An ant is never an achiever!

A way of thinking, is called a perspective... a view is called a perspective, to see what is in front of you is your thought! Your vision, but that same thing can be your greatest strength and weakness too!

I have heard many a sucess stories of people who have achieved all from nothing... But then I wonder? Is it disproportionately blown up, or are they real achievers? By the size of achievements people have made, by seeing their future is huge... I have to believe that the results are not blown up, nor is the comparison, as from where he started and where he has ended!

Now then what can be the reason? I have always felt, why people like me are non achievers are because I am like an ant! I work in a colony, surrounded and supported by my co workers, and I am happy of my daily share of food, shelter and protection! I will never want to loose all what I have! Although it is debatable as to what I have now, is something that cannot be foregone for what I can achieve!

Then I understand... like all ants I am also a prey of the Middle class syndrome! I have a secure job, a secure life, and I don't want to take risks! So is that the reason that the poorest of the poor get to be richest one day, might be because he has nothing to loose!

Or I am wrong in thinking.. but then it is a vicious circle, might be because I think like this I feel I have a lot to loose and that man on the street has nothing to loose (even a begger I have heard feels territorial, feeling if he looses the area he was begging daily, he might loose his fair share of revenue).

Might be that is why, I like the ant can never be an achiever... because like an ant I can see only 2 dimensions, and a ladder put vertically in the third dimension in front of me, I might never see it as an opportunity to grow, because I know only my two dimensions, and I really don't know what the third is!

hi da,
really a nice one,u r talking essence of life,it depends on where the ant is put and what u define as achievement...well i really consider ant is an achiever may be not of success and fame but for the part that at the end of the day he can sleep well worryless.....

dai,really nice
but some points to ponder or rather wander...........
achieving what? what is achievement ,being different from everyone ie being famous?
i think for the ant doing the daily chores and sleeping worry less itself is achievement,,,,,so it depends on your aim and target again on your wandering thoughts
