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 should better try more than once."
This might 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.
IN A NUTSHELL
Successful people fail more often. They plant more seeds.
