Nothing In The Universe Can Stop You From Letting Go and Starting Over
– Guy Finley
Here I present one more short story with moral to boost some confidence and let it go. Let it go that is holding you. Be free from all the pain and follow what you have to. Please read it fully and share your opinion.
As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at any time, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.
He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer 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 man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.
Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?
Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.
In my experience, I come across many people that have constructed mind-forged manacles. They are the people who keep saying “I can’t do this”, “This is not for me”, “I am not right for this”, “My family didn’t let me do”.
I take none of these negative statements as restrictions by people. They are restrictions or manacles forged by their mind. Don’t agree with me?
Let me explain. Have you ever interviewed, met or read about the people. If yes these are obviously people who are successful (I mean who will publish failures). So do you think the world was very nice to them since they were born? And when they decided to do business or pursue their dream the entire world came forward to help them. Right? Nope.
They faced problems – people related, process related or power related. Dhirubhai Ambani’s father wanted him to take up a government job. Mahendra Sing Dhoni’s father insisted him to be and pursue the Railway job. Kangna Ranaut’s family wanted her to be a doctor or teacher and get married but she escaped to be the actress in Mumbai. Arunima Sinha has physical challenges to scale Mt. Everest and she also has to prove that she is not coward to commit suicide.
This calls for a whole new theory of emotional intelligence. If you have right emotion or if you can filter the negative emotions out and nurture the positive emotions, you rule your life.
