Which one would you choose to be?

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle awakens.
He has only one thought on his mind:
To be able to run faster than the fastest lion. If he cannot, then he will be eaten.
Every morning in Africa a lion awakens.
He has only one thought on his mind:
To be able to run faster than the slowest gazelle.
If he cannot, he will die of hunger.

Whether you choose to be a gazelle or a lion is of no consequence. It is enough to know that with the rising of the sun, you must run. And you must run faster than you did yesterday or you will die. This is the race of life.

Either you need to know to chase and kill everyone like a lion;
Or else you need to know to escape and save yourself from him, like a gazelle…

You need to definitely know to be either of the one…
Else it's tough to survive…

Very much like a corporate culture…

Which one would you choose to be? I would choose to be the lion, because the Lion can afford to fail repeatedly. There is always another opportunity to catch the gazelle another day, the lion can learn and try new tricks and techniques for hunting the gazelle, all it needs is to find one successful technique and it won't go hungry.
The gazelle on the other hand, if it fails to elude capture will die! No second chances here I'm afraid.
