Stories That Coach : Explore and Re-Imagine To Revive - Widen Your World


Here is a story that coaches , to share with you all.

As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held only by a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size 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.” The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they could not , they were stuck right where they were.  
Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging on to a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?  

Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.We must develop the wisdom to learn from failure as it throws greater opportunity to learn and unlearn something.

Gone are the days of one-size-fits-all-marketing based on generalities.Having burned its fingers in China,even Amazon - the world's largest online retailer is carrying a torch for India.

Organisations follow such wisdom ,are extraordinarily rare .With strong conviction and able leadership,such organisations have been able to reinvent themselves .What they are doing is a benchmark for the rest of the world   as they practiced Quality.They are able to do what they do because the organisation they have developed is listening to customers - both internal and external effectively,enriching the life of others and optimizing the perfection model.

We have the potential to lead the world,but what is pulling us down is the mindset we carry.Remember - A quality mindset can bring required change .We as a person should think quality and believe in self.We should strongly feel quality is our own business.

Widen your world by enlarging your thinking !!!!!
