When you think about the Lion, king of the Jungle, there are so many things that come to one’s mind. It is its strength, its fieriness, and boldness, it’s regal and majestic bearing that makes it the king of the jungle.
But, have you ever imagined that their life is also full of obstacles and problems?
A lion always struggles to hunt and rule the land but never quits. There one mistake may make them lose their life, reign, or offspring. Also, hunting is not an easy task; their success rate is only 17-19 percent. Sometimes they fail in hunting a zebra, a gazelle, and a wildebeest. But do they give up? No. They try hard and succeed in hunting.
The only thing that motivates the lion to keep struggling is its survival. It is the only thing that never lets the leader give up on life.
Below are the 6 lessons of life which you can learn from the king of the jungle.
- Set a life goal
Set a life goal and work hard to achieve it; consider that there are no alternatives. Lions are born to hunt and rule which makes them struggle for their survival. In the same way, you need to set goals for yourself to survive among the fittest. Consider your purpose and work as a source of motivation. They will keep you going through good and bad times
- Focus is the key to success
When lions go on a hunt, they make less noise and focus on the prey. The raid becomes successful only when it gets to the prey without giving any signs of attack. Similarly, when it comes to your struggles for achieving goals, speak less instead of telling everyone what you want to achieve, keep it low and focus on the goal.
- Embrace your failures
Being the king of the jungle does not mean a lion never fails. In hunting for its prey, it fails eight out of ten times. But that does not make the lion become depressed and lose hope. Instead, it changes its approach towards making a better hunt every time. Likewise, we should also embrace our failures and evolve each time we face them. As Jack Ma has rightly said,
“If the guy only checks himself, yeah, something wrong with me here, something wrong with me there. Then, this guy has hope.”
- Support each other
A pride of lions always back each other in good and bad times. This makes its entire pack strong enough to take down a prey. When it comes to struggling with your goals, you need to support each other by not breaking their trust. Instead, you need to support others in hard times with your wisdom.
- Have fun
A lion’s life is not always about hunting and facing challenges. It also finds time to relax and play with others. You should make sure to enjoy the best moments in life and take care of your friends and family. Leave your stress and worries in your workplace, and when you are at home, relish the time with your family.
Lions don’t harm anyone without any reason. But, when someone tries to mar their territory, life, and family, they leave no stone unturned in giving a tough fight. Likewise, you should always focus on improving yourself. There is no use of creating problems for others. Just keep all your focus on making your career and life better. If you find someone trying to bring you down from your place, fight back and be wise in overcoming any problems.
