These 30 Animal Parents with their New-born Babies in the Wild Will Show You How Precious Life Is

These 30 Animal Parents with their New-born Babies in the Wild Will Show You How Precious Life Is

As Charles Darwin described in his study about the existence and nature of emotions as expressed both by humans and animals, emotions are a natural part of the living creatures. Although there might be some slight differences between emotions of animals and humans, yet, they are quite similar. Both of these creatures have distinguished emotional patterns like anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness, and even surprise. With that, it is not far from reality that animals when they become parents, also become loving towards their babies. They express similar emotions and at the same time do similar things as the humans do to give whatever their babies need. This is also one way to show that they care for their young.

Here are some of the most touching photos of newborn animals in the wild which clearly express that animals, too, can show how tender and caring they are as mothers and fathers to their babies. Let these photos inspire you and show you how precious life is.

1. Mother monkey gets Caesarian

Painful as it sounds, but yes, the mother monkey just got her Caesarian to give birth to her baby monkey. This is quite a maternal sacrifice!

    2. The Canada goslings follow their mama goose

    Really cute! These goslings are following their mother goose in search for food. While doing so, they swim together in line (to avoid being lost).

      3. The Capybara swims with her newborn

      One of the cutest feature of a Capybara is that they really are persistent in terms of teaching some values to their young. You can see this in this picture of these baby Capybaras learning to swim together with their mom.

          5. Baby Calf follows Mama Hippo

          Obedience is one of the keys to life’s success. In order for this baby hippo to learn the basics of life, he needs to obey what his mom asks him to do. As seen in this photo, this baby follows wherever his mom will go.

              Just like the human moms, this lioness carefully brings her cub to the distinct places in the jungle. It’s somehow scary to look at, but that’s how they normally carry their babies – by mouth!

                  Life is harsh. Well, it is. Just like this baby crocodile, when it was hatched, his mom’s presence is absent. Although life sucks, still life should go on and be lived.

                                                              6 Ways to Be a Successful Risk Taker and Take More Chances

                                                              6 Ways to Be a Successful Risk Taker and Take More Chances

                                                              I’ve stood on the edge of my own personal cliffs many times. Each time I jumped, something different happened. There were risks that started off great, but eventually faded. There were risks that left me falling until I hit the ground. There were risks that started slow, but built into massive successes.

                                                              Every risk is different, but every risk is the same. You need to have some fundamentals ready before you jump, but not too many.

                                                              It wouldn’t be a risk if you knew everything that was about to happen, would it? Here’re 6 ways to be a successful risk taker.

                                                              1. Understand That Failure Is Going to Happen a Lot

                                                              It’s part of life. Everything we do has failure attached to it. All successful people have stories of massive failure attached to them. Thinking that your risk is going to be pain free and run as smooth as silk is insane.

                                                              Expect some pain and failure. Actually, expect a lot of it. Expect the sleepless nights with crazy thoughts of insecurity that leave you trembling under the covers. It’s going to happen, no matter how positive you are about the risk you are about to take.

                                                              When failure hits, the only options are to keep going or quit. If you expect falling into a meadow of flowers and frolicking unicorns, then you’re going to immediately quit once you realize that getting to that meadow requires you to go through a rock filled cave filled with hungry bats.

                                                              2. Trust the Muse

                                                              Writing a story isn’t a big risk. It’s really just a risk on my time. So when I start writing a story, I’m scared it will be time wasted. Of course, it never really is. Even if the story doesn’t turn out fabulous, I still practiced.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              When I’ve taken risks in my life, the successful ones always seemed to happen when I followed the muse. Steven Pressfield describes the muse,

                                                              “The Muse demands depth. Shallow does not work for her. If we’re seeking her help, we can’t stay in the kiddie end. When we work, we have to go hard and go deep.”

                                                              The muse is a goddess who wants our attention and wants us to work on our passion.

                                                              If you’re taking a risk in anything, it’s assumed that there is some passion built up behind that risk. That passion, deep inside you, is the muse. Trust it, focus on it, listen to it.

                                                              The most successful articles and stories I write are the ones I’ve focused all my attention on. There were no interruptions during their creative development. I didn’t check my phone or go watch my Twitter feed. I was fully engaged in my work.

                                                              Trust the muse, focus your attention on your risk, let the ideas and path develop themselves, and leave the distractions at the side of the road.

                                                              3. Remember to Be Authentic

                                                              Taking a risk and then turning into something you’re not, is only going to lead to disaster. Whether you are risking a new relationship or new opportunity, you must be yourself throughout the entire process.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              How many times have you acted like you loved something just because the men or woman you just started going out with loved it?

                                                              For example, I’m not an office worker. I have an incredibly hard time working in a confined timeline (ie. 9-5). That’s why I write. I can do it whenever the mood strikes, I don’t have somebody breathing down my neck, telling me that I’m five minutes late, or missed a comma somewhere. I don’t have to walk on eggshells wondering if what I’m writing will get me fired or make me lose a promotion. I can just be myself, period.

                                                              One girlfriend didn’t understand that. She believed solely in the 9-5 motto, specifically something in human resources because that was a very stable job. I was scared for my future, but I stuck with the relationship because of my own insecurities and acted like I would do it to make her happy.

                                                              Here’s a tip: NEVER take away from your happiness to make somebody else satisfied (note I didn’t say happy).

                                                              Making somebody else happy will make you happy. Doing something to satisfy somebody is murder on your soul.

                                                              4. Don’t Take Any Risks While You’re Not Clearheaded

                                                              I’d been considering the risk for a couple weeks. It all sounded good. I was 22 and I could be rich in a couple of years. That’s what they were selling me, anyways.

                                                              One night, while at a house party with some friends, I found myself at a computer. A couple of my friends were standing nearby and asked me what I was doing. I told them I was considering starting my own business and it was only going to cost me $1,500.

                                                              Of course, when a bunch of drunk people are surrounded by more drunk people, things get enthusiastic. It sounded like the best business venture in the world to everybody, including me. So I signed up and gave them my credit card number.

                                                              A few painful months and close to $4,000 dollars lost later, I quit the business. I was young and fell into the pyramid scheme trap. It was an expensive drunk decision.

                                                              Drinking heavily and making decisions has a proven track record of failure. So when you have something important to decide, don’t let your emotions take over your brain.

                                                              5. Fully Understand What You’re Risking

                                                              It was the start of my baseball comeback. I got a tryout with a professional scout and killed it. After the tryout, he talked to my girlfriend and myself, making sure we understood I would be gone for up to 6 months at a time. That strain on the relationship could be tough.

                                                              We understood. I left to play ball, chose to stay in the city I played in, and a year later we broke up. Not because of baseball, see point 3 above. Taking big risks can have massive impacts on everything in your life from relationships to money. Know what you’re risking before you take the risk.

                                                              If you believe the risk will be worth it or you have the support you need from your family, then go ahead and make the leap.

                                                              You can get more guidance on how to take calculated risks from this article: How to Take Calculated Risk to Achieve More and Become Successful

                                                              As far as we know officially, this is our one shot at life, so why not take some risks?

                                                              The top thing people are saddened by on their deathbeds are these regrets. They wish they did more, asked that girl in the coffee shop out, spoke out when they should have, or did what they were passionate about.

                                                              Don’t regret. Learn and experience. Live. Take the risks you believe in. Be yourself and make the world a better place.

                                                              Now go ahead, take that risk and be successful at it!
