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

      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.

                                                              10 Ways To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone And Enjoy Taking Risks

                                                              10 Ways To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone And Enjoy Taking Risks

                                                              The ability to take risks by stepping outside your comfort zone is the primary way by which we grow. But we are often afraid to take that first step.

                                                              In truth, comfort zones are not really about comfort, they are about fear. Break the chains of fear to get outside. Once you do, you will learn to enjoy the process of taking risks and growing in the process.

                                                              Here are 10 ways to help you step out of your comfort zone and get closer to success:

                                                              1. Become aware of what’s outside of your comfort zone

                                                              What are the things that you believe are worth doing but are afraid of doing yourself because of the potential for disappointment or failure?

                                                              Draw a circle and write those things down outside the circle. This process will not only allow you to clearly identify your discomforts, but your comforts. Write identified comforts inside the circle.

                                                              2. Become clear about what you are aiming to overcome

                                                              Take the list of discomforts and go deeper. Remember, the primary emotion you are trying to overcome is fear.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              How does this fear apply uniquely to each situation? Be very specific.

                                                              Are you afraid of walking up to people and introducing yourself in social situations? Why? Is it because you are insecure about the sound of your voice? Are you insecure about your looks?

                                                              Or, are you afraid of being ignored?

                                                              3. Get comfortable with discomfort

                                                              One way to get outside of your comfort zone is to literally expand it. Make it a goal to avoid running away from discomfort.

                                                              Let’s stay with the theme of meeting people in social settings. If you start feeling a little panicked when talking to someone you’ve just met, try to stay with it a little longer than you normally would before retreating to comfort. If you stay long enough and practice often enough, it will start to become less uncomfortable.

                                                              4. See failure as a teacher

                                                              Many of us are so afraid of failure that we would rather do nothing than take a shot at our dreams.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              Begin to treat failure as a teacher. What did you learn from the experience? How can you take that lesson to your next adventure to increase your chance of success?

                                                              Many highly successful people failed plenty of times before they succeeded. Here’re some examples:

                                                              5. Take baby steps

                                                              Don’t try to jump outside your comfort zone, you will likely become overwhelmed and jump right back in.

                                                              Take small steps toward the fear you are trying to overcome. If you want to do public speaking, start by taking every opportunity to speak to small groups of people. You can even practice with family and friends.

                                                              Take a look at this article on how you can start taking baby steps:

                                                              6. Hang out with risk takers

                                                              There is no substitute for this step.

                                                              Almost inevitably, their influence will start have an effect on your behavior.

                                                              Don’t say “Oh, I just don’t have the time for this right now.” Instead, be honest and say “I am afraid to do this.”

                                                              Don’t make excuses, just be honest. You will be in a better place to confront what is truly bothering you and increase your chance of moving forward.
