An Elephant Who Believes He Can't

The author of the following story is unknown, but it delivers a powerful message.

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,” the 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?

The story of an elephant tied to a rope is a great metaphor for things that are holding us back from achieving the success we desire in our lives. In this video I share with you how to identify the breakdowns in your business systems, and how to fix them to create the success you desire.

The Easiest And Fastest Way To Success

In this video I share with you the easiest and fastest way to succeed in any business. Follow in the footsteps of the people that have gone before you. These people have already figured things out. They know what can go wrong and how to do things right. They know what works. If you were to tap into their system, you'd receive similar results.

I'm constantly investing in my own education, by buying books, CDs, courses, attending seminars and asking for advice from people that have already succeeded at what I want to do. If you're seeking success, seek out others who have already done what you're trying to do, and see if they have a product that teaches their system.

If you're a magician, and you want to do school assembly shows, there are magicians out there who have their systems for sale. All you have to do is follow the system and you'll get similar results. If you're looking to be successful as a close-up magician, I have a system. If you follow my system, you'll get similar results to what I've received.

Too many people think they already know this stuff, but I always say, "To know and not do is to not yet know." If you're not implementing these systems, you don't know it. You may think you do, but you don't.

If you're looking to be a successful speaker, there are people out there that are amazing speakers and have very successful businesses. What are they doing to become successful? Do they have a system that you can tap into?

In any business endeavor, there are people who have succeeded at what you're trying to do. Tap into their knowledge, implement the system, and see results.
