Success one day at a Time - Lesson from a Farmer - Ferndale California
A young man from the city graduated from college with a degree in journalism and got a job at a small town newspaper.
One of his first assignments was to interview an old farmer who lived twenty miles outside of town.
As he sat with the grizzled man on his front porch, the young journalist looked at his notepad and starting asking his questions. One of the first he asked was, "Sir, what time do you go to work in the morning?"
The old farmer chuckled and replied, "Son, I don't go to work. I'm surrounded by it.?
We can learn a lesson from the old farmer. Opportunities are a lot like his work. They are everywhere. But the problem is that we often don't have the eyes to see them.
As you approach each day, look around. Be aware. If you don't see opportunities, remember that it's not because they aren't there. You're always surrounded by them. You simply need to open your eyes and see them. The act on them.
