It’s Called Mindset

A little motivation for those of you who feel limited from the chains of your own habits.

Rethink your mindset…

“As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a rope tied to their legs. it was obvious that the elephant could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. 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 used the same size rope to tie them and at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot 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 bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were. The powerful and gigantic creature has limited its present abilities by the limitations of its past.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life holding onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before? How many of us refuse to attempt something new and challenging because of our so called MINDSET?

Your attempt may fail, but never fail to make an attempt…

CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.”


: : : Sometimes we don’t learn from our mistakes. Sometimes we’ve no choice but to walk away. Tried to break my heart, well it’s broke. Tried to hang me high, well I’m choked. Wanted rain on me, well I’m soaked…soaked to the skin. It’s the end where I begin : : :
