The ant is a great and industrious creature, small in size, but wise in its ability to optimise its time, skills and resources. There are more than 5,000 species of ants found globally with each, full of wisdom.
The Bible even portrays the tiny ant as a symbol for wisdom and hard work because of its ability to survive even the harshest conditions. It mentions the ant twice, both times in the Book of Proverbs. “Go to the ant, you lazybones; consider its ways, and be wise” (Proverbs 6:6) this can be extended to verse 15. And later the ant is praised for its wisdom in Proverbs 30:24-35.
Today many of us are chasing celebrities and big men in our societies and countries to learn their ways not thinking we can learn from this creature. The ant’s lesson is mind-blowing and so we human beings should wise up ant learn from it.
I have compiled this 7 Great wisdom of Ants that will change your life forever.
Ability to Prepare Ahead
Ants prepare their food in summer. Ants don’t procrastinate; they do what they need to do when to do it. They know that summer is the only time to gather food for the other seasons and they work to gather food during summer.The ant is smart; it saves and invests in the future.
You have to think ahead and plan wisely for your future. What you do or do not do today creates your tomorrow. So, I and you have to know that it is good to invest our future lives into something profitable to help us feel secure in the future, we shouldn’t wait for a catastrophe to hit us before we take a step.
Teamwork and unity
Ants know that they can accomplish more by working together than by working alone. They set goals and work together to achieve it.
Ants Share everything Together.
Ants share everything together. Ants never eat alone and nor do they hoard food.As soon as the food has been discovered the message is sent to all the colony and they get corporately active to assist in collecting everything they need. As humans we are known to do our best, at times, to hide it in a place that no one will find it and hoard away for ourselves.
Only some have truly experienced the pleasure of sharing with our fellow brothers and sisters and tasted this pleasure of sharing. Imagine, for a moment , if even just half of mankind, could work together in sharing everything, what a great world this would be to live in.
Diligent and hardworking
Ants teach us the value of hard work. Laziness does nothing but encourage us to procrastinate and remain in a state of lack and apathy. Ants are never lazy! Neither are they poor nor hungry. Their efforts and hard work sustains them. If we strive to be diligent and work hard, our lives will be blessed physically, spiritually and financially.
Another lesson to learn from ants, is how they care for each other. We must learn from the ants, how they want each other successful by showing support to help anyone who is in need. If you wish your friend good, then surely good things shall come unto you as well.
Ants Are Organized
Isn’t it amazing how even when there are so many ants carrying a single object, they seem to be moving the same direction?
They are so organized in how they carry out their tasks that they are able to accomplish it no matter how big the task is.
If you’re a business leader or owner, you should make it a point to get your team organized and working towards the same goals. If you can make this happen, it’ll just be a matter of time before you’ll start experiencing the success that you’ve been yearning for.
Ants dream big
Imagine that ants can build an ant hill as big as or even bigger than a human house. They are great architects. They know what they want. They dream big and are ready to give it all it takes to achieve it.
The next time you see ants, do not squash it immediately. Think about your life. Learn a lesson from the ant.
