Sometimes I wake up and I don’t always feel as motivated as I typically do. One day last week I was not feeling very inspired. So I grabbed one of my books that always help inspire me and I read the story noted below:
A Zen master out for a walk with one of his students pointed out a fox chasing a rabbit. “According to an ancient fable, the rabbit will get away from the fox,” the master said.
“Not so.” replied the student. “The fox is faster.”
“But the rabbit will elude him,” insisted the master.
“Why are you so certain?” asked the student.
“Because the fox is running for his dinner and the rabbit is running for his life.” answered the master.
After I read the story I asked myself am I as motivated as the rabbit or am I just keen like the fox and I knew that with the responsibilities I have as a Dad and my desire to give the best of what I can give to our world I am extremely motivated like a rabbit running for his life with the goal of living every moment to the fullest.
Are you like the rabbit or the fox? Are you hungry for dinner or hungry to live the life of your dreams?
