Did you ever seen the Disney movie short “Lambert?”
Lambert is a lion cub raised by sheep.
He eats grass and hops along the meadow with the other lambs until one day a wild lion shows up to attack the herd.
Lambert starts to bleat in fear along with his brothers and sisters but, instead, out comes from his body comes a deafening ROAR.
Lambert thought he was a sheep and, under pressure, he discovered he was so much more.

Don’t wait for something traumatic to summon forth your potential. Instead, cultivate your potential so you’ll be ready when life’s traumas present themselves.
