Life Lesson from Elephant

elephant

An elephant can lift in excess of a ton of weight with just its trunk. Still an elephant is conditioned to stay in one place with a weak rope and a stake. Only a small rope tied to its front leg holds an elephant. No chains, no cages. It is obvious that the elephant can, at anytime, break away from its bonds but for some reason, it does not. The reason is that, when the elephant is a baby and much smaller, it is tied to a strong chain and strong tree. The baby is weak but the chain and tree are strong. The baby is not used to being tied, so it keeps tugging and pulling the chain, in vain. A day comes when it realizes that all the tugging and pulling will not help and it gives up, thinking that it cannot break away from the bond. It stops and stands still.

And when the baby elephant becomes the mighty giant elephant, he is tied with a weak rope and a small stake. The elephant could with one tug, walk away free, but it goes nowhere because it has been conditioned to believe that it cannot break away. It believes that the rope can still hold it, so it never tries to break free.

REFLECTION: Like the elephants, we also go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before. We are also being held back by old beliefs and avoid trying something new because of a limiting belief about ourselves. At times, we are also held back by someone else's limiting beliefs about ourselves. Whatever we can conceive and believe, we can achieve.

Clarity of mind, due application, adequate skills, focus on goal and lot of initiative are the means for accomplishing things.
