The two ants were very unfortunate and strayed into the glass.
They flustered around the bottom of the glass, trying to find a gap to climb out. Soon, they found out that this was impossible.
So, they began to climb up along the wall of the cup. It seems that this is the only path to freedom.
However, the surface of the glass was so smooth that they fell heavily as soon as they climbed two steps.
They rubbed their aching bodies, got up, and climbed up again. Soon, they fell heavily to the bottom of the cup again.
Three times, four times, five times … once, seeing that they were about to climb to the mouth of the cup, unfortunately, the last step failed, and this time it hurt more than any time.
It took them a long time to catch their breath. An ant rubbed his ass and said: “We can’t take any more risks. Otherwise, it will fall to pieces.” The other ant said, “Just now, are we not only one step away from victory?” Then he started climbing again.
Falling again and again, climbing again and again, he touched the edge of the cup mouth in the end, and with the last bit of strength, he turned over the transparent wall.
Across the glass, the ant in the cup asked both enviously and enviously: “Tell me, what is the secret of your success?”
The ant outside the cup replied: “It may be the most difficult when approaching success, and whoever does not lose confidence in the most difficult time may win.”
The ants in the cup were inspired and encouraged, no longer afraid of being hurt by falling, and they began to climb again. They eventually climbed out of the glass and rendezvoused with another ant.
And the important factor why the little ant cannot give up is that it has the belief that it will win. If it adheres to the belief that it will win in setbacks, it will not lose the power to persist.
