21: Proverbs, Myths and Legends: The Big game
Todays Proverb is an Igbo saying from Nigeria:
“The big game often appears when the hunter has given up the hunt for the day”
This saying really resonates with me as often I feel called to just quit, to give up and do something easier.
I can Imagine the hunter, tired, deflated and on the verge of going home empty-handed. When suddenly their prize appears, and they forget about tiredness, hunger, that previous feeling of defeat and now the only thing that matters is overcoming their foe and getting what they came for.
That ability to perform when you're at the end of your strength is what marks people out for greatness. So if you're listening to this. Don't give up, don't quit, your prize is waiting for you at the end of the day and when you see it YOU WILL have enough strength to bring it back home.
