"It's Your Baby"
In a remote region of the Andes, two tribes were feuding. One tribe lived high in the mountains and the other in the lowlands.
One day the highlanders raided the village of the lowlands and kidnapped a baby. The next day the lowlander tribe assembled a rescue team to climb the mountain to find and retrieve the child. But the lowlanders did not know the trails and they were not skilled at mountain climbing. They struggled to make their way up the mountain, but after a half a day of climbing, they could not ascend anymore. Discouraged and disappointed, they packed their gear to return.
Suddenly, to their amazement, the rescue team saw the baby's mother coming down the mountain, holding her baby in her arms. Baffled, they asked her "How were you able to scale this steep mountain and rescue your child, when we were unable to do so?"
She answered, "It wasn't your baby".
If you want something enough, you will find a way to do it. If you are not very motivated, you will either not attempt to reach a goal, or if you do your efforts will be half-hearted and you will attain no measurable results. Motivation and intention are far more significant elements of success than circumstances.
