“I think everybody should study ants. They have an amazing four-part philosophy. Never to give up, look ahead, stay positive, and do all you can.” – Jim Rohn

I woke up this morning to find a long brown line on my kitchen table. My attention was drawn to it because that table is always left immaculately white.

So what could it be? Close observation revealed that it was a column of small red ants, attracted by tiny honey drops on the table.

Out of curiosity, I stood a little while to observe them. The ants were not only so disciplined as to maintain a particular route; I noted that everyone had a duty to perform, either guiding those working or participating in getting the work done.

I couldn’t help but admire the diligence of the humble ants as they constantly, uninterruptedly and tirelessly, moved backward and forwards, focused on getting their food to destination.

It was amazing. I observed the selfless love for the success of overall objectives.

They demonstrated that even a tiny heart is big enough to love, to help and to care about others.

My friend, observe the way of the ants, and you’ll notice the readiness to share by carrying their prey home.

Everything they do is for the commonwealth – no room for selfishness as they work tirelessly to make the most of every opportunity.


If you do your work the way ants do theirs – by tiny but untiring and regular additions – success is a matter of time.

There are many lessons to learn from the ant, and one sure one is diligence.

So, wherever you find yourself, at home or work, imitate the ant –
Be Diligent!

Did you know? – A diligent person is self-motivated.
