2. You Are As Brave As You Think:

Another best and short inspirational story for kids. Once there was a Mahout who had five elephants that he used to train for shows in a circus. He would tie them with a single light rope.

  • Since the elephants were huge in size it appeared that the elephants could break them anytime and run as they were very strong.
  • So one day a man who happened to notice that the rope was not strong enough to hold the 5 elephants asked the Mahout why the elephants were not trying to escape.
  • The Mahout replied that the elephants were conditioned to believe that they are weak and that they can break the rope and run so they never tried.

Moral: Do not limit yourself and belief in yourself. You must tell your children that if they think they are strong and brave then that is enough to face any difficult situation.
