Believe – The Elephant Rope
A bag back traveler travels to a village in Africa for non-profit work. While he was visiting the village, He came across a large compound where he saw a lot of elephants. What was so shocking for him to see was, all the elephants
The Village Leader informed him how they were able to contain the elephants in these techniques.
It is simple the leader 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 reason why the Elephant never tried to break free is because they never tried as they believed they cannot.
Moral of the story: Believe in yourself and be who you are.
