Imagine you have a big juicy bag of bones. A dog sits at your feet staring at the bag. You throw a bone and the dog eagerly fetches it, brings it back and chews on it. You throw another, same thing. You could do this all day long and the dog would continue to fetch the bones.
Imagine you have a big juicy bag of bones. A glorious and majestic lion is watching you. You throw a bone. The lion does not move and does not take his eyes off you. You throw another bone and the lion stays still looking at you.
The lion realises that it’s not about the many small bones that are thrown his way. He has his eye on a bigger juicier prize, in this case, you. You are worth spending time investing in. A lion is discerning, only flexing his muscles when necessary.
Be more lion!
