Always Be Prepared For Everything.
An inspirational story is nothing if it doesn’t cause you to do something, or at least help you believe in yourself a little bit more.
Life Lesson from Giraffe: Be Prepared.
The mother giraffe gives birth standing up, so the first thing that happens to a new-born baby giraffe falls 10 feet from its mother’s womb and usually lands on its back.
It lowers her head long enough to take a quick look, her baby tries to stand up on its four legs, but its mother behaves very unusual and rudely introduces its offspring to the reality of life.
She gives the baby giraffe a gentle kick which sends it sprawling. It tries to get up and again it knocked down.
This process is repeated over and over and over again until the new-born giraffe is too exhausted to stand up. At that point, the mother kicks it again, knocking it’s to the ground and forcing it to get to its feet. After that, she does not push the baby giraffe over again.
Now you probably think this mother is Awful. No, it happens with all newborn baby giraffe.
Do You Want to Know Why?
The answer is simple: The Mother is preparing her child to survive predators. Baby’s first life lesson within seconds of entering into this world is “GET BACK ON YOUR FEET QUICKLY AND BE PREPARED”.
I am telling you “In order to reach any level of success in life, sometimes you will be beaten over the head, faced rejection over and over again, knocked down for years and get nowhere. But every time when you knocked down be prepared to get back up. That is a critical life skill and it’s the habit of all super successful people.
And just remember one more thing. Next time if your friend or lovable ones kicking you, don’t get upset with them. Like the mother giraffe, they may only be trying to teach you one of the most important life lessons.
It doesn’t matter how many times you fall. What matters is your ability to pick yourself up and stand on your feet once again and prove who you are.
BABY giraffes never go to school. But they learn a very important lesson rather early in life. A lesson that all of us would do well to remember.
“Sometimes, in order to teach something great, you have to be a little rough.”
