“To see things in the seed, that is genius.” – Lao-Tzu
Life lessons from a seasoned gardener: Plant your seeds in fertile, well-tilled soil. Tend your garden with regular watering, ample sunshine and adjust care as necessary. Cultivate patience and when the first buds emerge, welcome them heartily. Continue this nourishing attention while flower or plant blossoms. If we try to apply these gardening lessons to our personal connections, we would focus on helping our family members, co-workers, friends — and even ourselves — realize our unique gifts and innate potential.
Do you overlook human potential OR see the seed of greatness in each person?
