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.
Grandpa once said “If you are confident about your views or values, never expect others to certify it”. I was still in my teen days when he said it. He died at the age of 97 before 3 years. I am somehow understanding his words how & why. I talk a lot about building confidence to develop a stronger self-esteem, which can later help in growing self-respect further. Let me explain all in few words;
1- Confident people don’t force their views on others. They don’t force their beliefs on anyone else whether those beliefs are political or religious. They have a clear understanding that these beliefs in choices are personal for everyone. They may stand up for themselves when others oppose, but will never challenge what other people think nor feel the need to tell them that they are wrong.
2- Never compromise your values. Having defined core values is foundational principles to any pursuit in life. Confident people live in alignment with their values and will never compromise themselves what they hold dear. They use these values as they make decisions in both life and work. Even if it means giving up something desirable in the short term. When it comes to confidence one thing is certain, truly confident people always have the upper hand over the doubtful and the skittish. Because they inspire others and they make things happen. Embracing the behaviors of confident people is a great way to increase your odds for success which in turn will lead to more confidence. (Not my words)
I don’t know how true this is. Yes, I am a LEO. In my case, I don’t have anything like EGO. My self-respect is my only possession. You have to respect me as I respect myself. If that gets hammered, I don’t know who you are!!
Don’t be afraid. Don’t forget what you are. I used to look upto you when things go up or down. You ruled my world. You was the only reason behind my happiness for a while. We all have a rough patch in our lives which dragged our self-esteem down to zero. Hiding & escaping isn’t a solution. Face it like what you used to be. How can you just give up? Lessons are learnt. Digest it, try to see life for what it is. Don’t be surprised when things get better. Any negativity can’t push you down for long. Open your eyes and allow yourself to see a better you. Experience some good days being a legit self. That 07-Feb is the best day of my life, actually 08-Feb for you. Vibe right. You are my sunshine, doesn’t matter where/what you are.
Focus on building your SELF-ESTEEM, which will strengthen your SELF-RESPECT.
We humans don’t understand the difference between self-respect & EGO, which results in hurting self. EGO & PRIDE will get crushed by you or someone else someday, they are flighty in nature & help with nothing. Focus on being a TRUE you.
Toxic people are nothing but people with negative mindset. Because they can’t value/love themselves, they try to damage someone else’s integrity. There is a cure, they need to feed their self respect instead of their ego. It’s easy & everyone deserves happiness.
