When was the last time you saw ants reach an obstacle and give up with their heads down and head back to the ant hole to relax? Never. How much will an ant gather during the summer to prepare for winter? All that it possibly can.
Imagine what you could accomplish if you never quit and always did all that you could do. Everybody should study ants and their philosophy it’s simple, but powerful. Ants never quit. That’s a good philosophy to look up to. If ants are headed somewhere and you try to stop them; they’ll always look for another way. They’ll climb over, they’ll climb under and they’ll climb around. They will always keep looking for another way to sustain them.
Ants anticipate winter all summer. You can’t be so naive as to think summer will last forever. Therefore ants gather their winter food in the midst of summer. It is so important, to look ahead and be prepared. During the winters, ants remind themselves, “This won’t last long; we’ll soon be out of here” and on the first warm day, the ants are out. If it turns cold again, they’ll dive down, but then they always come out on the next warm day because they can’t wait to get out. Ants think “Do all you possibly can. Never give up, look ahead, and stay positive". What a neat philosophy of Patience, Perseverance & Persistence!
Failure happens. The best thing is to learn from your mistakes and keep moving forward. If you have a dream, or even a hurdle, don't try to control it, manipulate it, fake it or even force it. Envision it and just be the best you can be, and let it work itself out naturally. It always will.
Dear Students, it is my hope that you come to this great institution not only to become intellectual geniuses but also to become leaders with a heart full of compassion, leaders who can bring about a change in the lives of people whom you come across later in the course of life. Let your schooling help you understand your responsibility and become active participants in life.
Live your life to the fullest extent. Move out and play in the sunshine; use social media wisely and for good causes. Connect with your friends, connect with your family and connect deeply with Nature. To be fully alive one must be sensitive to the Earth because our lives are closely interwoven with our Nature. We draw positive energy from it. I pray that a special positive energy is passed on to us all from our Mother Earth and let our education help us to permeate this positivity wherever we go!
Let us learn from the tiny ants the importance of Patience, Perseverance & Persistence.
