In the fight for survival the Bison runs for its life & the Lion runs for its dinner. What does it take to bring you alive?
Either way both creatures are trying to survive, which ever way you look at it. The Bison is fighting for its life in the moment and the Lion knows if it does not kill another animal to eat, it will not live for much longer either.
We also are like the Lion and The Bison, we are moved by what matters most to us, we act depending on the needs of the moment. Sometimes a little reward like food or words of encouragement will move us to do something. At other times, we have no choice, but to act or we end up in a far worse situation.
