When you are born as an elephant, in a circus, they put a strong rope around your neck. You will try to get away with no luck and give up…
but you will really give up to the point that, as you grow older into this massive beautiful creature, you could even have a rope attached to your neck but not attached to anything else and not escape, because the trainers know, you won’t even try to get away, because in your mind it’s a waste. You had tried long time ago and it did not work, why would it work now ?
Are you giving up on certain things?
Did you believe from small that you were not good enough?
There are things that will heavy us down, or bring reminders (like the rope on your neck) telling us we cannot do it.
Consider why you feel this way, revisit your feelings, shift your thinking.
