3. The lion believes it can
Most readers reading this have seen a lion in action and one thing a lion has is believe I what it does. When a lion is about to attack a buffalo or any other animal it does not necessarily look at the size because the lion has belief in what it is doing. If you do not believe in yourself and your dreams then who else will belief in them the way you should. The person that should elevate you is yourself. Dr John C Maxwell once said, “Success is just an attitude, if you believe you can; you can, if you cannot; you cannot.” So success awaits you to start believing in yourself. Do not let your doors of opportunity close because you do not believe in yourself. Develop the, “I CAN DO IT ATTITUDE”. Attitude will always determine your altitude. So do you have the right attitude to let the lion in you roar?
4. Lion is Able to Say No to what it Not Want does
With or without meat the lion never eats grass, have defined standards for your life. Many of us are living lives we do not want to live. We have accepted jobs we do not want, we say yes to things that should not be within our reach. The lion is bold enough to say no to what it does not qualify to. You might at a current stage in your life but make sure that stage should not be permanent. You might be at a job today but your destination is to employ. You might have lost all assets of you previous business but that’s not your permanent state. Those assets may be restored and you can acquire much better than the ones you lost. The great never started at the top, they started somewhere, Where you are today is your ground zero but were you will be tomorrow is now in your control.
The current circumstances you are in or you are born in are not in your control but what happens in your future you have full control over it. – Tendai Mungate
5. Lead Your Own Life.
A lion is born to lead and within each and every one of us lays the ability to lead. Many of us just need to get out of our comfort zones and accept the responsibility of leading our own lives. Stop complaining about what others have done and blaming others for your own life’s outcomes. You’re on your way to your greatness. Leadership does not start by leading a group of people but it starts by leading yourself first. A lion masters its own habits, routines and life style. True leaders start by leading themselves first. They define their leadership so that their followers can learn the right way.
Embracing these traits not only activate your greatness but keep you on track. Success is about what you do today. Embrace the traits and let the lion in you roar.
