I was walking through an elephant camp and spotted that the elephants weren’t being kept in cages or held using chains. All that was holding them back from escaping the camp, was a small piece of rope tied to one of their legs. I was completely confused as to why the elephants didn’t just use their strength to break the rope and escape the camp.
They could easily have done so, but instead, they didn’t try to at all. Curious and wanting to know the answer, I asked a trainer nearby why the elephants were just standing there and never tried to escape.
The trainer replied: - “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 only reason that the elephants weren’t breaking free and escaping from the camp was that over time they adopted the belief that it just wasn’t possible.
NTVirusTheGuru: - No matter how much the world tries to hold you back, always continue with the belief that what you want to achieve is possible. Believing you can become successful is the most important step in achieving it.

This phrase implies Shakespeare’s belief that a name means very little, but the individual’s worth counts.! I came up with this concept of Helping people, as I believe helping others is an art that requires a great amount of energy and passion.
