The Rabbit and the Turtle | Rabbit and Tortoise Story

the rabbit and the turtle

Once upon a time, there was the rabbit and the turtle. They were good friends. They used to meet and play everyday. The Rabbit always boasted that he could run faster than the tortoise (turtle).

The Rabbit and the Turtle

One day he decided to run. He had chosen a starting point, track and finishing point. Apparently, the Rabbit was running fast and soon he left the tortoise far behind.

The tortoise was moving slowly and steadily. When the rabbit saw that the distance between him and the tortoise was very large and even he could not see the tortoise, so he thought of taking rest for a while. He stopped under a tree, and somehow he fell asleep in no time. Meanwhile, the tortoise was moving slowly and steadily and reached the finishing point. When the rabbit woke up he saw that the tortoise had already won the race.


Do you even remember the moral of it?

Do you think the story ends here?

No ..

The rabbit once again asked to run and the next day they planned the race. This time the rabbit was alert and didn't make the same mistake and obviously won the race.


One time failure is not forever failure, provided, one learns lessons and rectifies mistakes.

Do you think the story ends here?

, No ..

Rabbit and Tortoise Story

This time the tortoise asked that we have to race again. The rabbit agreed. Turtle also asked that this time, he would decide the starting point, the finishing point and the track. Rabbit said okay go ahead.

Turtle thought and chose a track where they need to cross a river.

Both got off to an early start. And the rabbit reached the bank of the river, but stopped, because he could not cross the river. The tortoise came steady and swam in the river, as it can walk on plains and swim in water. Thus the tortoise won the race.


One should analyze one's strengths and change the playing field accordingly, so that he/she can get success.

Do you think the story ends here?

, No ..

This time both have discussed that they have different strengths and weaknesses. There is no point in fighting between them. We should work as a team and remove each other's weaknesses. So they decided that now they will race with other animals and they will work as a team. So on the plain surface the rabbit was carrying the tortoise on its back and ran fast, and in the water, the tortoise carried the rabbit and swam. That way they could leave all the animals behind.


Individuals may have strengths or weaknesses, but when you work as a team by putting together the strengths of individuals and overcoming the weaknesses of others, you will always be successful.

Moral of The Rabbit and the Turtle Story

Slow and steady wins the race but correcting mistakes in failure can lead to success next time. Working on your own strengths will help you achieve success and resource mobilization and working as a team will always beat individual performers

So never give up, face failure, face the situation – not against the opponent.
