Once upon a time, there were two neighbors. One of them was a retired teacher and another was an insurance agent. Both of them had planted different plants in their garden. The insurance agent was giving more water to his plants, then retired teacher.
One day, during the night, there was a heavy rain and storm. Next morning, the insurance agent saw that his plants came off from the roots. But, the retired teacher’s plants were not damaged at all and were standing firm.
The insurance agent went to the retired teacher and asked, “We both grew the same plants together, I actually looked after my plants better than you did for yours. Still, my plants came off from the roots, while yours didn’t. How is that possible?”
The retired teacher smiled and said, “You gave your plants more attention and water, but because of that they didn’t need to work themselves for it. While I gave them just an adequate amount of water and, because of that, their roots went deeper and that made their position stronger. That is why my plants survived”.
