道德经Chapter43: The softest thing in the world overcomes the hardest

“Tao Te Ching/Lao Tzu” – Chapter 43: 天下之至柔,驰骋天下之至坚。

Water is the softest and weakest while benefiting and embracing the whole world, but how can it be defeated? The sharpest knife can take lives, cut steel, but never able to cut water apart.

Stones are strong, but consistent drops of water wear holes in the stone.

The tide rises and falls, the stones become the pebbles.

Steel against steel, the result has to be lose-lose.

While the fast-moving wheels need to break down, we use very soft brake pads.

In daily life and business, the #principle is the same: #Perseverance leads to success, as it enables the practice in achieving a huge return on a very small investment; a big payoff from a small effort.

Human hearts could be our softest gifts from the universe. And those who win the hearts of the people win the world.

Stay positive. Smart your investment and win.
