The Lion Vs. The Tiger
It’s a fact that Tigers are a much bigger, stronger, and faster animal than Lions. Although they may not look much bigger, Tigers at their heaviest are 800 pounds of dense muscle compared to the max 550 pounds of a big Lion.
The Tiger is a brutal and fast fighter that is used to hunting large game one on one. On the other hand, Lion’s typically hunt in packs and require help to take down large animals.
Again, advantage Tiger.
Lions rely on their teeth and mouth as primary weapons. Then, when an opportunity presents itself, they will attack with their claws. In contrast, Tigers have incredibly powerful hind legs. They use this power for leap attacks which allow them to cover a greater distance and swipe with a bigger, heavier paw before the Lion can even reach.
Once again, advantage Tiger.
The Results: A Fighting Chance
It’s no secret, the Tiger wins a majority of the time. But, notice I didn’t say all of the time. Even when forced to fight during Ancient Roman times Lions were known to win on occasion, although the Tiger was always the heavy favorite.
Experts believe that based on the size and aggressiveness of each animal, a Tiger is likely to win 7 out of 10 matches with a Lion.
Keeping in mind the fact that the Lion is so heavily outmatched and still, at times, wins is unbelievable. Experts have been able to attest this probability to only one thing.
In life it can seem like the odds are stacked against you. In the same way, when a Lion walks into a cage with a Tiger the chances of it walking out aren’t great. But I want you to remember this, it is better to have tried and failed than to never have tried at all.
At the sight of the Tiger, the Lion could lay down and accept its fate. Instead, the Lion chooses to fight and it’s the Lion’s heart, belief in its own abilities, and strong willpower that gives the Lion a chance to be victorious!
No matter your race, color, or creed. No matter what background you come from. No matter the size or difficulty of your dream. It is possible to make it a reality despite the opposition.
Failing to try is still failing! So why not put forth your best effort regardless of the circumstances?
Be like the Lion, follow and fight with all of your heart. You’ve got greatness within you!
“At the end of the day, my momma told me don’t let no one break me, nobody ever could stop me, you can’t regret it if you were trying, and I’m walking with the heart of a lion.” -Kid Cudi
