When I was a kid I loved circuses, and what I liked most about circuses were animals. Also to me as to others, after I found out, the elephant called my attention. During the show, the huge beast displayed its size, weight and enormous strength ... but after its performance and until a while before returning to the stage, the elephant was held only by a chain that imprisoned one of its legs nailed to a small stake stuck in the ground. However, the stake was only a tiny piece of wood barely buried a few inches in the ground. And although the chain was thick and powerful, it seemed obvious to me that this animal capable of plucking a tree of rennet with its own force could easily tear the stake and flee. Elephant tale reflection The mystery is evident: What keeps it then? Why do not you run away? When I was 5 or 6 years old I still in the wisdom of the great. I then asked some teacher, some father, or some uncle about the mystery of the elephant. Some of them explained to me that the elephant did not escape because he was trained. Then I asked the obvious question: -If you are trained, why are you chained? I do not remember having received any coherent answer. Eventually I forgot the mystery of the elephant and the stake ... and only remembered it when I met others who had also asked the same question. Some years ago I discovered that luckily for me someone had been wise enough to find the answer: The circus elephant does not escape because it has been tied to a similar stake since very, very small. I closed my eyes and imagined the little newborn subject to the stake. I'm sure that at that moment the little elephant pushed, pulled, sweated, trying to let go. And despite all his efforts, he could not. The stake was certainly very strong for him. He would swear that he fell asleep exhausted, and that the next day he tried again, and also the other and the one who followed him ... #love#emprender#instagramles#envywear#instagram#cool#photooftheday#emprendiendo#amazing#smile#enprendimiento#emprendedor#look#travel#igers#picoftheday#food#instadaily#instafollow#comenta#girl#instagood#bestoftheday#instacool#envywearco#follow#beach#style#swag
Being around a confident woman
is like having a
massive injection of positivity
thrown into your day.
She has no time for
the Negative Nellies of the world
and removes them from her life.
She has this wonderful ability
to see the positive in any situation
and leaves you feeling inspired.
Sure she has her bad days
And she isn’t 100% positive
all the time,
because that’s just impossible.
But she strives to see
the positive in the world
and surrounds herself
with positive people & positive things.
A confident woman knows
that the first person
she needs to take care of is herself.
if she can’t take care of herself,
then she cannot take care
of anyone else.
She schedules in
regular self-care activities
– even if it means getting up
half an hour earlier
just so she can sit and drink
her coffee while it’s still hot.
Self-care is the backbone to success.
Use Positive Words:
The words we choose to use
are very important.
Rather than saying ‘don’t forget’,
say ‘please remember’ instead.
People are far more likely
to respond to positive words
than negative ones.
A confident woman
uses positive words
to build herself and others up.
She doesn’t have to put
other people down in order for her
to feel good about herself.
with a confident woman
will leave you feeling inspired.
