As one person was passing by the elephants, he suddenly
stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures
were being held by only a small rope tied to their front
leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants
could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were
tied to but for some reason, they did not.
That person saw a trainer nearby & asked why these
beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there &
made no attempt to run away.
“Well,” he said, “when they are very young & much
smaller we use the same size rope to tie them &
at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow
up, they are conditioned to believe that they cannot
break away. They believe the rope can still hold them,
so they never try to break free.”
That person was amazed. These animals could at any time
break free from their bonds but because they believed they
couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.
Like the elephants, how many of us go through life
hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply
because we failed at it once before? So make an attempt
to grow further…….Why shouldn’t we try it again…?
“YOUR ATTEMPT MAY FAIL…., BUT
NEVER FAIL TO MAKE AN ATTEMPT IN LIFE…..! ”
If u want something u never had,
Do something which u has never did.
Don’t go the way life takes U,
Take the life the way U want to go.
Remember UR born 2 live,
Not living bcoz UR born……!!!
