Long ago, a man went to see a circus show. Before the show began, he saw that a lot of elephants were held by only a small rope tied to their leg. The man suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that such huge creatures were being held by such a thin yet small rope.
There were no chains and no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could break away the ropes at any time from their bonds but for some reason they weren’t even trying. The man saw the elephant’s trainer standing next to elephants. He was curious to know why the elephants weren’t trying to escape from here.
To this, the trainer told him that they were like this since the time they were very young. At that time, it was enough to hold them. As they grew up, they were conditioned to believe they could not break away. They believed the rope could still hold them. On hearing this, the man was completely shocked. He was looking at the elephants in a pity and he went away from there.
Moral of the story:
High chances you are your biggest hurdle on your path to success & a joyful life.
We all survive with a “FALSE HUMAN BELIEF” doubting our own strength which lowers our self-esteem, self-respect, capacity & capabilities. Keep working on yourself & you will experience a better version of yourself with time.
Each one of us has the capacity to experience deep joy, but it sometimes takes work. If you’ve been feeling down, take a look at the kinds of thoughts you’ve been having. Maybe even write them down just so you can really see the way you currently view life. If you find that your thoughts are more negative than positive, you have to make a conscious effort to start changing them.
Make a list of all your negative thoughts and then write out the opposite thought for each one. Stand in front of the mirror and read the positive thoughts out loud to yourself.
Happiness does not depend on what you have or who you are; it solely relies on what you think. -BUDDHA.
Have a goal. Wake up earlier. Smile. Start running early morning. Make a new recipe. Buy a weighted blanket. Travel. Cuddle your puppy or horse. Say “I love you & I care for you” to someone. Laugh to dad jokes. Discover the universe. Sing your favourite song. Have your own blog/business/investments. Sleep well. Go to the specific place you desire. Be in peace with yourself. Take a picture on the top of a mountain. No matter the kind of goal, have one GOAL. And fight for it, keep fighting till you get it done.
Wake up everyday with motivation, and fall asleep with a smile. Live your life to the fullest, every second. Do exactly what you want, and accomplish it. You are the master of your life. You decide. You create. So go. Never doubt of your capacities, and go.
So I just found one of the most shocking and weirdest experiments and I have to share it with you. Let me explain, in 1950 Dr. Curt Richer did a series of experiments using water buckets and rats. The first experiment richer put the rats in the buckets and fill them half way with water, although rats are good swimmers they drowned after about 15 minutes. In the second experiment richer repeated the same process and just when the rats were about to give up, the researchers took them out of the bucket, dry them off and let them rest for a few minutes. They put them back in the bucket for the second round on the second try.
How long do you think the rats lasted? Another 15 minutes or 10-5 minutes? They lasted 60 hours because the rats believe that eventually someone would rescue them. They use all their energy to keep swimming and avoid death. If HOPE got rats to swim for 60 hours, imagine the affects your beliefs have on yourself. Capacity is merely a state of mind. And faith can actually move mountains. HOPE is the key.
