VIDEO: This Passover, Break Free From Yourself | Yisroel Majeski

Do you know what they do to keep a circus elephant from running away?

They tie a metal chain onto a collar around the mighty elephant’s leg – and tie it to a small wooden peg that’s hammered into the ground. The 10-foot tall, 14,000 pound elephant could easily snap the chain, uproot the wooden peg, and escape to freedom. But it does not do that. In fact it does not even try. The world’s most powerful animal, which can uproot a tree as easily as you and I can break a toothpick, remains tied down by a small peg and a flimsy chain.

If you think about it, we are all like the circus elephant. We have our own chains and pegs. Our self-limiting beliefs that hold us back. But, we all have incredible power inside us. We are the Jewish people. We have it in us to take on the world.

On Passover, it’s time to ask the question: What’s holding you back? What’s your chain and wooden peg? Then tap into the holiday of Passover and break FREE…from YOURSELF!

    As a side note, the reason an elephant doesn’t attempt to get away is because it is taught as a baby that it cannot uproot the stake (as a weak youngster, it physically couldn’t). The elephant keeps that mentality in its brain as it grows, therefore not even trying to escape when it is older. Sad.

    oops, see the video explains that concept…lol. Should have watched it before commenting.
