I Can Do It

Good Morning Readers,

Its just few days left for the first shift of IBPS PO Prelims to start. The time is ticking and whatever time you are left it, just make sure that you don't waste even a single second. Whatever you have learnt till now, is sufficient. Don't have a second thought. Just go for it.

Today we have brought another story, which you all have listened to. But we human have a tendency to forget things as time passes. Just read the story and then we will discuss the bigger aspect as per your exam.

Once there was a man who was passing by the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were. Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

Sometimes the chain that prevent us from being free are more mental than physical

The gist of the story is: "Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life." This story is similar to the preparation that we are doing. Let's take an example where a student is afraid to attempt English section. But why? Is there any need to afraid? It is just the psychology of the student that keep him poking with the fact that he is weak in English. But try to break that Mental Boundation that you carry with yourself. Then you will realize the real potential of yours. What if you are getting failed everytime, you will get through one day. Yesterday we saw many students commenting their marks in ST and they have scored less. But it doesn't mean that he/she is going to fail. But if they wouldnot have given the practice tests, then they would have. It doesn't matter how many times you failed, what matters is how many times you learnt the right lesson from your failure.

All The Best
