Here is a great Metaphor for life we heard while listening a Fearless Motivation Track on spotify!
Give them a listen on if you want to kick start your day for success!
The mother giraffe gives birth standing up, so the first thing that happens to a new-born baby giraffe is a huge fall of about two metres.
What a way to enter the world – no loving cuddle, no smiles, just a giant drop… It get’s worse…
When the poor little baby giraffe shakes off the initial shock, and tries to stand up on its four legs, you would think the mother would try and help her little baby…
No – not this time.
The mother then proceeds to kick the legs out from this little baby, sending it sprawling back to the ground.
Baby tries again, and again the mother kicks the baby’s legs out, knocking it to the ground again.
This process is repeated over and over until the new-born giraffe is so exhausted it can’t even stand.
At that point, the mother will kick it again, forcing it to get to its feet.
Now you’re probably thinking this mother is awful or an exception, no this happens with all newborn baby giraffes… and WHY?:
BECAUSE THE MOTHER IS PREPARING THE CHILD TO SURVIVE PREDATORS IN THE WILD.
THIS BABY’S FIRST LESSON WITHIN SECONDS OF ENTERING THIS WORLD IS:
GET BACK ON YOUR FEET!
Now i’m telling you that in order to reach any level of success in your life, sometimes your going to have to GET TO YOUR FEET after suffering setbacks
And ALL THE TIME you are going to have to BE PREPARED.
Now i wish i could get a mother giraffe out here to kick some of you into gear and teach you a lesson or two in preparation and survival
But i can’t … But what i can do is get someone with more power.
I can leave it up to you.
PREPARE YOURSELF for success.
PREPARE TO WIN.
If you get knocked down, don’t just get up.
GET UP STRONGER THAN BEFORE.
GET UP MORE DETERMINED THAN BEFORE.
Have the DESIRE and HEART to follow EVERYTHING through in your life!
Leave NO stone unturned and complete NOTHING half hearted.
You don’t have half a heart!
GIVE IT ALL YOUR HEART
100% of your strength, courage and application.
Anyone says you can’t do it: PROVE THEM WRONG
