Aha Moments

They don’t happen often but they are memorable. Yesterday, a colleague shared with me how elephants are trained with a chain and peg as babies and it stays with them all of their life. They are chained to a steel peg as a baby so they cannot stray  as the chain causes pain and the steel peg is strong enough to hold them. As they age, they are still chained but with a wooden peg. They are strong enough to break the chain from the wooden peg but the fear from their youth prevents them from doing so. 

He applied this to me and my life. It had a profound impact. Now, let’s do something about that.
