Break Barriers

Are we like these fleas ..

More often I ask this question to myself. Whenever I come across any situation that makes me sulk down and question myself.

Am I doing just enough? Can I do anything better than what I do now? and many more questions like these haunt me day in day out. These are the questions I ask to myself. To know if I have set any limitations to me. Can I break this barrier around to do much better than what I do?

Let me just give an example about these fleas I had read about.

In one of the studies done with fleas. It was observed that a lot of fleas were all put in a single glass container with a lid on top. These fleas immediately tried to jump out of the container but always got hit by the lid. They did try for a while until they realized that there is no way they can get out of this container.

After a while, lid was opened and what you see would boggle your mind.

All the fleas just jumped out of the container and scattered away?

 

Not at all. Much to everyone’s surprise. This was not what happened. All the fleas remained where they were in the container even though the lid was completely opened.

Getting back to the questions that I asked to myself just above this illustration.

And this is the answer I give to myself to get over any situation I am in. Yes, surely I can get over any difficult situations I might be in now. All by faith and determination I can surely achieve the greater heights in my life by breaking every difficult situation I am in right now.

Yes. I strongly believe we should not be like these fleas and condition ourselves to the circumstances that we are in and just be with. We should always try to get over it and get to the greater heights in our life.

Just because of any mere situation or circumstances. We should never give up and live with just anything.

Will you agree to what I just said above? Are you like these fleas? or Can you break through these circumstances to see greater heights in your life?

Well, let me know what you think about this in the comments section below. Looking forward to hear your thoughts.

  1. I’ve read about this before, only it was rats trying to get out of a bucket of water. After so many attempts were blocked they would give up and drown. They called this “learned helplessness.” I agree with you, we should not give up πŸ™‚
