The great thing about this story, it is so easy to digest. The story that I’m talking about is so powerful and inspirational that many of them really do get you thinking and even leaves you speechless at times.
A gentleman was walking through an elephant camp, and he saw an elephants weren’t being kept in cages or held by the 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 to at all. He was so 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 that the elephants weren’t breaking free and escaping from the camp was because over time they were 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.

My parents are very talkative and I do believe that most parents are also the same. Since I was a kid, I never really listen to what they are saying. I ignored their advice and I end up in that position where I desperately need help in fixing my life.
When I cried at that time and I decided to talk with my mother. She told me about her past. Her childhood behavior was same to like me. Until she was a teenager, until she got older and marry my father, she never felt any regrets of what she has done to her parents. When I was two, my grandmother died followed by my grandfather death when I was only six years old.
However, now I’m 15, exactly one year since I started to change to become a better person. I remembered when my mother told me that she regrets everything that she has done to her parents. One thing that stuck on my mind until now was this sentence my mother said, “if I could turn back time or sacrifice any of my organs to let my parents live for just one second so that I can apologize for what I’ve done to them, I would do it. It touched my heart.
Therefore, from her experience, I realized that what I was done wasn’t right. My parents have sacrificed their time to take care of me and they love me more than anyone in the world. Once my dearest friend or even cousins left me, there are the ones who are always there for me. I said to myself that I will one day become the person that they want me to be.
If your parents are still alive, be thankful and take care of them. Don’t let them go without the successful feeling that they’ve done enough for you. Your parents should be your ideal and following on their path leads to you immortal success. Source: Charismatic Planet
