小编摘要:精神上的枷锁比肉体上的束缚更加可怕。

Most people are like the circus elephant. Have you ever seen an elephant in an indoor arena tied to a little wooden stake? That huge creature can pick up two thousand pounds with its trunk, yet it calmly stays tied. Why?

When that elephant was just a baby, and not very strong, it was tied by a huge chain to an iron stake that could not be moved. Regardless of how hard it tried, it could not break the chain and run free. After a while it just gave up. Now, even though it is strong, it never attempts to break free. The “imprint” is permanent. “I can't! I can't!” it says.

There are millions of people who behave like this circus creature. They have been tied and told “You'll never make it,” so many times they finally call it quits. They may have dreams, but the “imprinting” keeps pulling them back.
