If A Lion Needs 3cs, You Need It Too!!! by olulu(m): 2:36am On Jun 01
Let’s revisit the Lion and talk about the 3Cs and the 3Rs.

Are you ready? Okay, let's get it on.

In a Pride of Lions, the male cub is more like a glorified tenant. There is no house, company or assets to inherit. The assets are the Lionesses and the location the pride lives and hunts in.

He is like matter that occupies space, and his position at the "BOD" meeting does not count. As an employee, he is there to follow the rules; his initiative is usually unappreciated. Sometimes that initiative gets him a query (slaps and bites) from the Lion King - his father, the MD.

The Lion King came into power, riding on blood and death. His reign can only end with his death. There is no stepping aside, and it is not a democracy. Also, weakness is not something that can or must be shown outwardly, except and perhaps with his queen(s).

The glorified tenant, the young Lion(s), only has a year or a two maximum to enjoy the luxury of belonging to a pride. Once he begins to show signs of sexual maturity, he is kicked out by his father.

The right to mate is earned via blood and death. It is never given; it is taken. The right to mate is just like power and clout that makes one a market/industry leader. You earn it; you don't inherit.

If the glorified tenant refuses to go, then he ends up dead. There can't be two kings ruling one kingdom. And based on assassination history, the son is no match for his father. If bets are placed, the odds are against the son, 100 to 0, because 10 out of 10 fights, he dies.

When the young Lion is kicked out of a pride, he is like a sacked employee or a startup business. If the young Lion is wise, he would have been participating in the hunt while he was in the pride. Such a lion would be like an employee with a side hustle because he would have hunting skills aka business experience.

Like every new business, the young lion faces two key challenges. These are:
1. Obscurity: People don't know you exist.
2. Seeming irrelevance: People know you exist, but you are an afterthought, you are not considered top 10 or even top 50.

How do you overcome obscurity and stay relevant? Overcoming these challenges will give the 3Rs. But first, you need the utilise the 3Cs to get the 3Rs.
