3_lessons_Aesop_Ant

Aesop’s fable of the Ant and the Grasshopper is a wonderful exemplar of how success is achieved, even if the stars of the fable or insects.

 

  1. The harder you work the luckier you get

This principle existed hundreds of years before the Roman philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca, when he proclaimed, ‘Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.’ The ant prepared for the imminent winter, while the grasshopper just played around.

 

  1. Follow your vision

It is of vital importance to prepare for the future that you want today. The difficulty lies in the fact that we would not be able to see the effects of our progress immediately. It will take some time to assess whether our progress is working or not. Sometimes it may appear that your effort is not being matched by your rewards, and yet you must persevere regardless. It is a smart thing to set smaller milestones and achievement targets. This is important, because on some occasions your goals and approach will need to change and you must be flexible enough to change.

 

  1. Stay true to your values

Only you can determine what your values are, and to find out more about how to discover your values you can see here – http://anisometric-inc.com/discover-your-values/ and this is an essential thing to grasp, because both the ant and the grasshopper were being true to their values, although they behaved in completely different ways. Therefore their results were a result of their values.
