Advice From A Corn Maze
Advice from a Corn Maze
Just like anything in life, we have much to learn from the corn maze!
Be outstanding in your field. A light-hearted pun with an important message: work hard and soak up all the information you can so you can excel in the areas you enjoy.
Grow where you are planted. Like all plants, corn cannot grow where a seed has not been planted. You don’t see corn stalks growing out in our Courtyard or Barnyard area, where only grass has been planted. You also wouldn’t see a corn stalk growing in the middle of a wheat field, where only wheat has been planted. Likewise, take every opportunity to grow and learn in every situation you find yourself. You may not be exactly where you want to be, but you can make the most of any opportunity.
Embrace the twists and turns of life. Like a corn maze, life has many twists and turns; and often, we have to take a winding path to get to where we’re going. The journey is an important part of the destination—so embrace it! How can you learn from the experiences and challenges you face? How can you learn to enjoy the little things in life along the way? Make the most of every opportunity!
Stand tall and proud. Corn is one of the tallest growing vegetables, and our corn is taller than most… Some years, the stalks come in at over 12 feet high! Corn stalks don’t slink around on the ground when they’re unsure, they always stand up tall. Remember to be proud of who you are and what you’ve accomplished—stand tall!
Expect the unexpected… you never know what’s just around the corner. We always recommend looking around every corner you come across in the corn maze, because our Maze Supervisor loves to hide mailboxes in tricky dead-ends and along unassuming side paths! Even if you don’t find a mailbox, you may cross paths with a friend or discover one of many fun activities located inside the maze. We can’t know what’s ahead in life either, so buckle up and hold on for the ride!
Get back up when you get blown over. Corn has a remarkable resistance to severe weather. Many times we’ve seen the stalks get blown over by high winds, only to stand back up after a few days of good sunshine and moisture. Even when life’s got you down, get back up and keep going—the end is always in sight!
Always keep an ear out. Listen to your friends, family and others with experience when it comes to seeking advice. But also listen to what someone else may be telling you when they come to you for advice. You never know when you might be that friend that someone needs at a crucial moment.
