an interesting thought:
never find leopards or lions saying to themselves,
"Well, I don't think I'll put myself out on this
hunt. Why strain myself? What's the
point? I nearly always make the kill and then what
happens? Everyone tucks in and I don't even get a
thank you. This time, I'll just coast.
Someone else can do the work for a change. . . ."
tree never says, "What's the point of putting out
all that effort--growing up as tall as I can to the
light? Sooner or later, someone else is just going
to grow that little bit taller, and I'll be in the shade
anyway. So why bother?"
never see a cobra that's too lazy to strike, a mother
wolf who is only half-hearted about looking after her
cubs, or migrating birds who simply decide not to, or
just fly at half pace.
has a habit of always doing its very best. Animals
and plants never do things by halves. They always
do everything that they are capable of doing. They
always do their best.
why are we humans so different? Why do we
consistently fall behind our own standards for
ourselves, let alone anyone else's?
take a leaf out of Nature's book and strive to be the
best person we can possibly be in every area.
