We want to remind you that you were meant to do something great. By making physical and mental changes in the program, it should be proof that you can do anything you put your mind to, with some hard work and effort. Today’s message is a reminder DO NOT get comfortable.
Somewhere in the world, a lion wakes up every morning not knowing what it’s going to eat. Every day, it must find food. The lion isn’t worried—it just does what it needs to do.
Somewhere else, in a zoo, a caged lion sits around every day and waits for a zookeeper. The lion is comfortable. It gets to relax. It’s not worried much, either. Both of these animals are lions, but only one is a king.
Don’t settle for a life of comfort.
We were meant to take risks, be bold, hunt big game and achieve great things. If a lion was to sit around in the jungle all day, waiting for a meal to come to him, he would starve to death.
He could believe that he was entitled to a zebra to snack on, he could think that it was unfair that he had to hunt or he could complain that it was too hot to run around.
But if he doesn’t hunt, he doesn’t eat.
Alternatively, if a lion gets up, searches for his prey, uses an effective hunting strategy and expends energy to catch his meal, he has a full stomach.
He understands that he eats what he kills.
We’re much the same.
A successful career is not something that you’re entitled to and it will take hard work to establish. The body you want is going to take more hard work and proper eating.
But if you take the initiative, look for opportunities, work to a strategy and expend the energy required, you give yourself a chance to have a flourishing career.
You may think that it’s all too hard, not entirely fair and not guaranteed to work.
But just like the lion, we eat what we kill.
Which lion are you?
