Friendly advice from gramps here To all who are suffering from unemployment. To all who are losing hope. Break out of the shackles of the past. Become self employed. It's ed Mindset!! As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. "Well," he 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." My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn't, they were stuck right where they were. Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before? So make an attempt to grow further.... Why shouldn't we try it again? "YOUR ATTEMPT MAY FAIL, BUT NEVER FAIL TO MAKE AN ATTEMPT."

I believe it is ed operant conditioning Also, there was a researcher that did tests on mice I beleive, where they were caged and not treated well. But when they opened the end of the cage they they wouldn't leave. This study was cited as an anology with women alcoholics. They often don't feel they can do any better. They found this to be true also with people who are being abused. They don't feel safe leaving for fear there is nothing better out there. Why do we as a society not better support the forwarding of our futures even if we have failrues so these mind sets don't happen? Are we so affected by "success" vs. failure...sort of like in some Asian cultures....where if you mess up you are shamed? Hmm...
