The Vegetarian Lion

As a lion this week in your training to sharpen your claws and get hunting down your goals. If you don’t do this, you are wasting the talents and time you were given. Today’s questions should challenge you to think about who you are and where you are going. One goal is to get you fit. Another is to get you following your Lion’s Purpose.


If a lion is vegetarian, is he still a lion?

If he doesn’t use the long claws, razor sharp teeth, athletic ability and hunting skills that he’s been equipped with to catch and eat prey, is he really being all that he can be?

If he starts consuming grass instead of zebras, is he doing what he was born to do?


Yes, he is still a lion, but only a shadow of what he could really become.

What about you?

You’ve been equipped with certain unique talents and capabilities. These skills, when used effectively, enable you to live with purpose and make a difference in the world. These attributes are a part of what defines who you are.

So let me ask you, if you’re not using your skills and operating in your areas of strength are you being true to yourself? Can you live your purpose if you’re trying to be something that you’re not?

I’ve never seen a well-fed vegetarian lion and I’ve never seen a successfully person who is not using their unique talents to their full potential.
