Farmer Peter won the gold medal for growing the best corn in the village. He became famous when the newspapers wrote about him. One day, a reporter was amazed to see that Peter was distributing his seeds to other farmers in the village.
“If you distribute your seeds to other farmers, how will you win the competition for growing the best corn next year?” the reporter asked. “Sir”, replied Peter, “the wind picks up pollen from crops and flowers and spreads it everywhere.” So, if my neighbors do not grow good crops, my field will suffer too.
Make Others Happy As Well
If I need to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors. The reporter realized how wise the farmer was. To be happy one must make other happy as well.
