The Fastest Lion

"Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle – when the sun comes up, you had better be running."

Author, unknown

Some days I wake up and realize I am not the fasted lion or the fastest gazelle. It's nice to know I can still succeed by just being faster than some of the others. Most people realize they are not the fastest, the smartest, the richest or the most creative, but they are still able to be successful. All it takes is the desire to get up every day and get running.
