Once upon a time, a dog approached an elephant to get into a child-bearing competition.

In 3 months the dog gave birth to 6 puppies. In the next 3 months the dog gave birth to yet another set of puppies.

The elephant finally gave birth after 20 months by which time the dog had given birth to over 30 puppies and was mocking the elephant into believing that it had won the competition.

The elephant had a few words for the dog when the baby elephant came out after 20 months.

"I can see you had fooled yourself into believing that you had won the competition.

I think you can appreciate now that:

1. I don't give birth to puppies

2. When I do give birth, the calf will be ready to face the world on its own

3. The combined weight of your 36 puppies is less than a fifth of my calf's weight

4. The moment my calf steps into this earth it makes an immediate great impact as if no dog was ever born."

I thought that was amazing.

I have observed something under the sun. The fastest runner doesn't always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn't always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those that are educated don't always lead successful lives. It is all decided by being in the right place at the right time.'

Don't let anybody in this life chide you into believing that you are a failure, beaten flat out and you have already lost the battle of success.

I want you to think like an elephant. Don't envy other people's success. For as long as you are in the right place, your chance is coming and by the signs of time it wont be long.

You are not that small to give birth to puppies. Only your one achievement will surpass several combined achievements.

You are guaranteed to make it in this life. Maintain your faith in God even when it looks like its all over for you.
Looks are good but the word remains forever.

When its your time,God will correct 10yrs of mistakes with 1 event.

Patience is a virtue, so don't give up!
