Cultivate a Lion Mind: Stay focused on Your Goals

Picture this:

There is a dog in front of you, and you are throwing bones for it to catch. For every bone you throw, the dog jumps with over-the-top enthusiasm, runs to catch it and brings it back to you. No matter how many times you do this, it treats every bone you throw with the same level of excitement.

Now picture this:

There is a lion sitting in front of you. You throw a bone for it to catch, and it looks completely disinterested in running behind the bone you throw.

Do you know why?

The lion is more interested in the bag of bones in front of it – YOU! The lion has poise and understands that the bone is just a small piece of a larger reality.

You see, as humans, it is natural to get distracted, but it is at this point that you have a choice.

You can either choose not to see beyond the bone, like the dog; or you can realize that the bone is just a small piece of a much larger reality, like the lion.

Don’t get caught up in the “bones” of life; and instead, remind yourself of WHY it is important to accomplish your goal. Concentrate on the benefits of keeping yourself focused on what may be the less interesting, but more important task.

Remember, everything is ultimately a choice.
