This is a spoken version of the article, 7 Powerful Yet Simple Metaphors that Will Change the Way You Think, by author Angel Chernoff.
The original article can be found here (https://www.marcandangel.com/2018/11/25/7-powerful-yet-simple-metaphors-that-will-change-the-way-you-think/).
Here is a brief excerpt:
If you think about it, we are all like elephants. We all have incredible power inside us. And we have our own chains and pegs—the self-limiting thoughts and beliefs that hold us back. Sometimes it’s a childhood experience or an old failure. Sometimes it’s something we were told when we were younger. The key thing to realize is this: we need to learn from the past, but also to be willing to change our assumptions—our perspective—about the way things are now. Life is not static. You can break free.
I record these articles because I'd like the ability to listen to them in audio format and deepen my own understanding.
