Read and think for a moment......


As I was passing the elephants, I 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.
I saw a trainer near by and asked why these beautiful, magnificent
animals
just stood there and made no attempt to get away. "Well," he 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."
I 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?

True .Right???

another one... I got in a mail...
Knowledge is Power*

Guy gets on a plane and finds himself seated next to an attractive
brunette. He immediately turns to her and makes his move; "I've heard
that flights pass quicker if you strike up a conversation with your
fellow passenger, so let's talk"
The brunette who had just opened her book, closes it and says; "What
would you like to discuss?"
"Oh I don't know," says the guy "how about nuclear power?"
"Well that could be interesting, but first let me ask you a question.
Horses, cows and deer all eat grass. Yet the deer excretes small
pellets, the horse muffin sized chunks and the cow big squishy
pancakes.
How come?"
Dumbfounded the man replies; "I have absolutely no idea"

"I see" says the brunette, "So you feel qualified to talk about nuclear
power, but clearly you don't know shit!!"

One more............  tongue3


There once was a bunch of tiny frogs,...
     
  ... who arranged a running competition.
  The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.
   
  A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer
on the contestants...
   
  The race began...
   
   
  Honestly:
  No one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the
top of the tower.
  You heard statements such as:
  "Oh, WAY too difficult!!
  They will NEVER make it to the top."
  or:
  "Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!"
   
  The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one...
  ... Except for those who in a fresh tempo were climbing higher and
higher...
   
  The crowd continued to yell
  "It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!"
   

  More tiny frogs got tired and gave up...
  ...But ONE continued higher and higher and higher...
  This one wouldn't give up!
   
   
  At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Except for
the one tiny frog who after a big effort was the only one who reached
the top!
  THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this
one frog managed to do it?
   
  A contestant asked the tiny frog how the one who succeeded had found
the strength to reach the goal?
 
  It turned out...
  That the winner was DEAF!!!!
   
  The wisdom of this story is:
   
  Never listen to other people's tendencies to be
  negative or pessimistic...
  ...cause they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from
you. The ones you have in your heart!
   
  Always think of the power words have.
  Because everything you hear and read will affect your actions!
   
  Therefore:
   
  ALWAYS be...POSITIVE!
