How Getting Beat By A Tortoise Made Me A Better Hare

I was ashamed. Getting beat by a tortoise was humiliating. I should have easily won the race. But looking back on it now, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. It caused me to re-evaluate my “life in the fast lane” lifestyle. I decided to make some changes.

I’ve gone vegan. Alright, I already was a vegan. But I quit binge eating carrots before a big race. And I get lots of sleep now so I don’t feel the need to nap during a competition.

I learned a valuable lesson losing that race. I came to realize that failure is part of succeeding in life. So this year I am going to allow the tortoise to learn the valuable lesson of failure when I leave him in my dust.
