Let’s start with some positive thoughts. Sometimes people need kick start to keep them going. While I was surfing online I came across some beautiful sayings and some stories I would like to share.
1. Thought over Quote
“When you’re going through hell, keep on going.” — Winston Churchill
Try to get a meaning out of this quote. Can you?
Think! Think! Oh come on I know you can do it. It is easy.
In this process you will automatically try to develop some positive thoughts on your own.
Let me tell you what I personally think about this quote.
– When you are in hell, obviously you won’t stop and you will try to come out. This is one positive thing in it.
– Also, if you are in hell and in way between you think that’s enough and try to come back. On your return journey you have to go through same hell again to come back to normal. So why come back. Go forward and let it finish. May be return path is longer than that is remaining!!
– Third and last one suppose you come back and you come to know that you have to cross this hell and there is no other option left. So you have to again go through same hell. Then why to waste time in coming back.
Hence, the quote.
2. Next is a short story.
Ever thought over the fact that Elephants as huge creatures are being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. Why so? Elephants could, at anytime can break away from their bonds but for some reason, they do not. When asked to elephant trainer he answered:
“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.”
These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they are 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?
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
List to be continued……..
