A man was walking along the road. He found a big elephant tied by a small rope on the front leg. The elephant was not tied with a chain but with a rope. The elephant was also not in a cage. The man was surprised. The elephant can break the rope off easily but it does not. He found the trainer who tamed the elephant close by. He asked him. “Why is the elephant not making any effort to get away? The trainer said. ”When the elephant was very young and much smaller we used the same size of rope to tie the elephant. At that age it was enough to hold the elephant. As the elephant grew up it was conditioned to believe that it cannot break away. The elephant believes the rope is too strong and cannot break free. The man was amazed. The elephant can at any time break free from its bonds but it does not do so because it believes it cannot. Friends, like the elephant how many of usgo through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something simply because we failed at it once before .As we know every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. So do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.No one has failed who keeps trying. As the English poet Oliver Goldsmith said” our greatest glory is not in ever falling but in rising every time we fall”. Failure is part of learning. We should never give up the struggle in life.so friends keep trying.
