How they catch Monkeys

Monkey-hunters use a box with an opening at the top, big enough for the monkey to slide its hand in. 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 in, but too small for the fist to come out. Now the monkey has a choice, either to let go off the nuts and be free forever or hang on to the nuts and get caught. Guess what it picks every time? You guessed it. He hangs on to the nuts and get caught. We are no different from monkeys. We all hang on to some nuts that keep us from going forward in life. We keep rationalising by saying, "I cannot do this because" and whatever comes after "because" are the nuts that we are hanging on to which are holding us back.

Successful people don't rationalise. Two things determine if a person will be a success: reasons and results. Reasons don't count while results do. A good advice for failure is: Don't think, don't ask and don't listen. Just rationalise.
