The 10 Best Inspirational Short Stories

10. The Elephant Rope (Belief)

The Elephant Rope (Inspirational Short Stories)

Written by Dan Western

A gentleman was walking through an elephant camp, and he spotted that the elephants weren’t being kept in cages or held by the use of chains. All that was holding them back from escaping the camp, was a small piece of rope tied to one of their legs.

As the man gazed upon the elephants, he was completely confused as to why the elephants didn’t just use their strength to break the rope and escape the camp. They could easily have done so, but instead they didn’t try to at all.

Curious and wanting to know the answer, he asked a trainer nearby why the elephants were just standing there and never tried to escape.

The trainer replied;

“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 only reason that the elephants weren’t breaking free and escaping from the camp was because over time they adopted the belief that it just wasn’t possible.

Moral of the story: No matter how much the world tries to hold you back, always continue with the belief that what you want to achieve is possible. Believing you can become successful is the most important step in actually achieving it.

Working From Home Makes You Happier and ‘Massively’ More Productive, According to Science

CREDIT: Matthew Henry via StockSnap

Working from home has got a bad rap. Many people seem to think it’s a way to avoid hard work by getting out from under management’s watchful eyes. Indeed, few pundits seemed to object when Yahoo, IBM, and Aetna rolled back their work-from-home policies.

Indeed, working from home seems like heresy if believe in the “collaborative, innovative workplace” idea, or (as I call it) the “let’s-force-everyone-to-work-in-an-office-that-looks-like-a-hotel-lobby-from-outer-space” management fad.

Well, the Open-Plan Office Nazis have it all wrong, according to Stanford Professor of Economics Nicholas Bloom. (Kudos to Qz.com for calling my attention to Bloom’s incredibly entertaining TED Talk.)

In his TED Talk, Bloom explains that work-from-home is potentially as powerful and innovative as the driverless car. And he’s dead serious.

As evidence, Bloom cites a Singapore company where half of the staff worked from home for four days a week while the other half came into the office five days a week.

The two-year study revealed that the employees who worked from home had a “massive, massive” (Bloom’s words) increase in productivity–almost equivalent to an additional workday–primarily because of fewer distractions and fewer pointless conversations.

The work-from-home employees also tended to remain in their jobs longer, thereby decreasing employee turnover, which (of course) drains management productivity and results in an expensive loss of skills and connections when an employee quits.

Finally, the work-from-home employees were happier and therefore healthier, thereby reducing sick days and absenteeism (as well as people coming into work with contagious colds and flu), all of which decreased the company’s overall health care expenses.

The experiment was so successful that the company instituted work-from-home throughout the company, which also (as a side benefit) allowed the company to grow without adding expensive office space.

These results echo a recent Gallup study showing that employees who work from home three to four days a week are far more likely (41 percent versus 30 percent) to “feel engaged” and far less likely (48 percent versus 55 percent) to feel “not engaged” than people who report to the office each day.

So there you have it. Companies that are forcing employees to come into their glitzy but noisy and distracting open-plan offices would be much better off if they instead let their employees work from home most of the time.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO ROW A BOAT?

I used to do it; it is quite a memorable task. However what I did was dangerous which I must say only added to the thrill of entire ordeal. The village that I lived in when I was young was encountered a flood once in every year and I used to row boats with friends there whenever we got the chance, we could not refuse a perfectly good chance. My parent oblivious to what I was doing. Naturally, it was easy to row when the water is still. But it was hard when the water is moving against us. Sometimes we couldn’t reach our destination and landed somewhere else. STILL WE WERE SATISFIED WITH JUST THE EXPERIENCE

Why am I telling you this?

Because I know that you are a person who interested in business. Starting a business is similar to starting to row a boat. The boat does not move forward just because you are in the boat. You have to row it. As I said, it is easy to row when the water is still and difficult when the water is rough. Then you have to row harder to reach your destination.

You cannot be a successful businessman just because you started a business. If you want to go for your destination, you have to work hard. There are plenty of opportunities around the world if someone wants to try and succeed. But it is difficult to tell which fruit tastes better before you try them.

