"Nchuuñisibakkaaluigwuoénañ (The fly is not scared of the cow’s nostrils)"
Among the things that drive humans in this world, the survival instinct seems to be one of the strongest. All creatures strive to survive and in the process learn to adapt to whatever conditions present themselves. Fear, in this quest to adapt, is banished and so we learn to live alongside what is available and avoid what does not support life. Our Annang forebears observed that despite the size of the fly, it is seen flying around and on the cow that can easily step on it. When the survival instinct requires action, nothing is too big that cannot be attempted. As flies are not scared of the big nostrils of the cow because of its need to survive, those driven and hungry for success and achievement must climb various mountains and overcome obstacles to achieve their goals.
