Just like the rain that gives a new life to a dying plant, a smile and kind words can help someone who is about to give up.
– Mufti Ismail Menk
Life is like a garden. You plant the seeds (lessons) in the soil, fertilize them (by separating the wrong from right), water them (with positive thoughts and energy) to stimulate growth, and remove the weeds (or negative energy) that surrounds it, to help it develop strong roots (wisdom and knowledge).
If you find yourself in a negative atmosphere (similar to a barren piece of land), find a place (usually a group with positivity) you can grow and develop to begin your success.
