Number Four The Fox 2 You have to think on your feet, got to move fast, quicker than the others. That's what we're taught to do, behave like everything in life is a competition. It's rare to find someone who's kind just for the sake of it, people usually have an agenda and they always want something from you or someone you know. In this social game, it's imperative to be clever, to act like a fox, to take what we want fast and not make a big deal out of it.

It's true that people love attention, I think we all know someone like that. That guy or girl who was kind of nice but with a strong smell of desperation, those guys that want to be successful and are quite intense about it. Those aren't foxes, they're snakes. I've learned throughout the years that every day, every single event, is an opportunity. You never know who you're going to meet or what's going to happen. That's why it's important to be a fox.

A fox is careful, clever, smart, a bit dangerous but cool to look at. The fox is a person who will take what he or she needs without disturbing others, he will achieve success in the quietest manner possible. Victory is for the fox to savour, not the rest of the jungle. Self-government has taught me how to be a fox, how to patiently wait for the right timing, snatching and conquering the world without suspicion. Foxes are everywhere and you hardly ever notice them. It's time to control your impulses and act more carefully amongst a crowd of snakes. Don't you think?

// Tienes que pensar en el momento, moverte rápido, más que los demás. Eso nos enseñan a hacer, comportarnos como si la vida fuera una competencia. Es raro encontrar a alguien que es amable sólo porque sí, la gente usualmente tiene una agenda y siempre quieren algo de ti o de alguien que conoces. En este juego social, es imperativo ser astuto, actuar como un zorro, tomar lo que queremos rápidamente y no hacer escándalo al respecto.

Ciertamente, la gente ama la atención, creo que todos conocemos a alguien así. Ese niño o niña que es medio buena onda pero huele fuerte a desesperación, esa gente que quiere ser exitosa y es muy intensa al respecto. Ellos no son zorros, son serpientes. He aprendido a través de los años que cada día, cada evento, es una oportunidad. Nunca sabes a quién vas a conocer o qué va a suceder. Por eso es importante ser un zorro.

Un zorro es cuidadoso, astuto, listo, un poco peligroso pero es padre mirarlo. El zorro es la persona que toma lo que él o ella necesita sin molestar a otros, el que adquiere el éxito en la forma más silenciosa posible. La victoria es algo para que el zorro saboree, no el resto de la jungla. El auto-control me ha enseñado cómo ser un zorro, cómo esperar pacientemente por los momentos correctos y conquistar al mundo sin ser sospechado. Los zorros están en todos lados y casi nunca los percibimos. Es hora de controlas tus impulsos y actuar más cuidadosamente en medio de una multitud de serpientes. ¿No lo creen?
