Quote: Incy Wincy Spider

spider2 (1)










As children, we learned this little rhyme:


Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the water spout

Down came the rain and washed the spider out

Out came the sun and dried up all the rain

Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the spout again.


Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the tree

Down came the snow and made poor Incy freeze

Out came the sun and melted all the snow

So Incy Wincy Spider had another go!


It’s meant to teach us the value of persistence, but so often when we reach adulthood we forget that to achieve anything, we mustn’t quit as soon as we come across the first setback. We need to plan carefully, know where we’re going, and wait for the right time to take action.

And when we’re really up the spout, we need the determination to keep trying other ideas until we’re successful.

So… when you decide your new success idea has legs – make sure eight of them belong to Incy Wincy. (tweet this)
