Elephants are big. Massive walking creatures with a trunk. Long ago, I seen one in my local zoo. She was a female named Rani (Queen) I think and she entertained kids for decades. Elephants mainly are humble, polite and mind their own business most of the time. I’m saying so because I haven’t seen an elephant raging towards me in real life. But this can’t be true every time.
Why I said that? Take a look at this picture:
Poor guys!! They had no idea what they were heading for. All they saw was a 15000 lb creature in full anger, raging towards them. I’m pretty sure their brains must have stopped working by then. After all, that’s why they didn’t thought about escaping on the very bike they were riding. Instead they opted for running on their feet.
What I understood from this little angry-elephant-vs-out-of-their-mind-bikers scene is that whenever troubles hit you like a wave, you have to stay focus and use your mind to step out from it. Losing control over yourself and reacting hysterically will not solve the issue. Everyone faces troubles as big as elephants or even the size of a blue whale, the main thing to do is to remain calm and understand the situation. Reacting appropriately will not only solve the problem but will also gives you an edge for the future.
