Almost everybody knows the fear of the rabbit: do you know also its resilience and focus on goal?

Three years ago I met a rabbit called Minny and what I previously knew about this funny pet was: a rabbit is always scared and worried about predators due to a weak control of its amygdala!
Knowing Minny I’ve discovered that these characteristics are true, but I’ve also realized how a rabbit can be persistently focused on its goal and with a high resilience. How? I will tell you!
Rabbit’s Focus on Goal: you should never let a book, a magazine or a houseplant in the sights of the rabbit’s eyes or nose! Since the rabbit strongly enjoys biting paper, fresh grass and electric cables (be careful!) it will go and bite them overcoming any kind of obstacles.
Rabbit’s Resilience: unfortunately Minny broke her leg. That happens quite often to rabbits due to their light but fragile bones. Despite suffering from her pain Minny is always willing to demonstrate her affection and she never gives up! Now the leg has fully recovered!
Moral n.1: the first impression is important. However why not taking the opportunity to enjoy that you were wrong – knowledge by change!
Moral n.2: the rabbit is a great example of how leveraging weaknesses and strengths in order to survive in this tough world!
