Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Bob Ryland.
In India, they tie the leg of a baby elephant to a stake in the ground so that it stays within the length of the rope. This rope is strong enough to keep the baby restrained, so it eventually learns that it cannot go any further and gives up.
As the elephant grows up into a massive creature, it could easily break free from the rope, but doesn’t because it has been previously conditioned.
People are the same way. Psychologists call it “learned helplessness,” which means because of certain past events, we think that we are helpless and do not have the power to change our circumstances.
But this is false. It’s all psychological.
So what’s holding you back?
Do you know what is keeping you from starting your own business?…picking up the guitar?…improving your serve?…or travelling more?
I’ll tell you what, it’s YOU!
Don’t be an elephant, break the rope!
You don’t have to be great at the start, but you need to start to be great.
Thanks for reading.
