Stories that inspired me – PartI (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?” Nature has something to teach us here.

It’s telling us: “Most seeds never grow. So if you really want to make something happen, you had better try more than once.”

This might just 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.
  • And you might meet a hundred acquaintances to find one special friend.

When we understand the “Law of the Seed”, we don’t get so disappointed. We stop feeling like victims. Law of nature are not things to take personally. We just need to understand them – and work with them.

Successful people fail more often. They plant more seeds.

  1. “Successful people fail more often. They plant more seeds”

    very True, I would like to give one example-
    There was an actor, who use to work in B grade movies (started with Party at Kitty and Stud’s (1970) porn movie),
    he wanted to be great actor but he never got chances in A grade movies so he decided to write one story which would best suit his character and took that story to many directors but almost all of them refused and some them wanted to buy his story but did’nt liked him to act, after meeting with more than 1000 directors, he finally made it and we got great movie of all time – hit –

    Rocky (1976),( the winner of Best Picture for the year. Stallone had written the screenplay and had tried to sell it to a Hollywood studio for years. Rocky was nominated for ten Academy Awards in all, including two for Stallone himself, for Best Actor and for Best Original Screenplay. In addition to winning Best Picture, Rocky won for Best Director and Best Film Editing. Rocky cost about US$1.1 million to make, and grossed about US$225 million worldwide.)

    Currently working on,
    Rambo IV is an upcoming film, slated for release in 2006. It is currently in pre-production.
    Sylvester Stallone, who plays the part of Rambo, was 36 years old when the first film in the series was released. He will be 60 when Rambo IV is released. The last Rambo movie was released in 1988.

    If had given up after one, two or better to say thousands attempt then we never come to know who is Sylvester stallone.

    So I think law of the seed is applicable everywhere
