I think the little fish is scared and worried because the cat tries to eat it and feel threatened.
The little fish should plan a good strategy so the cat can’t catch it and stop bothering it.

Have you ever felt that you were in a situation similar to the fish?

At different times I felt like the fish , for example, when a girl pretended to my boyfriend and I had to face to stop the situation, because our relationship was in danger and the life of the girl obviously, jaja.

What would you do if you ever feel like the cat feels?

If I feel like the cat would probably be very cautious and not hasten to catch it because it can escape, I like to be patient for get what I want.

Is the situation on the picture familiar to you?

Yes, it is. I believe that this situation is familiar.

Why? Explain.

Because the life presents different situations where we feel like a fish threatened and we must resolve this situation and get out as quickly as possible or feel like the cat and always put our best effort to achieve our objectives.

To avoid the lack of opportunities is necessary to always be prepared to stand out from the other people and not waste the opportunities that present themselves, working hard to achieve the proposed goals, and achieving success.

1. Yes. The fish should be worried because the cat is trying to eat it.
2. Yes, many times I've been in that situation, but I could have been avoided.
3. Well, I think the cat is in a very comfortable situation, in this case if one is hungry will do everything possible to eat, although I would think and find other things to eat. (it's a metaphor)
4. Yes.
5. because at some point I felt trapped and did not have enough capacity to get out of these problems, for example, repeatedly passed through my mind to leave school because he felt he could not continue due to lack of interest, which led to have low grades, but fortunately thought about it and here I am.
6. I think a person can not avoid these situations, there always comes a time when one is stuck and can not be sold, but one thing is certain, "to want is power". The opportunities are where you seek them, depends on you find it and remember that practice makes perfect.
