One day the circus elephant little Johnny was practicing a balancing act on a football. He was confident that he can balance better than anybody else in his team. He used to get lot of applause from the audience on the tricks he was performing in the circus. Lately, he didn’t pay attention to what the trainer had instructed. Why should an experienced elephant like him should listen to a silly trainer who repeatedly asking him to do the same thing again and again? He always thought.

A donkey was watching the elephant doing the tricks. With the wicked intention to grab his attention the donkey made a laughing sound. Hearing which Johnny got completely distracted. Suddenly he fell down from the ball and his leg fractured.

The doctor who attended Johnny said the fracture is not serious. He can do the tricks after a few weeks. Johnny learned a great lesson from that accident. Never get distracted while doing something important. From that day on wards he was listening to his trainer diligently.
