice theme]

There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his
farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won
honors. & Prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something
interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the
farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

“How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when
they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” The reporter
asked. “Why brother”

” The farmer replied, “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen grains
from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors
grow inferior, sub-standard & poor quality corn, cross-pollination will
steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I
must help my neighbors to grow good corns.”
The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn
cannot improve unless his neighbors’ corn also improves. So it is in the
other dimensions and areas of life!
Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues
to be at peace. Those who choose to live well must help others live well.
The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches…
Success does not happen in isolation; it is most often a participatory and
collective process. So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge
with your family, friends, team members and neighbors & all. As they say:
“Success breeds Success.”
