Learning from Animals
Learning from Mice—Giving Myself Confidence
Mice often scare me. I usually run away screaming when I see a mouse. I shout and stamp my feet to avoid seeing mice.
I scare mice, too. Mice run away as fast as they can when I approach them. Mice never dare to stay around me.
When we meet each other, the scene would like this: mice and I run away in opposite direction in a panic.
However, mice will never know they scare me and never understand my yelling. Suppose that one day mice figure out I am scared of them. Then, what would happen? They will run after me.
Sometimes I am a “mouse." When I meet someone who is bigger and stronger than me, I usually give up before the competition, because I don’t have enough confidence to beat them. However, learning from mice, I also know that they might think I am the threat.
But, there’s one thing. I need to make sure that the one I meet is a “mouse” not a “tiger," or I will definitely “die”!
