Don't Be A Worker Ant


Recommended Posts


There's a really messed up term in biology.


Why is it messed up?

Well, it isn't really, it's just one way Mother Nature has figured out how to organize people.

Well, not people, but certain insects and maybe a few mammals.

Like ants, bees, wasps, etc.

From an organizational standpoint, it makes for a highly efficient group.

Everybody comes pre-programmed with their "life's purpose."

For worker ants, for example, their life's purpose is to work.

To NEVER get laid.

If you are human, and came back as a worker ant that would SUCK.

But, the higher up on the food chain you get, the more of an "every man for himself" kind of rule pops up.

Like in us humans, at least theoretically.

Of course, you'd never get that by looking around today.

It's very, very easy to make comparisons to people today and people a few generations ago.

People a few generations ago really WORKED for a living.

One example from the Great Depression was shown in the movie, "Cinderella Man."

True story about a depression era boxer, James J. Braddock, played by Russell Crowe.

His family had very little food.

So Braddock had to work hard to get money to buy food so his family wouldn't starve.

Since he was also trying to be a boxer, he boxed.

And he hurt his hand.

Back then, the only jobs you could get were as day laborers.

So when he hurt his hand, he HID it from the guy choosing the day laborers.

If you were the dude hiring the people, and you were paying each one the same, you'd hire the dudes who looked like they were in the BEST shape.

Not some guy with a messed up hand.

This was human resilience way back in the day.

Hiding injuries so you would get hired as a manual laborer.

Today our society is much different.

We've all grown up under endless promises.

Endless reasons why we should feel entitled to get something.

But guess what?

The same rule applies today as it did a thousand years ago.

Or ten thousand years ago.

It really IS every man for himself.

Or every woman for herself.

Sure, if you DO find yourself in a position where you are getting a steady stream of money in exchange for a steady stream of work, that's good.

Especially if that steady stream of work won't dry up.

But even then, what your boss wants and what you want are two different things.

What you want, according to your ancient instincts is to keep doing MORE.

To keep getting MORE.

More skills.

Better jobs.

Better and more enjoyable relationships.

What does your boss want?

Probably for you to be a good little soldier.

Show up, do your job, keep your head down, don't make any waves.

But deep inside, you KNOW that's a dangerous plan.

After all, who is better at taking care of your needs, your dreams, your ambitions, than YOU?
