I love stories. I learn through stories. I understand better through stories. The story below is one of my all time favourite…STAY IN YOUR LANE. FOCUS ON YOU.
“An elephant and a dog became pregnant at the same time. Three months down the line the dog gave birth to six puppies. Six months later the dog was pregnant again and in nine months it gave birth to another dozen puppies. The pattern continued.
On the eighteenth month the dog approached the elephant questioning, “Are you sure that you are pregnant? We became pregnant on the same date and I have given birth three times to a dozen puppies and they have now grown to become big dogs, yet you are still pregnant. Whats going on?”
The elephant replied, “There is something I want you to understand. What I am carrying is not a puppy but an elephant. I only give birth to one in two years. When my baby hits the ground, the earth feels it. When my baby crosses the road, human beings stop and watch in admiration, what I carry draws attention. So what I’m carrying is mighty and great.”
Don’t lose faith when you see others achieving their success. Don’t be envious of others results. If you haven’t received your success, don’t despair. Say to yourself “My time is coming, and when it hits the surface of the earth, many shall yield in admiration.”
Remain patient and persistent. Trust your journey.
