Preparing for the Future

  This Golden Nugget is titled “Preparing for the Future”. I’d like to remind you of a familiar story. It’s one of Aesop’s fables. It’s the story of “The Ant and the Grasshopper”. Once upon a time, it was a beautiful summer day, and the grasshopper was enjoying the sunny day. The grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to his heart’s content, when he noticed an ant passing by, struggling to carry a kernel of corn to its nest. The grasshopper said to the ant, “Hey! You look like you’re working way too hard! How about sitting down with me, taking it easy for awhile?” The ant replied, “I can’t stop now. I’ve gotta help store food for the winter, and I’d recommend that you to do the same.” The grasshopper replied, “Haha! Why worry about the winter? We have plenty of food!” But the ant continued to work while the grasshopper continued to take it easy and sing and play, and eventually, it became cold, and summer turned to fall and fall turned to winter, and the grasshopper found himself dying of hunger, while the ants had a storehouse full of food. And the moral of the story is prepare today for the needs that you will have tomorrow. This same concept is found in Proverbs 10 verse 5. It says, “A wise youth makes hay while the sun shines, but what a shame it is to see a lad who sleeps away the hour of opportunity.Yes, you’ve gotta plan ahead! You’ve got to prepare for the future! I’ve built a team at Howe Insurance Services, and I like to tell people, “You can’t do what I do, until you do what I did.” In other words, you can’t live my lifestyle until you pay the price that I paid. With this in mind, do you plan and prepare for the future? Tomorrow, I plan to share with you a story, a personal story about Don Howe and his ant farm, but in the meantime, let me remind you that you ARE a winner, and given enough time, you WILL win! Yes, you ARE a winner!

It’s the story of “The Ant and the Grasshopper”. You see, once upon a time, it was a beautiful summer day, and the grasshopper was enjoying the sunny day. The grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to his heart’s content, when he noticed an ant passing by, struggling to carry a kernel of corn to its nest. The grasshopper said to the ant, “Hey! You look like you’re working way too hard! How about sitting down with me, taking it easy for awhile?” The ant replied, “I can’t stop now. I’ve gotta help store food for the winter, and I’d recommend that you to do the same.” The grasshopper replied, “Haha! Why worry about the winter? We have plenty of food!” But the ant continued to work while the grasshopper continued to take it easy and sing and play, and eventually, it became cold, and summer turned to fall and fall turned to winter, and the grasshopper found himself dying of hunger, while the ants had a storehouse full of food. And the moral of the story is prepare today for the needs that you will have tomorrow. This same concept is found in Proverbs 10 verse 5.
