If you can become a lion in a world that is dominated by sheep, you will WIN. No doubt about it. Lion’s have dominant characteristics that make them fit for success. Whereas sheep bow down, lion’s rise above and conquer all there is to conquer.
Therefore, below are the three characteristics that make a lion, a lion in this day and age.
Your job is to IMPLEMENT, IMPLEMENT, IMPLEMENT.
1. Have no filter
Speak your mind. Be as blunt as possible. Don’t sugar coat anything. Sugar coating is only for mediocre minds that go out of their way to avoid conflict.
Sheep avoid conflict.
Sheep avoid stepping on toes and that is why they never reach where they desire to go.
On this road you’re going to have to make a few enemies, it’s going to happen regardless of whether you want it to or not.
Therefore, don’t be afraid.
Say what you feel.
This goes both ways.
It doesn’t just mean that you should be a complete dick. It means you should speak to existence all the love, passion, and excitement you feel as well.
Stop judging your thoughts and start SHARING.
Experience yourself fully and do away with the filter that society has pressed upon you.
2. When you set your mind to something, ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK
When lions spot their prey, they attack.
They don’t think about it.
They don’t stress about it.
They don’t weigh the pros and cons.
They just attack.
Aggression is the name of the game; you have to move with aggression.
You have to make bold moves.
So many people pussyfoot around what needs to be done. They just keep playing it safe. They don’t put themselves out there and that is why they don’t succeed.
We humans spend a lot of time in our head instead of actually doing what it is we need to be doing.
Therefore stop thinking about it and just start doing.
3. Be willing to be different
If you want to be a lion in a world that is consumed with sheep, you have to be willing to stick out like a sore thumb.
You have to be willing to be scrutinized, hated, and shunned by the sheep.
Sheep are not fit to understand the intentions of a lion so when you tell the world what you want to achieve, they will laugh, they will ridicule, and they will mock.
However, you have to continue to press on.
You can’t let the sheep kill the lion within you.
It’s going to be a lonely road that you must be willing to travel alone.
Continue down your own path and never stop.
Keep pushing it to the limit.
No matter how badly you feel like giving up and joining the sheep, press on because one day you will live the life of a true lion, a life that the sheep cannot even fathom let alone reach.
It’s not going to be easy, but it’s going to be worth it.
Your reward for being a lion is success, massive success.
So continue to achieve, continue to do, continue to create and most importantly, continue to be…a lion.
