A Quick Nap Might Be Dangerous

There was a hare who was boasting about how he could outrun anybody. He teased the tortoise for being too slow, saying "you are so slow, I can win you by just rolling on the floor to the finish line." The irate tortoise accepted a challenge.

The next day at dawn, they stood at the starting point. The hare yawned as the meek tortoise trudged slowly off. When the hare saw how painfully slow the tortoise was, he decided to have a quick NAP.
After a while, with a careless glance at the tortoise, now halfway along the course, he decided to have another snooze.

By the time the hare woke up, he could see the tortoise, a speck in the distance. Quickly the hare dashed. He leaped and bounded at a great rate, gasping for breath, but he was too late; the tortoise had beaten him to the winning post.

The hare failed because he depends on his own ability and relaxed when he suppose to get up to the task ahead.

The hare looked down on what his contemporary could do based on his weakness.
His competitor make use of the period that the hare relax and start his journey and at the end of the day the hare couldn’t meet up despite the fact that he has all that it takes to win but a quick nap took the victory away from him and give it to the person that is consistent despite his weakness.

You might be heading to the same destination but don't be carried away by the weakness of those who you are competing with to the extent of you making a decision of taking a quick nap. Your competitors will definitely make use of such opportunity to put in all their best to overtake you.


You don’t have to allow your previous success to deceive you not to attack every opportunity with full force.

You have the ability and you have the opportunity to succeed in all of your endeavors, don’t relax when you ought not to relax.

Always stay active in the pursuit of your goals and dreams, a quick nap might be dangerous.

This one is a classic that never gets old. Don't rest while you're comfortable, rest when you're done.
