Please contact us for more details about how to apply for our one-to-one mentoring service.Fruitful Success came from a desire to improve the wellbeing of others. As Buddha said, “life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think.” In this, the best way to help others is to enable them to help themselves. That’s the mantra of Fruitful Success.The idea was started by David Johnson. He’s a long-time student of philosophy, starting out at 10 years old reading books on Hatha Yoga and eastern religions.It began with an apple. The first chapter of the first book he ever read on the subject imprinted still in memory: to take an apple and sit and silently study it for an hour. That might sound odd, but it taught him an important lesson – that our ideas of what we think things are, are wrong. In studying the apple, he understood that his idea of what an apple is was not what an apple is. That each apple is individual, unique, and not the projection of what he thought an apple should be.In this, we must recognise that everything in this world is individual and unique. That reality is a projection of the constructs we have in place within our own minds. Yet it’s often difficult to see that through the noise of the modern world. Our zeitgeist is one of growing consumerism and worsening mental wellbeing, where escapism and distraction from ourselves has become the norm.We’re losing ourselves in a sea of expectations that can never be met and, in doing so, bringing ourselves into inner conflict. We spend so much time looking outwards, seeking happiness externally, that we have forgotten that true happiness can only come from within.
