I had a friend recently returned from Thailand shared a story with me. He was riding an elephant that when the ride ended he witnessed this large animal being chained up with the same small chain as were the baby elephants.
Being somewhat confused, my friend asked the trainer why this large and powerful animal just stood there in this small chain and made absolutely no attempt to get away. It was obvious that at any time this elephant could easily break away but for some reason, it did not.
The trainer replied that when the elephants are young and much smaller they use the same size chain that, at that age, is enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe this chain can still hold them, so they never try to break free.
My friend was amazed. These animals could actually at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they didn’t.
My question is, are you still chained to some belief that is potentially limiting your growth that you should have broken free from a long time ago? What beliefs, whether it be in your life or your organization are not serving you? Is maybe your team holding on to some beliefs that may not be serving them? Were some of these beliefs imposed on you, your team or your organization from the outside or by someone else?
It’s time to take a quick inventory of some of these potential limiting beliefs and break free to create a more powerful you, team and organization that you are truly capable of creating.
