It Is Called "MINDSET"

Thoughtful shoutout story
As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these hug creatures were big 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 didn't. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

"Well" he said, "when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and at that agar, it's enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they can't break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free". My friend was amazed, these animals could at any time break free from their binds but because they believed they couldn't they were stuck right where they were.

Liker the elephants, how may of us go through life hanging onto a belief we can't do something, simple 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"
