A Story that will Motivate you!

16 replies
There is a nice Chinese fable which goes something like this:

A farmer once planted a bamboo seed on to the ground and then the watered
and fertilizers on to it took care of it for the whole growing season. At
the end of the season the farmer noticed that the seed did not
germinate and did not show up any signs of a sprout so much as an
inch off the ground.

Without losing hope he kept on watering it for the second season and
took care of it. Still nothing happened. This went on for the next two
seasons and on the fifth season the farmer noticed that the seed
germinated and grew into a bamboo tree as high as ninety feet in
about six weeks.

The moral of the story is that no matter how worse you think your
predicament is, don’t give up hope. Keep at your work, you may never
know you are actually on the path for success and that might just be
around the corner. Had the farmer lost hope and picked the seed out
of the ground he would have lost the tree but he did not and he kept
his patience and got his reward for it at the end of the firth year.

    That's a nice story. It's sometimes easy to lose sight of what we're doing. My mum used to dig up an onion she had just planted to see if it was growing yet. The onion never did grow.

    Nice story. You don't really know how long the roots is and when it starts to grows it will surely grow faster every day. Like planting your business or your company. It sure takes a lot of patience and hard work. And in the end, whatever you sow you will surely reap and enjoy the harvest.
