It's called mindset!

Story that inspires me every time I am about to give up!

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by a rope tied to their legs. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. 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 they 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?

Your attempt may fail, but never fail to make an attempt....
Choose not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past....

Fail fast!

We all fail at some point in life, its inescapable and we are no exception.
When we fail we have nothing more to lose. We have hit the bottom and the only place to go is up!
To get full benefit of failure we have to acknowledge it, we need to understand the reasons for it and retain the learnings not the pain.
Get back to work, fix it, do it different and better next time!
