The Tortoise and the Hare – a classic story that we all know and love.
For those of you who are not familiar with this story, here is the gist of it:
The Hare bragged about how fast he could run – and even made fun of the Tortoise for being slow. So one day the Tortoise challenged the Hare to a race – and you guessed it – the Hare laughed thinking he could outrace the Tortoise any day.
All the animals of the forest mapped out a race for the Tortoise and the Hare. When the race began the Hare took off leaving the Tortoise behind. About halfway through the race the Hare realized how far ahead he was compared to the Tortoise and that he had plenty of time to finish the race.
With this realization the Hare decided to play in the meadow and then take a nap. While the Hare was playing and napping – the Tortoise kept trucking along, never stopping. When the Hare awoke from his nap, he raced to the finish line as quick as he could.
Only to find the Tortoise already there waiting for him.
This leads me to ask…are you the Tortoise or the Hare?
I’m here to tell you that being the Tortoise is ok – and truly awesome! This shows that you have dedication to what you are doing – that you’re invested – and will continue to truck along. There is no need to rush through life.
With that being said – HAPPY MONDAY LOVES!
This week let’s focus on being the Tortoise in a world full of Hares. It is often so incredibly easy to rush through life and hit the snooze button on opportunities. Where instead we should take in what life has to offer.
Know your worth – set your goals – and get to work. Be diligent, but take your time. Try your best to be aware of your surroundings and everything life is throwing at you. Jump on new opportunities and steadily work to gain even more opportunity.
The world offers endless amounts of wealth through knowledge. Let’s work to learn something new every step of the race – putting us ahead of all the Hares.
After all – Slow and Steady does win the race!
