Break Free From That Mindset!

Hello all, are you ready for some paradigm shift? Then go ahead till the end of the post.

Today, while I was doing my usual social media rounds, I found this great piece and thought of sharing with you all here. The original post is credited to ‘Releasing Me Today’ and it was titled “It’s Called Mindset”. Read below:

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a rope tied to their legs. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they didn’t. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well”, he 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.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were. The powerful and gigantic creature has limited its present abilities by the limitations of its past.

Like, the elephants, how many of us go through life holding onto a belief that we cannot do something simply because we failed at it once before? How many of us refuse to attempt something new and challenging because of our so called MINDSET?

That’s calls for you to Break Free from your limiting Mindset today. Would you?

Go forth and do so!
