We all want to be the head. We want to be the main source of decision making and authority in different aspects of life (education, business, family, etc)
Look at the above topic.
Ask yourself. Do you prefer to be the head of a cockroach? Or do you prefer to be the leg of a lion.
Today, I will show you why it’s best to go for the leg of a lion, than the head of a cockroach.
I need you to please read this very carefully.
First of all, who is the cockroach compared to the lion?💐
The cockroach is portrayed as disgusting, while the lion is portrayed as Authoritative.
Sometimes when you go to your school or place of work, you notice that a person might say something and you will disgusted and be like “did this just come out from an human?”
When a person is the head of a cockroach, disgusting, annoying and irrelevant decisions and way of thinking will be inevitable. Most of the things they say will be annoying and disgusting—-just like the cockroach
But on the other hand…
The Lion, who is authoritative, commands respect wherever they are.
And you being the legs of the lion, means you that you are a part of the body of authority. The legs of a lion is the main force behind pursuing it’s goal.
Why should you be the head of mediocre? When you can be the legs that pushes Power and authority?
On a fateful day, I saw a boy (14-15years old). This boy is gifted. His way of reasoning is higher than his age mates. I was very pleased with him.
But as our relationship got stronger, I noticed that even though he has high skills, he still wanted to be the head of something much smaller.
He didn’t set any goals. In fact, he didn’t have goals to set.
I called him multiple times to discuss career talks with him, but each time he always told me that he’s not concerned about all that. All what he’s concerned about is enjoying life, and the motive of “Small work, huge pay”
For a boy whose IQ is higher than normal, I felt disturbed by his mindset.
He was trying to be the head of something mediocre, when he could be legs of something authoritative.
I sat him down and it took me 7 months of intense mentoring and checkups before he believed in a bigger and better picture.
In a few years, he will get into the university studying the course of Veterinary medicine. (He likes treating and taking care of animals)
Not everyone is as fortunate as the boy above.
Some people have been the head of a cockroach, made mediocre decisions, and then died while still being the head of a cockroach.
Some people are presently thinking they are going to have a great future and success, but they don’t know that they are carrying the head and mindset of a cockroach, which might pose as a restriction.
Cockroaches bring uncertainty.
Cockroaches can be stagnant. (A cockroach can be in a position for hours, without moving)
Do you want to be stagnant? Do you want to be in the same position for years to come? Do you want to remain in a spot, while everyone has moved on and covered a lot of distance?
Then you should stop being the head of a cockroach. Stop thinking like a cockroach.
Characteristics of people with the head of a cockroach.💐
People with the head of a cockroach might experience similar traits like:
2. Bringer of fear (when people look at them, just like the cockroach, they feel frightened)
3. State of dullness
4. Anger and hate (no one likes the cockroach, so no one likes people that have the head and mindset of the cockroach)
5. Trampled upon (How easy it is for a cockroach to be killed? Very easy.)
People with the mindset of a cockroach will always be overshadowed by the opinions of other people. Their opinions will be killed because it makes no sense to the people around them)
6. They are fast to run away from the light. They love dark places. They love darkness.
Have you walked into your kitchen with a flashlight at night, and you see cockroaches running away wildly? Yes, it’s because they hate the light.
People with the head and thinking of a cockroach will always be found fooling with their own thoughts in private and will always avoid enlightening themselves and knowing more about things.
How to avoid being the head of a cockroach💐
Now, with all that you’ve read so far, I’m certain that really want to avoid being the head of a cockroach.
To avoid being the head of a cockroach, you must observe these points very carefully:
1. You must not mingle with cockroaches.
“Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are” Or rather, show me your friends and I will tell whether you have the risk of thinking like a cockroach, or as a lion.
The first step to avoiding thinking like cockroaches is not to be found in the company of cockroaches.
I’m sorry to say but, if you are found in the company of mediocre thinkers, then it won’t be surprising if you end up a mediocre thinker.
Detach yourself from the cockroaches around you. Cut off yourself from low-level thinking.
Instead, surround yourself with people who have power in their words and thoughts. Surround yourself with people who are lions. People who are Jaguars. People who have great and standardized level of thinking.
2. Be an insecticide to cockroaches around you.
Kill all elements of cockroach thinking around you.
Some people around you might carry the head of a cockroach. They might want to influence you with their negative and disgusting attributes. But you can be a repelling force to them. You can keep them away by being an insecticide to them.
And you can be an insecticide by being clean. Cockroaches don’t stay in clean places. By being clean, I mean having a positive, clean and clear mindset. When your mindset is positive and strong, cockroaches around you will stay away from you. You will act as an insecticide to them. And they won’t ever dare come near to you, because they see that your thinking is higher, cleaner and stronger than theirs.
Now, it’s your choice. You will decide. I can only enlighten, but I can’t help you to take decisions.
Decide if you would still prefer to be the disgusting head of a cockroach, or you will prefer to be the strong legs of a lion.
I hope you make the right decision. I hope so.
Thanks so much for reading this article. I really appreciate your time.
Your smile is my inspiration ❤️
