Um conto interessante em inglÍs sobre pulgas - Flea trainers have observed a predictable and strange habit of fleas while training them.

Fleas are trained by putting them in a cardboard box with a top on it.

The fleas will jump up and hit the top of the cardboard box over and over and over again.

As you watch them jump and hit the lid, something very interesting becomes obvious. The fleas continue to jump, but they are no longer jumping high enough to hit the top. Apparently, getting a continual headache forces them to limit the height of their jump to just below the top

However, when you take off the lid, the fleas continue to jump, but they will not jump out of the box. They wonít jump out because they canít jump out. Why? The reason is simple. They have conditioned themselves to jump just so high. Once they have conditioned themselves to jump just so high, thatís all they can do!

Many times, people do the same thing. They restrict themselves and never reach their potential. Just like the fleas, they fail to jump higher, thinking they are doing all they can do.

So if you think you may be performing below your potential, try to push that litle bit more and see what happens. It will be easy. Then try a little more, and so on. Before you know it, you will have left the box far behind and will be leaping toward the stars.
