Surpass yourself and better be running...

Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.
African Proverb
The version that I received from my friend Brian ends with ... It doesn't matter if you are a Gazelle or a Lion... when the sun gets up, you know that to suceed, you must be able to surpass yourself ... I am fascinated by the word surpass. So challenging! So big! So meaningful!
