When we study the ant we can learn much about working diligently to attain our goals. The ant toils away constantly making progress toward his ultimate goal. Unfortunately we have more to be accountable for in life than the ant, and we want to create balance in our life. Creating a declaration statement that inspires you to action is a great tool to use when you get weary. I love this declaration: “I am a lion and I refuse to walk, talk, and sleep with the slothful.” It gets me excited about proceeding toward my goals. In entrepreneurship you must be a self starter. Successful entrepreneurship takes discipline; however, we can learn from the ant and work diligently, wisely, and remain focused on the outcome we desire.
