Bend, Not Break

This book is so good that I felt compelled to blog about it.  This book is for anyone who has had what seems like insurmountable obstacles placed in front of them, yet persevered.  It is a book about finding your inner strength.

Below are a few of my favorite passages from the book as these alone will motivate most to read the entire book.

“It gave me comfort to call to mind the Taoist teaching Shanghai Papa had asked me to memorize years earlier about the three friends of winter.  The image of the pine tree, evergreen in winter and always standing straight, reminded me to be strong.  The plum tree was my favorite.  I loved to see its crimson red blossoms lying bright against the crisp white snow the morning after a storm.  One winter day, watching me marvel at the delicate flowers in our scholar garden, Papa said, ‘This is what courage looks like: to blossom when none others dare because they could easily die from the cold.  Courage is the heart refusing to fear.’  I hadn’t really nderstood his words then, but I did now.  Then there was bamboo, the most popular plant in the region where I grew up.  Shanghai Papa had said that I must be like bamboo, bending from the prevailing wind, but never breaking.  Perhaps he had predicted then that something terrible would happen to me, and had had the foresight to instill in me the values that I would need to overcome atrocities.”

Ping Fu was torn away from her loving adopted family at eight years old during the Cultural Revolution in China.  She was forced to live in a dormitory which became home to what were called “the black elements” those that were downcast during the revolution.  At eight years old Ping Fu became the sole supporter and provider of her four year old sister Hong.  Ping and her sister, and millions of others in China lived in desperate poverty for years, eating rationed moldy rice.  Ping was humiliated, raped, and stepped on throughout her childhood.  Education and reading was forbidden.  Ping Fu’s story is jaw-dropping.  She is eventually exiled from her country and comes to the United States.  Miraculously she makes her way through college, has a child, and builds an amazing empire called Geomagic – a company that is the leader in 3D imaging technology.

Bend, Not Break is one of those rare books that I just could not put down.  Below are additional quotes that resonated with me…

“Feeling nauseated and disappointed in myself, I walked in Xixi’s room and watched as she slept.  I had given birth to her.  My responsibility to her was unconditional and I was fully committed.  Yes, while I had given birth to Geomagic as well, I had abandoned it in a moment of insecurity.  I felt that my integrity was being tested.  I was not a quitter.  Now I must take responsibility for Geomagic as I would for my daughter.”

Ping was eventually named Entrepreneur of the Year by Inc. Magazine.  However, the entrepreneurial road has never been easy.  She is candid throughout the book about her struggles and her triumphs.

“As I dealt with various employee issues during those dark hours, I kept reminding myself: it’s all about love.  Blaming others, being fearful and angry, acting vengefully, building resentment, destroying trust – these negative responses to trying situations suck us into a downward spiral and sap our energy, like water spinning down a drain.  The only way to triumph in business and in life is to love what we do, and love our customers, our colleagues, our investors, and our community.  Love even the people who drive us crazy, those who undermine us, and those who fail us, offering them compassion and forgiveness.”

“With my classmates, we discussed how there are two kinds of people.  A ‘sunrise person’ goes through life open to the idea that the best may still be coming.  A ‘sunset person’ on the other hand, believes that the present is always sloping downhill.  We reassured each other that we would be sunrise people and prevent the past from contaminating our future.”

There was so many amazing entrepreneurial nuggets in the book that I can’t do any justice in just one post.  Do yourself a service and get this book….it will change your perspective, which is the first step toward changing your life.
