5 Life’s Lessons to be learnt from the spider
1.Patience is a bitter plant, but its fruit is a sweet Chinese proverb.
It takes about a minimum of an hour to spin its web which easily gets disrupted repeatedly and you must know that spiders are not disappointed and rebuild their web every day and wait for the catch patiently.
Spiders tell humans to work daily with responsibility and to have patience. Rome is not built in a day and rewards are astonishing. We must have faith in our work.
2.Life is fragile. We’re not guaranteed a tomorrow so give it everything you’ve got. Tim Cook
Spiders web looks delicate but scientifically it is stronger than steel. Similarly, our life is fragile and just like a spider makes its best effort to build a web and wait for the catch we must make our best efforts to lead a better life.
Let us remember that we are stronger than we think.
3. Always expect the worst, and you will never be disappointed Peter Wastholm
Any number of times, you destroy the web, never spider complains, instead patiently rebuilds its web, spider already knew its home is temporary and prepared to rebuild the damaged web.
So if you are mentally prepared for the worst you are sure to rebuild your career. Perseverance matters.
4.Creativity –“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt” Sylvia Plath.
The creativity of the spider, in the web formation, is unique and the spider never goes into self-doubt. Humans should adapt to creativity. There should be constant creativity of the soul. Never doubt your abilities.
5.Don’t wait for the perfect time to start making changes to your life. The time is now Chris Gardner
The spider never looks for a perfect site or day and it knows where the food is available and quickly starts building the web.
Don’t wait for the perfect day or perfect time. There is no such thing.
Get started today, try to reach the goals, whatever you are planning.
