Are you a Grateful Gazelle or a Grateful Lion?

The Grateful Gazelle and the Grateful Lion

I read this before and I have read this again – each time it is a great reminder not to sit around, do nothing, and be stagnant! If you have to sit, always be thinking!

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.

Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve…

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a lion or gazelle – when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.”

Be Well.
