In India, where baby elephants are trained, CONTROL is established while the elephant is very small. A chain is placed around the baby elephant’s leg and attached to a three foot iron stake which is driven into the ground.
Therefore for several days the baby elephant pulls and tugs and strains against the stake and the chain… but he is too small to dislodge it. Soon he is convinced, by this experience, that the three foot stake and chain have the POWER to bind him. He no longer attempts to pull free. TEN YEARS LATER, when the elephant is fully grown — weighing thousands of pounds— capable of uprooting trees — pushing or pulling a loaded railway car— he can still be held by a three foot stake! Yet, if that stake were as big around and planted as deep as a telephone pole, he could easily uproot it!
How does the stake and chain hold the elephant? CONTROL & CONDITIONING. Past experiences, imprints, and impressions that have gone into the subconscious mind will be accepted by the subconscious mind as truths. Those imprints, impressions, and past experiences at times control us.
Quite often, we will respond to past experiences in the same way as the elephant. Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, what we tell ourselves will go into the subconscious mind and become part of our belief system.
We respond to those beliefs whether they are right or wrong. Example: ‘I would love to start a business but what if I fail’ or ‘I have had no previous experience so I just won’t bother’.
What is the stake holding you back from financial security?
Think about it for a moment…what is your stake?
What is it that is holding you down and stopping you from gaining financial security from running your own business?
When we pull up the stake that binds us, we begin to see that we are capable of a lot more that we think.. Then, we will realize our full POWER and POTENTIAL and enjoy the FREEDOM of not being tied down by past experiences, imprints, impressions, feelings or false beliefs that someone put into your mind. The difference between elephants and humans is that we can think for ourselves which enables us to overcome the control.
If the above applies to you, I would like to encourage you to again consider the enormous benefits you can gain by starting your own recruitment agency.
