IF YOU ESCAPED FROM THE LION'S DEN, WHY GO BACK FOR YOUR HAT?


By Vernalee

The African Proverb - If you escaped from the lion's den, why go back for your hat

has a thought provoking meaning. Think about it!. “In the pursuit of our dreams, we must make conscious efforts not to allow petty things to distract or derail us from the path of success. We must understand that some things are simply irreplaceable. A hat can be replaced but life cannot. Don't confuse a brave act with a brainless act. If you have managed to overcome a big challenge, why chase after little things that will lead you back to that dangerous path? Life does not always give us second chances. That's why we must optimize the chances that we get” as we exercise good judgment; minimize risks; maximize opportunities! A hint to the wise is very simple - Don’t go back if you successfully got out!
