Monkey-hunters use a box with an opening at the top, big enough for the monkey to slide its hand in.

Inside the box are bananas. The monkey grabs the banana and now its hand becomes a fist.

The monkey tries to get its hand out but the opening is big enough for the hand to slide in, but too small for the fist to come out.

He hangs on to the banana and gets caught. 😦

Successful people don’t rationalize.

Two things determine if a person will be a success: reasons and results.Reasons don’t count while results do…
