The ELEPHANT and the Banyan tree

This topic is about the elephant and the banyan tree.

I don't know if you guys know how they train the elephants, but in some countries, the way they train the elephant, when the elephant is small, they put a chain around the elephant's leg and then they put a chain, same chain, they attach that chain around the banyan tree. No banyan tree has really, really deep roots and it's a very, very strong tree, which basically means that the elephant can't pull it up. So when the elephant is small and it's being chained to that tree, of course it tries to run away.

So elephant starts pulling and pulling and pulling and pulling as much as it can with his leg until his leg gets so sore and bloody and painful that the elephant can't do it anymore. And it just gives up. And that's when they break the spirit of the elephant. The elephant just gives up trying to pull it off. The elephant just stops pulling anymore because it just too painful. And then it stops. And from then on, they can take that chain, put it with a little pin and put that pin in the ground. And the elephant doesn't even try to pull, even though you could easily go away with that, but because of the experience the elephant had when it was young, trying to pull off that banyan tree and getting all sore and bloody, it doesn't do it anymore. Its spirit is broken. It has given up its hope to ever be free. Now, why do I bring this up?

The reason why I bring this up because many people are like that elephant, their spirit has been broken. So there's a lot of people who've have had so many challenges in their life, they had so many setbacks, they had so many bad relationships, they had so many bad people cheat them or other ways harm them, etcetera, that they have lost hope that, one, they can succeed themselves, that they can have a better life, two, they have lost hope in other people and they think that everybody's out there to get them, that everybody's out there bad and cheating and things like that. And they have lost hope in the world itself.

They no longer even trying to make things better for themselves, they no longer even trying to strive for something or dream, because they just believe that dreams are just waste of time, goal setting is all a bunch of baloney, because it doesn't work anymore, the life is too hard, and the world is too bad and so on. So like the elephant and the banyan tree, those people, because they've had so many challenges, because you have so many setbacks, their spirit has been broken and even though they could very easily change the course of their life, they could very easily start making more money, they could very easily get into a great relationship, and so on and so on. They stopped even trying, because of so many setbacks in the past.

If you're one of those people, then you need to know that you can change it, you can do things about it, you can start making small adjustments, and your life can change very dramatically. And also, if you meet people like that because our business is a people business. So I can guarantee to you, you will come across people like that, either people who you can see they have a tremendous potential, but they themselves have lost the belief and they don't believe anymore, that they can succeed. And if that happens, you have to believe for both of you.

At the beginning, you will have to believe more than they believe in themselves; you will have to believe in them and tell it to them and show it to them say look, “I believe you can do this. I'm sure you're smart enough. I'm sure you're beautiful enough, I'm sure you ever seen enough to succeed in this business to succeed in achieving your dreams.” And if you say that enough to that person, it's not easy, but it is possible to break their cycle to break their mind-set and actually to get them to start believing in themselves again and get them to start doing something again.

That's my wish for you to go and change some lives. It's really fun when you meet somebody who has lost the belief in themselves and you inspire them and they start believing again and they start doing tremendously successful things. It is amazing to watch. So that's why we wish for you as well.
