There’s a story that motivational speakers like to tell: Two hikers are on a backcountry trail. They stop to rest. Hearing a rustling in the bushes, they crane for a better view and see two bear cubs playing near a stream. They watch the cubs for awhile, bemused. One of the men wheels around, freezes in terror and jabs his buddy in the ribs.
“Look up there” he rasps. “It’s the mama grizzly bear, and we just walked between her and her cubs. What are we going to do?”
