The Secrets of the Rainmaker
When the Rainmaker arrived in the parched village, he set up his tent and disappeared inside for four days. On the fifth day, the rain started to fall. The people of the village asked what he did to accomplish this miracle.
The Rainmaker replied, "I have done nothing."
And so the story begins.
In our modern age, we seem the opposite of the Rainmaker. We busy ourselves to the point of exhaustion, give up sleep to do even more, rush here, rush there, go everywhere, and get nowhere. We believe that an enormous effort is required to achieve success, and if we fail, it is because we did not work hard enough.
The Rainmaker, however, teaches us that the most successful people do not necessarily work harder. In fact, they are often more at ease than the people around them. The truth is that success comes to those who find a balance between effort and ease, striving and compromise. For those who know the Rainmaker's secrets, prosperity seems more like the result of good luck or being in the right place at the right time--the pieces just come together.
Using simple metaphors and exercises--and offering immediate applications--Chin-Ning Chu explains how you can discover the Rainmaker's power of doing less and achieving more. She teaches the arts of fine-tuning and focusing your actions, putting your mind at ease and seeing the fun in the game of life, and discovering the unlimited, miracle-producing power of giving in to and working with--rather than fighting against--your successful destiny.
