Let us take the example of an apple tree to understand the law of seed, have a look at an apple tree. There might be 500 apples on the tree, each with 10 seeds. That’s a lot of seeds. We might ask why would you need so many seeds to grow just a few more trees? Nature has something to teach us here. It is telling us “most seeds never grow ” so if you really want to make something happen, you had better try more than once.
This might mean –
-You will attaned 20 interviews to get the job.
-You will interview 40 people to find one good employee.
-You will talk to some 50 people to sell one house, car, vaccume cleaner, insurance policy or idea.
-You might meet a 100 aquainatances to find one special friend.
-When we understand the “law of a seed ” We don’t get so dissappointed.
-We stop feeling like victims. Laws of nature are not things to take personally.
-We most need to understand them and work with them.
-In a nutshell – successful people fail more often. They plant more trees.
