The Elephant Rope and the Bumblebee

As a man was passing through and elephant camp, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge and majestic creatures weren’t being kept in cages or held by chains.
All that was holding them back from freedom was just a small piece of rope tied to one of their legs.
The man gazed upon the elephants, he was completely baffled as to why the elephants didn’t just use their obvious strange the break the rope and escape.
The could have done it without effort but instead they didn’t try to at all.
Curious and wanting to know why, he asked the trainer nearby as to why the elephants were just standing there and never tried to escape.
The trainer replied to the man. “Well 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.”

According to researchers, the Bumblebee's body is is not aerodynamically built for flying.
Its body is too heavy and its wing span too small.  
But the bumblebee doesn't know that..  and it keeps flying.


For the elephants bound by the ropes, the only reason that these majestic creatures weren’t breaking free and escaping was because over time they had adopted the belief that it just wasn’t possible.

How many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, just because we failed at it before or because society has told us that it is not the norm and cannot be done?
Failure is a part of learning in life; we shouldn’t give up when we meet struggles in life.  
The bumblebee teaches us that...
When you don't know your limitations, you will go out and you will surprise yourself.

On hindsight, you wonder if you had any limitations, you are self imposing a limiting belief on yourself..  
If you don't let others put limitations on you, pls eliminate your own self doubt.
Believe that you are stronger and more resilient than you think you are.
