Have you heard the story of the Elephant and the rope? If not, this is the crux of it:
In a circus, elephants were tied to a small stick with a small rope. A passer-by saw this and was astonished that such big creatures were held by a small rope. They could break the rope anytime. The passer-by enquired about this and the circus master said that the elephants are tied with the rope since they are young. The small rope is enough to hold them when they are young. They grow up believing that they can’t break out of the rope. They are conditioned to believe that they can’t break out of what is holding them back. The same applies to us as well. We are held back by comments that others pass, by unwanted beliefs and self-doubts. Just believe that you can, and you are halfway there. That is an additional nudge to help you grow your online business.
