5 Life Lessons from Dr. Suess for Farmers

If you’ve always wanted to farm…


  1. Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.

There really  isn’t anyone out there who is more you than YOU are. No one else can think for you, farm for you, or experience life for you. Your choice to farm will impact not only your life but the lives of so many others. Nobody else on the planet has exactly the same dream as yours, so stay true to yourself.


  1. Why fit in when you were born to stand out?

In farming, it’s very easy to fit in, do what everyone else is doing… and get what everyone else gets. By simply expressing ideas and beliefs that are uncommon and even going against the grain, you can change that status quo. So don’t be content just to farm the way everyone else is doing it – seek and create your farm business to stand out – anything is possible!


  1. You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

It’s your thoughts that take you where you want to go in life. Listen to your guts and instincts to choose your own farming path. The great part is that we live in a world where sharing and connection to unique business models and innovations provide for many directions to choose from.


  1. It’s better to know how to learn, than to know.

If you know how to learn, you can pretty much learn anything you need to know in order to farm. So there’s no point in filling your head with a bunch of things you don’t absolutely need to know, much better to have the skill of being able to get the information you need. Technology makes the task easier if you have learned how to use it.


  1. Today I shall behave, as if this is the day I will be remembered.

Today could be the day that you pull off that amazing feat that puts you in the history books. If you’re a farmer, you’re already doing something that matters to a whole lot of people. Create the feeling that today could be the day you’re remembered for, for that’s the only way it can really happen. Bring those expectations to each day of your life. There’s no better time than today to do the things that you’ll be remembered for.
