Giraffes give birth standing up. The first introduction to the world for a baby giraffe is a fall of about 10 feet, to the dirt. It normally curls up and tries to remain Stretching itself on the ground. Then the mother does a strange thing. She kicks it, sending it sprawling. If it doesn’t get up, she repeats the process. When the baby gets tired from its efforts to stand, the mother kicks it again, to spur it on. When the baby finally does stand, the mother knocks it down. She wants the baby to remember how it did it.
She keeps repeating it till the baby giraffe starts standing on its own. It sounds Strange ! But Why does the baby giraffe gets kicked by its
Mother？This is necessary, for the baby must learn how to stand, so as to stay with the herd. As harsh as this may seem to us, if the mother did not do this, the baby would be totally on its own, unprotected and vulnerable to the predators in their world. Many times the setbacks you face in life are all meant to make you much stronger so that you keep adding more glories as you proceed further.
It is easy to get discouraged, when things are going bad. But, we shouldn’t lose heart, even in the midst of pain and suffering. Remember, next time if you are up with an obstacle, it just may be the one to make you much mightier and stronger so that you reach your goals more easily.
If we face our problems and respond to them positively, and refuse to give in to panic, bitterness, or self-pity the adversities that come along to bury us usually have within them the potential to benefit and bless us!.
Folks! You can never give up !
Don’t let failure get you down. It’s part of success. Learn from your failures. Make Failure your teacher and not your undertaker! Just remember people are not finished when they are defeated… They are only finished when they quit!
