< RM > story - The Mental Chain

The Mental Chain

Most people are like the circus elephant.
Have you ever seen a giant elephant in an
indoor arena tied to a little wooden stake.
That huge creature can pick up two thousand
pounds with its trunk, yet it calmly stays
tied. Why?
When that elephant was just a baby, and
not very strong, it was tied by a huge chain
to an iron stake that could not be moved.
Regardless of how hard it tried, it could not
break the chain and run free. After  a while it
just gave up. Later, when it is strong, it never
attempts to break free. The "imprint" is per-
manent. "I can't! I can't!' it says.
There are millions of people who behave
like this creature of the circus. They have
been bound, tied and told "You'll never make
it," so many times they finally call it quits.
The may have dreams, but the "imprinting"
keeps pulling them back.
Today, eliminate the source of your limita-
tions. When you mentally break free, the
boundaries will be removed from your future.
