The Ant's Story
But wait! What happens next? Caught between only one option, of taking it home where the treat should be, the little any struggles tirelessly to move the cube block of sugar. But don't you think it would need some help? I seriously do too. But one important lesson, it doesn't ask for help too early.
Whether it was actually a cube of sugar, smaller fragments or crumbs of a fluffy cake, the little ant maneuvers it with its hairy arms and runs rather slowly on its hind-arms.
Naturally, when you get close to your destination, you find people who are mow willing to help. They see the prize and are willing to invest for it. But when it was still not visible enough, you find fewer people willing to help. That was exactly what happened as the ant approached home with the food in its feathery jaws, he drew more strength from seeing the colony and when he saw six other ants approaching, he knew it was job well done.
But beyond just a folk story, there is/are lessons to be learnt. What are some lessons that nature has to teach us. What lesssons do plants, animals, insects, the atmosphere and climate, oceans and weather, etc, have to teach us?
Amazing Lessons From Nature
Insects - Ants, Bees
The ant does not give up too early
They do not ask for help too soon
- When you ask for help without even trying, you miss out the opportunity to learn. Your power of creativity dampens and gets less and less as long you continue being so.
- You weary other people when you ask too much, you become a burden or liability when you are too dependent on them.
- You may not always have the desired help at all times.
Some of the world's most creative people are the DIY(do it your own) category of people. However, whereas I do not condemn asking for help(after all, we all need it), you must not have the mindset that you cannot do it always.
