AMAZING STORY ABOUT NEIGHBOURLINESS
There was a man who grew high-quality maize in his large fields. Every year he took his excellent maize yield to the National food carnival where he won the Best yield award in Agriculture. One day a writer from a well-known magazine came to interview him about the techniques he employed to grow such award-winning maize. The Writer was surprised to hear the way he grew his maize. The man told the writer that he shared part of his maize seeds with the owners of his neighbouring fields. The writer was astonished and asked him, “What on Earth makes you give your best-quality maize to your neighbours while they participate in the carnival alongside you.” “I simply don’t understand this”, said the writer.
“Well”, said the man, “Don’t you know that this crop is insect and wind pollinated which means the insects and the wind transports the pollen from one crop to the other across the fields. If my neighbours grow low-quality and unhealthy crops then how can I expect my crops to grow healthy and of high-quality? For this reason I help my neighbours to grow good quality maize so that I can have good quality maize too” The explanation left the writer speechless and he was very much impressed by the wisdom of the man. He learned a great lesson that day.
The same is true with our lives. Desire for others what you desire for yourself to succeed.
This attitude can help all people live peacefully.
1. If you want to get good grades, help your friends get good grades too because when you help them with their studies you are actually revising your knowledge which will only make you an expert in that subject.
2. Employees who want to succeed at work should help their colleagues in their work too, by doing this not only is the employee appreciated for his own work, but is also recognized as a good and respectful human being in his company.
3. We should help our neighbours solve their problems if we expect our neighbours to show up when we face any problems.
And we are all each others neighbours in some way; we share our work spaces, we share the roads, we share the planet.
