I almost failed my own guidance by calling this thread - Don't pick your fruit until ts ripe
Constantly I focus on positive wording, instead of writing what not to do by using don't and shouldn't, or can't. Personally I feel It's much easier to learn the correct way of doing things when there is more focus towards the correct way.
Along with the temptations of don'ts, we become over excited with small achievements. When we see fruit growing, we pick at it too early. Trying to do something with it when it is not ready.
Maybe this is half the problem in society today. People become tempted by the don'ts and can'ts, and try to jump ahead of the game thinking they already have what it takes. Only to be disappointed because they haven't enough preparation to take on a challenge, or satisfy their audience. Then leaving a sour taste.
Maybe people trying to achieve success, wealth, freedom, or extreme fitness need to grow into the expert position they want. Many people want to be the best of the best before they are the best. Whether or not you will ever be the best, does not matter. What does matter is that you keep pushing forward with the things you enjoy and make an expert out of yourself.
In other words - You might not grow the biggest fruit on the tree, but at least you'll have enough fruit for you and your family for years.
If you want to be an athlete - Push hard, be competitive, but don't expect the best and give up because of humiliation.
If you want to succeed in the stock market - Be mindful of your investments, the volatility, the news, and only pick when its ripe. Similar to when you successful profit, you are still not an expert, and the money you have is only a baby. Nourish your baby until the fruit is ready to pick at.
If you want to start a supermarket -- Well,, I guess you just need a wholesale connection for all your fruit.... Okay, you get the point, right?
