“Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, which having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest.” Proverbs 6:6-8
The bible clearly encourages us to apply the hardworking characteristic of the ants. This means we should consistently work and be wise. We should consider the great attitude of the ant. Even if you are smart and kind, if your hands and body are as heavy as metal blocks, you may not reach your destination and goals. There are other people who are not really some kind of geniuses but achieve success because of constant hard work.
Teamwork is one great quality ants do have. Even though they are tiny species, they can overwhelmed bigger species in terms of survival. Ants are organized and systematic – attributes that a business organization should have. They can also stand and can do their jobs even when they are alone and there are no commanders or supervisors around. In other words, they are self-reliant (a quality that will save cost of supervision inside a business organization.
Ants follow the “law of farm” in terms of achieving their goals. It means that they do the step by step process of accomplishing a particular goal and they don’t intend to be reckless trying to short-cut the method of reaching that goal. This means a lot of waiting and patience on the part of ants. Some people are indolent that they escape the planting part (procedures) and jump to the harvesting part (objectives) of attaining success. People should not just become great dreamers, they must become workers like ants who walk or run constantly on the road to their success until that success is finally realized.
