The Elephant and The Rope
Your attempt may fail, but never fail to make an attempt.This is how young elephants are trained:when they are very young and small the trainer uses a 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. These powerful animals can at any time break free from their bonds but because they believe they can't, they are stuck right where they are.
