The Ant Philosophy (Jim Rohn).

"1. Ants NEVER QUIT.
If they're headed somewhere and you try to stop them; they'll look for another way.
They'll climb over, they'll climb under, and they'll climb around. They keep looking for another way.
(Lesson: Never quit looking for a way to get where you're supposed to go).
2. Ants think winter all summer.
You can't be so naive as to think summer will last forever. So ants are gathering in their winter food in the middle of summer.
An ancient story says, "Don't build your house on the sand in the summer." Why do we need that advice? Because it is important to be realistic. In the summer, you've got to think storm. You've got to think rocks as you enjoy the sand and sun.
(Lesson: Think ahead).
3. Ants think summer all winter.
During the winter, ants remind themselves, "This won't last long; we'll soon be out of here." And the first warm day, the ants are out. If it turns cold again, they'll dive back down, but then they come out the first warm day. They can't wait to get out.
(Lesson: Stay positive).
4. All you possibly can.
How much will an ant gather during the summer to prepare for the winter? All he possibly can.
(Lesson: Do all you possibly can)."
In a nut shell...
Work as a team like the ants...Together we can..
