One antler of a dead sambur, for no living deer, would lie in that position, projected above the low bushes. A convenient moss-covered rock afforded my rubber shod feet silent and safe hold, and as I drew myself erect, the sambur came into full view. Its hindquarters had been eaten away and lying on either side of the kill. Were the pair, the tiger being on the far side with only his hind legs showing. Both tigers were asleep. Ten feet straight in front, to avoid a dead branch, and thirty feet would give me a shot at the tiger’s neck, but in planning the stalk I had forgotten the silent spectator.

Where I stood. I was invisible to him, but before the ten feet had been covered. I came into view and, alarmed at my near proximity, he flapped off his perch. Omitting as he did so to notice a thin creeper dependent from a branch above him against which he collided and came ignominiously to the ground. The tigress was up and away in an instant, clearing at a bound the kill and her mate, the tiger, not being slow to follow; a possible shot, but too risky with thick jungle ahead where a wounded animal would have all the advantages.

Progress in life depends a good deal on crossing one threshold after another. Some time ago a man watched his little nephew try to write big names. It was hard work, very hard work. The name with comparative ease. No new thresholds confront him. This is the way with all of us. As soon as we cross one threshold, as soon as we conquer one difficulty, a new difficulty appears or should appear. Some people make the mistake of steering clear of thresholds. Anything that requires genuine thinking and use of energy, they avoid.

They prefer to stay in a rut where thresholds are not met. Probably they have been at their job a number of years. Things are easy for them. They make no effort to seek out new obstacles to overcome. Real progress stops. under such circumstances.

Some middle-aged and elderly people greatly enrich their lives by continuing to cross new thresholds. One man went into an entirely new business when he was past middle life and made a success of it. De Morgan didn’t start to write novels until he was passed throughout his life.

And it is undoubtedly better to try and fall, than not to try at all. Then one can be placed in the category of Swiss mountaineer of whom it was said, “He died climbing.

” When a new difficulty rises to obstruct your path, do not complain. Accept the challenges. Determine to cross this threshold as you have crossed numerous another threshold in your past life. In the words of the poet, do not rest but strive to pass from one dream to other grander dreams.

There can be no real progress where people move in a rut and avoid new obstacles and everything that requires genuine thinking and use of energy. some elderly people try to maintain the enthusiasm of life by continuing to overcome every new difficulty. We should Never complain of difficulties that obstruct our path but grapple with them hopefully and heroically.

Heading:- Overcoming new difficulties.