That’s why I am writing to you again. I have tried many online business systems in the past and spent money on them because I wanted to earn more money fast. But I just lost money on advertising and didn’t make any overall profit. If you try to go out there and try all the different online marketing companies, you would end up in the same situation.

SFI is different. It doesn’t ask you to spend a lot of money on it. There are numerous amount of training provided free for you. So get on board and start learning them. Once you begin your training and learn how to do free online marketing, you will definitely like it. It will not earn you a fortune overnight. But you will build up your knowledge and learn marketing strategies.

You can advance from there. You can perfect and you can plan the right way TO BUILD YOUR FORTUNE.

WHY ME?

WHY ME?

 

 

Another Monday morning. The sky is bright, but the autumn wind is chilly. Allways in a rush because I have to get to work. Going to work, coming back home, eat and sleep. No free time because I work long hours. The only spare time I have is on next Sunday but that gets consumed by chores and other responsibilities. This same cycle has repeated itself for years. I have tried to change it many times but failed every time. I started asking myself, WHY ME?

Sound familiar… if so keep on reading…

 

Day by day, the rich people get richer and poor people get worse off. The top 1% of the world controls 96% of the world’s wealth. More and more people struggle to pay the bills and have a decent lifestyle. It is because your earning are limited in a with your 9 to 5 job and yet you are forced to live with it. This doesn’t have to be that way, you have right to earn as much as you can. But how do you do that? Well, there are people earning money without big effort and we are going to show you their secret.

With your weekly job, you work as much as you can, of course, you get paid for that. But someone else gets the profit of it. So what are the options you have ?.

  1. Work for yourself.

Be a self-employed person or start your own business. Then again, what can I do myself? I don’t have the knowledge to produce anything. Will someone need my service? How can I find them? There are of questions that cause confusion and doubt. But if you want to succeed, you must find answers and there are a select few that can help you avoid all this hassle.

  1. There is another option. Affiliate Marketing.  

Where you don’t need to have a product or service to sell. You can promote existing market or system and find buyers and guide them to the supplier or service provider.

I don’t understand WHY?

Hi friends,

It’s me, Sanath again,

I had a telephone conversation with a lady yesterday who had contacted me to know about internet marketing ( I have been guiding her for last 20 days). She didn’t have any knowledge about internet marketing but enthusiastic in learning about it. I have been explaining her step by step what internet marketing is and how it works. She had a lot of questions to ask. I’ll show you some of them.

  1. Can we earn money online?

My answer – Of course we can. Millions of people are doing it right now.

 

  1. What do we have to do to earn money online? Do we need sales experience?

My answer – It depends. You can sell products or services online, you can invest online, or you can be an affiliate of an on-going business and earn commissions and many other ways to earn money. You don’t need sales experience for that. There are people and programmes to help you. But you need to know what you want to do and how you like to do it. The Internet itself will help you to find answers to your questions. One more thing. You need to know what questions to ask. That says again, you MUST know what you are trying to do A to Z. If someone has experience, that definitely be an added advantage.

 

  1. If I don’t know what to do?

 

My answer – That’s why I am talking to you right now. You know me for over 5 years. It is you to decide whether you can trust me to teach you.

 

  1. I can trust you. But these things are very complicated. I don’t have time to learn all those things……….

So my friends. What do you think? Do you have the same problems?

Let me tell you something, To be honest with you I have tried every possible way to find the solutions to my money problems. I worked and worked none stop and had two jobs, still, I was not able to earn enough money to pay my bills. I couldn’t work more because there is a limit which allowed me to work only 7 days a week. I did not have time to spend with my family and friends. I was suffering a lot financially, physically, emotionally and more importantly socially. I knew there had to be something better than getting up at 6 AM every morning, working my butt off, and being dissatisfied with the way my life was going. After years of service,

I started looking for options. I heard about internet marketing from a friend who was doing it successfully and searched about it. I was working minimum 84 hours a week at that time. But I managed to find a couple of hours after work and sometimes in my lunch hour to learn about internet marketing. It took me over four months to get an idea of WHAT SHOULD I DO. And I didn’t stop there. I applied what I learned. Well! I am a happy man now.

