What is an Elephant Mindset?

 

Have you ever wondered why you are stuck and thought you had a chain around your ankle?   Then you have an Elephant mindset.   Listen up….

 

 

At the zoo I was passing the elephants, 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 anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

Seeing a trainer nearby I 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.”

This was amazing. 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.

 

Don’t get stuck like the Elephant

 

How many of us have tied ourselves to a job or situation that, for some reason, we just haven’t let ourselves leave?

 

How many of you have felt stuck?  

 

Don't get Stuck like the ElephantOr felt like there’s no way to free yourself?

 

Just lift that leg and try!

How many of you have felt stuck?  Or felt like there’s no way to free yourself?


Just lift that leg and try!
