Are you keeping yourself stuck?

There’s a really important story about how they train elephants. When an elephant is just a baby, they’ll go and they’ll get a really strong rope, tie that rope around the baby’s leg, and tie it to a stake in the ground. And in the beginning, that baby elephant will fight and fight and fight for its freedom until one day it just gives up. It knows that it’s just not strong enough to break free.

As that elephant grows in size and in power, they don’t need to get a stronger rope to keep that elephant tied down, they simply go down to the river, grab river reeds and tie those river reeds around the elephant’s leg.

The elephant has been trained that it can’t break free, so even though it’s much stronger than the river reads, it’s no longer fighting for its freedom.

Why is this important to us? 

We have what we would call "river reed thinking". These are ideas about ourselves that we've adopted about what we're capable of and what we deserve.

We have what we would call “river reed thinking”. Ideas about ourselves that we’ve adopted sometimes since we were little kids about what we’re capable of and what we deserve.

We’ve been trained to think that we are only capable of so much, and we forget that there’s a power breathing us that is greater than any condition, any circumstance, any situation. As you start to consider your goals, your dreams, the things that you want to accomplish in your life that you would love to accomplish in your life, you want to begin to notice what you’re noticing. Notice, where do I have “river reed thinking”? Where am I thinking that I’m not capable, I’m not strong enough, I don’t have what it takes to break free from my current circumstance, or to go on to do even greater things. And as we’re noticing that river reed thinking, where we’re forgetting that we are strong, we are more powerful, we are more capable, replacing those thoughts with the knowing that you are more powerful than you know.

Today’s topic on YouTube

Today I want to offer you an affirmation that you can work with to really remind yourself that you are more powerful than any condition, any circumstance, to overcome your river reed thinking ideas about yourself. Imagine walking through this world with the knowing that everything required is within you now. One of the belief systems that can be very powerful to manifest new results is to know that everything is always working out for me. Everything is always working out for me. As you’re pursuing your dreams, your goals, and you start to see setbacks, or maybe it’s not going exactly how you would like, adopt this belief that everything’s always working out for me. Know that you are capable of so much more than you ever thought. You’ve got more power within you.
