It’s Time to Jump – I recently read a story titled ‘The Elephant Rope.’ A man was on a journey and came across some elephants that were tied to a tree with a small rope. It was pretty obvious that the elephants could easily walk away if they wanted to.
The man was confused by what he saw, that such large creatures could be held back by such a small rope. These elephants could at any time decide to break free but for some reason, they did not
The man decided to take a break and find out more about these elephants and the reason why they had their front legs tied to the tree with such a small rope and with no resistance from the elephants.
He saw a trainer and asked the reason why the elephants just stood there and made no attempt to leave that spot. The trainer went on to explain that at a very young age, they used the same small rope to tie the elephants and at that age the rope was enough to hold them down. As they grew older, they ended up believing they could not break free from the rope so they gave up and never tried again.
What is it you have been trying to break free from and now you think – hmmm that is life, it will never happen for me. I am not meant to be successful, or I meant not meant to have that job or that business. I am not meant to have the house of my dreams or drive that car. Have you given up?
We sometimes go through life thinking this is it, hanging on to a belief that we cannot do anything about. Its time to jump and get that rope off you. You are destined for great things. This is not the time to give up. This is the time to fight and break that rope – believe.
“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is there that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step” Les Brown.
It’s time to step into your greatness. Its time to change your mind, take inspired action and change your life.
Here are Insights from Steve Harvey – It’s time to Jump. Enjoy!
If you want to be successful you have to jump, there’s no way around it. If you’re safe, you’ll never soar.
You are never too old to reinvent yourself.
You simply cannot drive forward if you’re focused on what’s happening in the rear view mirror.
Do not ignore the passion that burns in you. Spend time to discover your gift.
The most successful people in this world recognise that taking chances to get what they want is much more productive than sitting around being too scared to take a shot.
What you want out of life is the thing you have to give the most of.
There’s no way you’re going to make it out of this world without spending some time down in the valley or in a dark place. But this isn’t the time to give up. This is the time to understand that God is trying to lead you to your purpose and to your gift. Use adversity to your advantage. Don’t let it stop you.
Life is going to get bad sometimes. You’ll make poor choices. You’ll fail. You’ll lose hope and maybe want to give up. If you jump, and trust that He will be there to help you soar, there is nothing you cannot achieve.
Your reality is yours. Stop wasting time looking at someone else’s reality while doing nothing about yours.
Don’t let your mind stop you.
I hope this article and video will inspire you to take inspired action. Sometimes you might not feel like taking action or doing anything that will take you a step closer to achieving your dreams. But remember … “When you think of quitting, remember why you started” – John di lemme
