Jim Rohns Ant Philosophy
Jim Rohn’s Ant Philosophy and his lesson of the seasons are two philosophies that are almost inseparable. In fact, they seamlessly merge together. One of the main reasons for this is that an ant’s activity is usually dictated by the seasons. There are a few differences between the two, however, the philosophies complete each other.
The first Ant Philosophy is that ants never quit. When an ant’s path is blocked it doesn’t throw up its arms and say “oh well I guess I’ll just go home”. Ants will look for a different way until they find it. Ants explore all their options, and if something is blocking their path they’ll go up down or around until they get past the obstacle and get to where they’re headed.
The second Ant Philosophy is that ants think winter all summer. All summer long an ant is thinking “hurry, hurry, get the food bring it back, winters coming, get the food bring it back, hurry, hurry.” That’s why when you see an ant they’re always scurrying around in a big rush because they’re constantly preparing for the coming winter.
The third Ant Philosophy is that ants think summer in the winter. In the winter ants remind themselves, “This won’t last long, summer will soon be here and we’ll be out gathering food again.” When the first warm day arrives the ants will be out and about. If it gets cold again the ants will go back in the ground again but, as soon as they get a warm day they take that opportunity and get outside and get to work.
Here’s the last Ant Philosophy. How much do you think an ant will gather in the summer to prepare for the coming winter? An ant will gather as much as he possibly can! An ant doesn’t stop and say, “Well that’s enough for me, I think I’ll stop here”. An ant goes out and gets as much food for the winter as time will allow. What a great philosophy!
The humble ant has a fantastic philosophy, and I think we can all learn a lot from our little friends; don’t quit, look ahead, stay positive, and do as much as you can. These are great philosophies that everyone should strive to incorporate into their lives on both a personal and a business level.
