The Elephant Rope

As a man was passing the 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 free.”

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 once before?

Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.

The Lady and The Doctor

A simple woman went to the doctor and, after doing some tests, the doctor said:
–        You’re a Christian aren’t you? I really like Christians, the only problem is they talk a lot about Jesus, and say nothing about Mary.
(silence)
–        Can I ask you a question, doctor?
–        Yes, of course.
–        If your secretary had told me that you were not in when I arrived today, but that your mother was, do you think I would have stayed to see her?
–        No, she’s not a doctor. I’m the doctor.
–        That’s right. He died on the cross for me, not her.

10 Steps For A Great Idea To Be Born

1. Observe, observe and observe. Everywhere you go, keep your eyes open. There could be something right in front of you that many people are in need of.
2. Allow your mind to work with inspiration. Let it flow in naturally. Play with your ideas. Try something once. If it does not work, try again and again.
3. Don’t be negative. Make sure you do not ignore any possibility. Take notes of all your attempts. If you need to look back on them later on, you have kept good records.
4. Ride on someone’s back. Listen to the people around you and use their ideas to motivate yourself in creating your own.
5. Be actively aware. The more inspiration you have, the more probable it is that one spark will turn into a great idea.
6. Daydream. Set aside time during the day to meditate on your ideas, if possible early in the morning. Our minds are usually fresh early in the day. Let your imagination work.
7. Work with old ideas. Come up with new ideas by considering the old ones and changing them. Changes can happen when things are added, subtracted, turned upside down, and pulled apart. In some instances this is a difficult exercise, but it will pay off!
8.Take risks. Have the courage to take risks by adopting new ideas and following a new course of action.
9. Be curious. Don’t be afraid to follow your instincts and curiosity by investing time in things that interest you.
10.Believe in yourself. Very important!! When your idea is born and proved to work, don’t forget to register the patent.
