Last year, over $150billion was spent on fertilizer.

In order to flourish, plants need the right environment.

We humans are the same.


In order to reach your full potential, change where you are and not who you are.

Plant yourself in an environment which doesn’t restrict your creativity and capability.

As Professor Shawn Achor of Harvard University says, if you surround yourself with people who are doing exactly what you want to be doing, you’ll go from “How could I possibly do that?” to “How could I possibly not?”


1. A beggar walks up to a well dressed woman who is shopping in Knightsbridge and says: “I haven’t eaten anything in four days.” She looks at him and says: “God I wish I had your willpower.”

2. Watching her mother as she tried on her new mink coat, the daughter protested, “Mum, do you realise that some poor, dumb beast suffered so that you could have that coat?” Her mother glared back at her and said, “Don’t talk about your father that way.”

3. My wife has a slight impediment in her speech – every now and then she stops to breathe.

4. A recent survey show that the commonest form of marriage proposal these days consists of: “You’re WHAT?!”

5. A truck stops to pick up a female hitchhiker. The driver opens the door and says: “Come on in. I’m not like the other ones that only let the good-looking girls have a ride.”

6. Have you ever noticed how so many of women’s problems can be traced to the male gender? MENstruation, MENopause, MENtal breakdown, GUYnaecology, HIMmorrhoids…

7. “It’s just too hot to wear clothes today,” said Jack, as he stepped out of the shower. “Honey, what do you think the neighbours would think if I mowed the lawn like this?” “That I married you for your money.”
