I came across this parable, while reading, "Action! Nothing Happens Until Something Moves," by Robert Ringer.
Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows that it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows that it must run faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve.
It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or a gazelle; when the sun comes up, you'd better start running.
"Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it." ~Goethe
