💭 ONE THOUGHT
🏆 Are you a Lion or a Gazelle?
I love this quote about the Lion and the Gazelle.
Life is short.
We all have a choice each and every day. Our attitude matters. How we approach our day matters.
The lion perceives a challenge. The gazelle perceives a threat. Both can be motivators to succeed.
The gazelle is in fight-or-flight mode. It needs to be pushed and prodded to move.
The lion finds exhilaration in the chase of his next meal.
Check out this motivational message from Eric Thomas as he references the Lion and Gazelle story.
Which mindset do you embrace?
In the pursuit of success and personal growth, adopting the right mindset is crucial.
The Lion and Gazelle analogy offers valuable insights into how we can live our lives.
It reminds us that each day presents us with a choice: to approach it with a mindset of challenge or a mindset of threat.
When you adopt the mindset of a gazelle, you perceive challenges as threats.
Challenges can serve as powerful motivators.
Just as the gazelle must outrun the fastest lion to survive, we must confront our challenges head-on, pushing ourselves to exceed our own expectations.
On the other hand, the mindset of a lion involves perceiving challenges as opportunities for growth and success.
Like the lion pursuing its next meal, we can find exhilaration in the chase.
Embracing this mindset allows you to tap into your full potential, constantly striving to run faster, leap higher, and achieve your goals.
It's worth noting that our response to stress and competition mirrors that of the lion and the gazelle.
Athletes, in particular, understand the importance of mindset and how it impacts performance. They train themselves to thrive under pressure, utilizing the challenge response to elevate their game.
So, as you reflect on your life and goals, ask yourself these questions:
Do you strive for greatness or settle for mediocrity?
Are you content with the status quo?
Are you consistent in your habits, pushing yourself to exceed your limits?
Remember, the choice is yours.
Every morning, when the sun rises, embrace the Lion and Gazelle mindset, and make a conscious decision to run toward your dreams, face challenges head-on, and achieve the extraordinary!

Parents, respect, support, and cheer for kids.
Your kids and other kids.
Championship teams have championship cultures, and that goes for in the locker, on the bench, and in the stands.
We don’t all have to be best friends, but we can’t be against each other either.