This is what I don’t understand. People spend eight hours or more with their regular job a day. No matter whether they like it or not. No matter how tedious the job is. No matter how stressful the job is. And no matter what they miss in their life. They keep on working for years and years. They work for others, making profits for others, selling their valuable time and get a regular paycheque whether it was enough or not to pay their bills. AND DON’T HAVE JUST TWO HOURS A DAY FOR THREE MONTHS TO IMPROVE THEIR LIFE FOREVER.

All I ask you is to be reasonable to yourself. Give time for yourself. Internet marketing is a good thing and I know it. With the extraordinary commitment of people like STONE EVANS, You will never be alone. He has given everything you need to be a successful internet marketer soon. Please have a look in Plug-In Profit website.

I appreciate your comments about what I think.

Talk to you soon

Hello world!

Hi, it’s Sanath and this is my new website. Stay tuned… I’ll have great things to share!

For starters, here’s an article I think you’ll enjoy…

It’s called: “Make the Leap to Home Business Success

Make the Leap to Home Business Success

If you are going to build a successful home business, you need 3 “intangibles.” These are things that must come from WITHIN you.

===> Intangible 1 <===

First, you must have a strong WHY.

Why must you make a home business work? What’s driving you? What is it that you CAN’T have in your life anymore and/or what is it that you absolutely MUST HAVE now?

For me, I couldn’t stand working 12+ hours a day anymore and missing the experience of my children growing up. I also absolutely HAD TO HAVE the freedom of being able to control my life and finances through a little box that I could carry with me anywhere in the world and not be tied to anyone’s time pressures or demands but my own. That was my carrot and my stick. I felt a great pain deep in my gut of missing out on my children’s lives and the incredible freedom that succeeding in this business would provide for me. I found my why. You MUST find yours.

===> Intangible 2 <===

You must BELIEVE that it is possible.

If you don’t believe that it’s POSSIBLE for you to succeed in a home business or make your living on the Internet, you won’t. It’s that simple.

For me, figuring out that it was possible was just a matter of realizing that many other people were ALREADY making great money with a home business online. If they could do it, I could too. It would just be a matter of figuring out what those people were doing and then adapting it to my situation.

There is no shortage of undeniable PROOF that people (millions of them) are making money online in many different ways. Just get online and do some research and you’ll find countless testimonials and stories of REAL PEOPLE making real money on the Internet. Or head to your local bookstore and you’ll find the same documented evidence of this fact. Truth is, it’s getting easier and easier to start and succeed in a home based business. This is primarily because of the Internet and affiliate marketing.

I’ve always said that “affiliate marketing” is the job of the future. In the “old” days, you had to go to a potential employer, apply for the position and hope for the best. Now you can simply go to any company you want, fill out their affiliate application and start work immediately. Affiliates are the new working class. Believe me, making money with affiliate programs or making your living on the Internet is WAY MORE than possible. It is pretty much (or will be soon enough) unavoidable now. Affiliate marketing is the “job” of the future that’s here TODAY.

===> Intangible 3 <===

You must be willing to MAKE THE LEAP.

Ready, FIRE, then aim… This is the operating philosophy you MUST adopt to succeed with an Internet home business.

That’s backwards for most people who like to aim before they fire. The fact is the Internet is a moving target… The only thing constant about it is change. You need to stop analyzing the game and simply jump into it. You can’t learn from the outside… You have to be IN THE RING to truly understand it.

The lesson here is that you will never really be READY to start a home based business. You simply have to start one. This is what I call “Making the Leap.”

The good news is that the cost of failure on the Internet is very small. In the “brick and mortar” world you need to evaluate things very carefully before you decide to open up a business. It’s almost always necessary to invest thousands of dollars to get an offline business off the ground. However, on the Internet you can often start a successful business for less than $100. In fact, Plug-In Profit Site is a really good example of this.

You simply need get IN THE GAME… Each moment that you stay “out there,” you’re wasting valuable time that you could be learning and skills necessary to become a successful affiliate marketer. In fact, if you’re not in the game yet, you’re ALREADY behind the times. Come on… You can do it! Make the leap to becoming a successful home based business owner today!

About the author: Stone Evans was a washed up restaurant worker desperately searching for a way to save his family when he discovered the internet and affiliate marketing… 24 months later he finally cracked the code and started earning over $10,000 per month. Now the same system that saved him is available to you here >>
