Persistence (THE STORY)

persistence-1This is a story about the importance of being persistent and never giving up, no matter how many failures you have experienced in the past.

A man was spending his holiday in Africa. One day he watched the elephants passing by. To his great surprise, these giant strong animals were being held only by a small rope, tied to their front leg. Obviously, they could easily run away any moment. However, they did not. Then he saw a trainer and asked him, how could this happen that not a single elephant makes an attempt to break free. The trainer explained: „When the elephants are very young, we use the same size rope to tie them, and at that time it is enough to hold them. Gradually they grow up, get stronger, nevertheless, they never try to get away, as they believe that the rope will still hold them.
The man was stunned. These strong animals could break free anytime, but they did not, because they believed that this is impossible. Sometimes people act like elephants when they give up after the first failure. Remember, those failures are part of learning. If we want to succeed, we should never give up, but try and try again.download
