Monday Motivator: Don’t Wait for the Rabbit

There is an Asian tale about a farmer who took a break from a long day in the fields. As he sat down, he saw a rabbit run into a stump and break its neck. Taking the rabbit home, he cooked and ate it.

“Ah,” he said. “This is how life should be.”

From that day on, he sat by the edge of the woods waiting for another rabbit to run into a stump. Obviously, things did not turn out so well for him.

There are several lessons that can be learned from this story:

  • There really is no substitute for hard and steady work.
  • Do not mistake a random incident for fate.
  • And if you’re a rabbit, look where you’re running.

But in any case, keep working on your goals.
