Cheetahs are champion sprinters in hunting for prey. But they only last some couple of seconds before tiring out. An exhausted cheetah needs enough time to free up this weakness before he hunts again.
Therefore, they will require a readjustment of tactics to this change. Generally, this is what had led to their prey escapes.

This implies that speed isn’t everything.

Even when a cheetah catches his prey, he can’t eat until he’s recovered from the annoying exercises. This rest may take between 20 and 30 minutes.

Cheetahs aren’t strong enough to defend themselves in a fight with other cats. Once they sense danger, they’ll give up and abandon their meal.

This implies that strength is also needed.

The cheetah now understands that to be successful in hunting, he must have to save enough energy so as to complement his speed. Therefore, making sure that a defined plan is considered in the task and not just jumping on the plains to chase after little antelopes, which might just be meal for the tigers or lions.

This fable tale simply implies that we should measure our weakness and strength in all we do. And that we shouldn’t because of our strength ignore the weakness in us in the failures and near successes we have obtained.

Failure is another path through which we advance.
