A a man was passing by some 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 anytime, 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
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
Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle.
Why not leave that comfort zone of yours and get your hands on something new.
It doesn't matter how long you've prayed, fasted and waited, just know that in no time and in God's time, you will begin to see dividends.
With this, I will like to end with this chat between a man and God.
A man walked to the top of a hill to talk to God.
The man asked, “God, what’s a million years to you?” and God
said, “A minute.”
Then the man asked, “Well, what’s a million dollars to you?” and
God said, “A penny.”
Then the man asked, “God…..can I have a penny?” and God said,
“Sure…..in a minute.”
And I rest my case.
