Elephant Rope

A gentleman was walking through an elephant camp, and he spotted that the elephants weren’t being kept in cages or held by use of chains. All that was holding them back from escaping the camp, was a small piece of rope tied to one of their legs

As the man gazed upon the elephants, he was completely confused as to why the elephants didn’t just use their strength to break the rope and escape the camp. They could easily have done so, but instead, they didn’t try at all. Curious and wanting to know the answer, he asked a trainer nearby why the elephants were just standing there and never tried to escape.

The trainer replied; “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 only reason the elephants weren’t breaking free and escaping from the camp was over time they adopted the belief that it just wasn’t possible.

Moral of the story:
No Matter how much the world tries to hold you back, always continue with the belief that what you want to achieve is possible. Believing you can become successful is the most important step in actually achieving it.

Johnny’s New Word

Shocked MomJohnny was a very observant little boy who loved being the center of attention. Every Wednesday Johnny’s mom had several women over to the house for lunch. When Johnny came running into the house saying a terrible word, everyone gasped. Johnny was sent to his room. He was told to never say that word again.

The next week Johnny’s mom said, “Do you remember the word I told you to never say again.” He said he did. Johnny’s mom said, “Remember the women from the church are coming over. If you will be a perfect gentleman, and you don’t say that bad word I will give you a quarter.”
The ladies came over for lunch. Johnny was a perfect gentlemen. He said all the right words. The ladies had a delightful time. When it was time for everyone to go, Johnny brought them all their coats. When everyone left, Johnny was given the quarter he was promised.

The next week Johnny knew the ladies from church were coming over to the house. Johnny decided to have a little discussion with his mom. “Is today the day the ladies from church are coming over for lunch?” “Yes Johnny.” “Do you remember the word you gave me a quarter to never say again?” “Yes, Johnny”. “Now, I have a word that I think is worth a buck.”
