Monkey-hunters use a box with an opening at the top, big enough for the monkey to slide its hand into. Inside the box are nuts. The monkey grabs the nuts and now its hand becomes a fist. The monkey tries to get its hand out but the opening is big enough for the hand to slide into, but too small for the fist to come out of. Now the monkey has a choice, either to let go off the nuts and be free forever or hang on to nuts and get caught. Guess what it picks every time? You guessed it, right. He hangs on to nuts and gets caught.
We are no different from monkeys. We all hang on to the nuts that keep us from going forward in life. We keep rationalizing by saying, “I cannot do this because……...” “ I would have finished my target, but because of……………” and whatever comes after “because” are nuts that we are hanging onto that are holding us back.
Successful people don’t rationalize. Good advice for failure is: Don’t think, don’t ask, and don’t listen. Just rationalize.

Do you want to become or stay monkey in cage...
