You can’t say “lion” without thinking “king” and “beast”. And those guided by this dominant creature have a reputation for being a little of both.
While assertiveness and uncompromising personal power are hallmarks of this spirit animal, its leadership qualities are probably the biggest reason for its success. So it will take a big personality to live up to the expectations of your guide, for if and when you fail, no one is going to be harder on you than you. And while others may rejoice at your failure – sometimes out of envy but mainly because of resentment -- the lion couldn’t care less.
While it’s not all fun and games being led around by a lion, it’s better than being chased by one.
