Or there is nothing better than being a good team!
Once upon a time, a small shrimp, barely able to see anything, roamed the ocean floor and was in great danger because many other creatures were just looking for delicious food.
Suddenly, a small fish crosses its path and asks: “Hello, little shrimp, what are you doing here alone on the sandy ground? Don’t you see all the others who treat you as a tasty snack for dinner? “Seeing – that’s my big problem,” the shrimp replied, “My eyes are really bad and I have no place to hide, luckily I’m still alive.”
“My eyes are perfect, they are on top of my head and let me see almost everything around me. But I am also very small and have no place to hide either. “Said the goby fish.”What are you good at?”
“I love to dig tunnels in the sand with my claws. I can push the sand like a tiny toy bulldozer.”
“That’s fantastic – here is the deal: You dig out the tunnel and I’m the security post outside. As dangers approach, we both hide in the tunnel. When I’m out, make sure our tunnel is free so I can go back and hide as fast as I can.”
“Great idea little goby fish” said the shrimp. “I will work as hard as I can, but I need some food from time to time.”
“No worries – what’s your favorite dish?” “I love algae.” “Nothing easier than that – I’ll find enough algae for you so you do not get hungry.”
From this day began the perfect team relationship and this of course had many other benefits, they even took care of each other’s offspring together.
This is what Mother Nature teaches us every day: Share your strengths to overcome your weaknesses and become strong together!
