The smaller the lizard, the greater the hope of becoming a crocodile. – Ethiopian Proverb
The less we know or have, the higher chance there is by working towards our results. The “lizard ” is a tiny reptile in comparison to a crocodile, but it has high hopes of becoming a crocodile. This Ethiopian proverb conveys the power of confidence and dreams. The lizard is small but it doesn’t have doubt in its ability, and it is confident in going towards what it wants ( becoming a crocodile). With this mentality, the small lizard can complete better tasks than a giant crocodile, because it believe it can.
Sometimes we let external factors get in the way of achieving our goals. This could be our social class, race, and backgrounds. Having inner strength and confidence to accomplish your goals is much more powerful than external factors. Our thoughts become actions, and for extraordinary results, we need have to have exceptional thinking, like this small lizard.
