Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise
Even king Solomon exhorted lazy people in
Courtesy of myrmecologists, many people have considered ants as the most nuisance insects but I went ahead to study more about their characters.
You see why God tells the sluggard to go and look at the little ants: it
is that when he sees them so busy, he may be ashamed of himself for
being idle, and learn to be “wise,” or diligent in whatever he
The behaviour of ants in these colonies has taught us about so many things that am gonna enfold them in details.
The ants communicate to each other through pheromones sounds and touch. For instance, when a food source is exhausted, no new trails are marked by returning ants and the scent slowly fades away, prompting other ants to explore new routes. Insects lay and follow pheromones trails . If you try to step on insects that are trying to collect fallen grains on the floor, You will notice that they scatter in different directions suddenly. They communicate faster and effectively to alert each other for the attack.
In other words our communication in all places be it work place schools or at home should follow the example of the communication done by ants. All forms and lines of communication should be followed for the correct message to be conveyed in time.
COMMITMENT TO WORK.
Those who are lazy bone have no place in the society .Just
kneel down on the grass beside them, and notice how they work! You will
see one little fellow creeping along as fast as he can go, with a grain
of sand in his mouth, perhaps as large as his head. He does not stop to
rest, but when he has carried his grain to help build the hill, away he
goes for another. You may watch them all day and never see them idle at
all. Ants may be tiny but they can carry more than double their weight and withstand pressures up to 5,000 times greater than their own body weight. It appears ants are also smart. Laziness is forbidden in their kingdom.
Your body size does not matter at all, it is the capacity of your brain:how well you utilise it.
You may be having so many goals to achieve; if you don’t , then you are in trouble. Such goals may seem a bit hard to achieve and to way far from our capabilities. It’s in situations like these when people tend to shy away from what their real goal is and try to map out goals which are way easier to achieve.
I mean be pragmatic , set goal that are attainable , those that may end up frustrating and demoralizing you.
Don’t fret, only because you think the goals you set are intimidating you, unless they are unattainable , then make them look easier .Don’t succumb so easily to hardships.
“When there’s a will, there’s a way”. Think about how ants tackle their seemingly impossible tasks and made it possible.
TOGETHERNESS AND TEAMWORK.
The ant are very social insects which live in colonies of humongous groups. The ants do not leave each other while working.
They help each other to carry huge loads .Colonies of invasive ant species will sometimes work together and form super-colonies , spanning a very wide area of land. Ant colonies are sometimes described as superorganisms because they appear to operate as a single entity.
If ants were doing business then they could be the most successful because they encourage teamwork which promotes quality results.
No matter how smart you are, you can never make it alone. You need partners friends to hold you up and cherish you when you fall down.
The ants have a sense arranging their activities accordingly. You will notice that they are very organized the way they carry their loads.
They work in the same direction and they have to accomplish their tasks however big it is. Ants are awesome creatures as they are, but when humans get organized and work towards achieving one goal, they can move mountains!
We yearn for success in life and our business places, if we put this in place then success is in our hands.
Ants are clean and tidy insects. Some worker ants are given the job of taking the rubbish from the nest and putting it outside in a special rubbish dump. Each colony of ants has its own smell. In this way, intruders can be recognized immediately.
Ants must always get things done through organization communication and other ways.
There are three kinds of ants in a colony: The queen, the female workers, and males. The queen is the only ant that can lay eggs. The male ant’s job is to mate with future queen ants and they do not live very long afterwards. Once the queen grows to adulthood, she spends the rest of her life laying eggs!
Ant colonies also have soldier ants that protect the queen, defend the colony, gather or kill food, and attack enemy colonies in search for food and nesting space. Some jobs of the colony include taking care of the eggs and babies, gathering food for the colony and building the anthills or mounds.
It doesn’t matter how these tiny creatures accomplish their tasks. The thing is, get the job done at the end of the day.
They never stop working until they get the job done. amazing! isn’t it?
The more you finish other jobs the faster you move to other things that can help can help you succeed in achieving your dreams.
The ants have so many good characters that you can break down and integrate into your life for the betterment of the future.
I therefore urge us to learn these traits keenly and reflect them. Finally we have to implement the learnt traits in our daily life. Apparently,you should remember that reflecting and learning the concept behind it is one thing, but actually applying it is another.
Dear friends go investigate an learn these traits. You may leave a comment of your ideas about this to share with like I did.
