One of the wisest men to ever tread this earth is the explicitly intelligent and wealthy Jewish King named Solomon.
His wisdom, cutting across almost all facets of life can be found in some of his literary works.
After a careful study of the ants, be wrote in one of his books:
“take a lesson from the ANTS, learn their ways and become wise! Though they have no Prince or governor or ruler to make them work, they work hard all summer gathering food for winter, but you lazybones, how long will you sleep? When will you wake up? A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest- then will poverty pounce on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber.”
Four (4) wisdom-lessons from the ants in this story are:
- A- Attitude of Initiative
- N- Nature of Integrity
- T- Thirst for Industry
- S- Source of Insight
Ants are entrepreneurial in nature, and through personal leadership, they maximize their lives and take action to create solutions that ensure abundance, because poverty and scarcity will always take advantage of those who love to rest, sleep and relax when it’s time to work.
