Are you a farmer, or are you a hunter? A hunter would venture out into the wild, rifle in hand, ready to bring home the much-needed food for the family. Sometimes, the Hunter is successful in their quest and is well fed, some days the Hunter will come home empty-handed and left starved for the next few days. A Farmer, on the other hand, will plant the seeds and take the time to let them grow over a longer period of time. In the meantime, the Farmer will nurture the crops, feeding them with water and treating them with care. He continues this process over and over again to the point he is always harvesting and never left hungry.
