What you’re about to read is one the fastest growing stories on Facebook. In the last 24 hours alone, it has been liked by over 52,000 people. Judging by those numbers, it won’t be long before it goes viral.
Simply put, the story is an eye opening tale about how we let failure hold us back in life. As a man walked past a group of elephants, he noticed something very strange. The elephants were being secured in place with a single rope around their front leg.
The man thought this was a terrible way of securing the elephants. After all, they could very easily break the rope and run off. However, when he talks to their trainer, he learns something quite shocking.
Check it out below.
As a man was passing 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 their bonds but for some reason, they did not.
He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use 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.”
The man 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?
