King of The Jungle

Atualizado: 8 de ago. de 2023

The Lion is known as the king of the jungle. And the truth of the matter is over millenniums it has been the most powerful warrior that can claim leadership over other animals in the African jungle.

The lion is feared by all animals in the jungle as it is a fierce predator. It swaggers as it tiptoes through knowing it can win any battle because of its superiority and confidence. Having the attitude of a winner fuels growth.


It isn’t the largest animal, so size doesn’t matter. It isn’t the heaviest animal, so weight isn’t to its advantage. However, lions command respect.


Lions inhabit a wide range of habitats, from open plains to thick brush and dry thorn forest. Except for a small population of a few hundred slightly smaller lions in the Gir Forest of northwest India; the remaining lions live in an area sizably less than Greater London. Hence, most lions now only live in Africa, from the Sahara's southern fringe to northern South Africa.


Kings have always looked up to lions for their strength and leadership stance from many nations to empires around the world since the early days, as seen on artifacts and crests. They deploy lions to show they are like a lion, a controlling ruler!

There is one animal, the Komodo Dragon from Asia that could stop lions by sting with its deadly poison. However, it isn’t in the right place to make an impact. With this in mind humans have the ability to command the same respect by tapping into their leadership qualities, as they can pull them out of the bag and develop a winning combo!


They have to rise up to the occasion by using instinctive action which comes from learning how to do things repetitively. Aim to improve consistently. Once you have a winning formula, stick to it. If it goes offtrack, then go back to basics. You’ll be surprised how you can step up your game and take it to the next level.


Top notch ideas come from persistence. A team could have the winning edge whilst drawing some and only losing very few games. Trying to create and invent new techniques could pay off for a while. Players might try to impress making headway. They get cocky while sticking to newly formed habits. However, results may change and then results somersault back.

It’s part of the learning curve. Often getting back to basics, a team will sort out its situation and get back on track. The key, if any, is to consistently try to improve while maintaining tight control of methods that worked in the past. Statistics can be very beneficial. Needless to say, a good leader is worth his weight in gold.


Have a great day!
