“Ant Philosophy”


First Part of Philosophy:

Ants Never Quit

If they are headed somewhere and if you try to stop them, they will look for another way.

They will climb over; they will climb under or they will climb around.

They keep looking for another way. They never quit.



We should never quit looking for a way to get where we are supposed to go nor stop striving to achieve what we want to achieve.

God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.


“There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love; there’s only a scarcity of resolve to make it happen.” Wayne Dyer 


Second Part of Philosophy:

Ants Think Winter All Summer

We can’t be so naïve as to think summer will last forever.

So, ants keep gathering their winter food in the middle of summer.

We have got to think about the future as we enjoy the sun and sand.



It is important to be realistic and think ahead. We have to plan out our future goals and work on our plans to achieve those goals.


Third Part of Philosophy:  

Ants Think Summer All Winter

During winter, ants remind themselves, “This won’t last long; we will soon be out of here.”

At first warm day ants are out.

If it turns cold again, they’ll dive back down, but then they come out the first warm day.



Stay positive at all times. At times we may find it difficult to be positive. Nevertheless, we have to be positive because a negative mindset will have a cascading effect on all aspects of our lives including our health.

Positive attitude creates a chain reaction of positive thoughts.

A positive thought is the seed of a positive result.


Fourth Part of Philosophy:

All That You Possibly Can 

How much will the ant gather during the summer to prepare for the winter?

All that it possibly can.



Do all you can…and more!


In a Nutshell…

1) Never give up

2) Look ahead

3) Stay positive

4) Do all you can


An important lesson that we learn from ants is that, they work relentlessly and selflessly for the collective and common good of their entire community


Don’t be encumbered by history, just go out and do something wonderful.”

Know Your Value

Two important management lessons learnt from a five hundred rupee note. It happened some years ago. The speaker whipped out his wallet and pulled out a five hundred-rupee note. Holding it up, he asked, “Who wants this five-hundred-rupee note?”   Lots of hands went up. A slow chorus began to build as people began to […]
