Title: Success Does Not Happen In Isolation

There was a farmer who grew superior quality and award-winning corn. Each year he participated in the State Fair where it won honor and prizes.

One year 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 neighbors’.

"How can you afford to share your best seed Corn with your neighbors when they are entering the competition with you 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 neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard and poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my crop.

If I am to grow Good Corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His crop cannot improve unless his neighbor's crop also improves.

Moral:

Those who choose to be at Harmony must Help their Neighbors and colleagues to be at peace.

Those who choose to live well must help others to live well.
