It's Called Mind set - Story

I T ' S C A L L E D M I N D S E T

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 elephants 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.

³Well², he said,² when they are very young and much smaller we use the same
size rope to tie them and at that age, it¹s 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.² My
friend was amazed these animals could at any time break free from their
bonds but because the believed they couldn¹t, 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 pasts
