Episode Notes

Little beginnings Ever heard the story of the tortoise and the hare? Here it is anyway: A Hare was making fun of the Tortoise one day for being so slow. _"Do you ever get anywhere?"_ he asked with a mocking laugh. _"Yes, I do"_ replied the Tortoise, _"and I'll run you a race to prove it."_ The Hare was quite amused at the idea of running a race with the animal with the highest reputation for a lack of speed, but, for the fun of the thing, he agreed. So the Fox, who had agreed to act as judge, marked the distance and started the runners off. The Hare was swiftly far out of sight and to make the Tortoise feel very deeply how ridiculous it was for him to try a race with a Hare, he lay down beside the course to take a nap until the Tortoise should catch up. The Tortoise meanwhile kept going slowly but steadily, and, after a time, he passed the place where the Hare was sleeping. But the Hare, unsuspectingly, slept on; and when at last he did wake up, the Tortoise was near the goal. The Hare jumped out of his sleep and ran as fast as his legs would take him, but it wasn't enough to overtake the Tortoise in time. Note that the tortoise started off very slowly and he probably wouldn't have had anything on the hare if not for the pride of his opponent. He didn't beat himself up for being slower. He just kept "running" at *his* pace. He wasn't intimidated by the speed of the hare. His beginning wasn't so great but with consistency and endurance, he won against all odds. *Be the tortoise* *Talk with Sarah* --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/talkwitsarah/message
