Former UFC Bantamweight Champion and also Flavor Republic Spice Company owner, TJ Dillashaw, has shared a recent photo on his official Instagram and told an interesting story to inspire his followers.

As you will read the story right below, TJ shared the story about and elephant and a rope. TJ stated that the elephants in this story are experiencing something called learned helplessness.

Here is the thing that is written on the photo:

“He wondered why the elephants didn’t break free from the rope…

…as the elephants were certainly strong enough to do so.”

Here is what TJ Dillashaw wrote on the caption of his latest post:

“I’m going to tell you a story … about an elephant and a rope. Stick with me, because it’s guaranteed to massively shift your life.

Ready?

When walking through an elephant camp, a man noticed that the elephants were only secured with a small rope that was tied around one ankle.

He wondered why the elephants didn’t break free from the rope, as the elephants were certainly strong enough to do so.

He asked one of the trainers why the elephants didn’t try to break free, and the trainer responded that it’s because they use the same size rope for baby elephants all the way up to adulthood.”

He continued:

“Because they’re too small when they’re babies to break free from the rope, they grow up being conditioned that the rope is stronger than they are. As adults, they think the rope can still hold them, so they don’t try to fight it.

The moral?

The elephants in this story are experiencing something called learned helplessness.

This occurs when someone (say, a child) has been conditioned to anticipate discomfort in some way, without having a way to avoid it or make it stop.

After enough conditioning, they will stop any attempts to avoid the pain, even if they see an easy opportunity to escape.

Like the elephants, we have to let go of our past limiting beliefs in order to make the breakthroughs that are required for our ultimate success.

Often, the only thing holding us back is a small rope of conditioning. Test that rope this week, and see if it’s really as strong as you’ve been conditioned to think it is.

Cheers to that next level.”
