Are you that camel

  In northern China, camels are the main means of transportation for people to walk in the desert, and people often use them to carry things. During a long trek, a camel can carry more than a dozen adults. In the desert, every family raises several camels.
  Taming a camel is a lot of work. Once it becomes manic, a dozen adults may not be able to subdue it, but the herdsmen in the northern desert have a very simple way to tame it.
  Soon after the camel was born, the person who raised the camel cut a wooden stake wrapped with red thread deep on the ground, and tied the baby camel to it. These little camels struggled desperately at first, trying to pull the stake out of the ground. But what these little camels didn’t know was that the seemingly short and small wooden stake was driven very deep. Not to mention a small camel, even a dozen adult camels, there is no way to pull it out.
  After a few days, the exhausted little camel began to succumb to the stake and no longer tried to pull it up, and its range of activities began to be limited to the range of the rope. At this time, the little camel is still full of hostility to the people who raise it.
  The herdsmen who raised the camels were not in a hurry at all. They untied the red thread on the wooden stakes, grabbed the ropes that tied the small camels and kept shaking them. The little camel was angry. It didn’t believe that this short and small man could be stronger than itself. The little camel struggled desperately, trying to get out of the control of the herders. It tugged desperately, stirring up sand balls one after another, and the sand under its feet was kicked high. In the end, the little camel struggled until all four hooves were bleeding, and the herdsman who was pulling the rope was still very leisurely. The little camel began to give in a little.
  The next day, the herders changed a child. The wildness of the little camel was stimulated again. It didn’t believe that it would be controlled by a child, and started a new round of struggle, but it was still defeated.
  After five or six days of tossing like this, the little camel finally gave in. From that day on, the herdsman stuck a small wooden stick into the ground and tied the camel to it, but the camel never had the courage to break free. It doesn’t believe that it can break free, and its range of activities is limited to the range of the rope that holds it.
  Surrounding the small wooden stick, the little camel grew up day by day, and became stronger. That little wooden stick was nothing to it, but the camel still didn’t dare to leave it half a step away. It has been completely used to this kind of life led by a wooden stick.
  When these camels are used to the herdsmen using small wooden sticks to restrain themselves, such tragedies often happen: when an unexpected storm comes in the desert, the herdsmen often quickly stick a small wooden stick on the ground in order to prevent the camel from being lost. Tether one or even several camels to small sticks. When the herdsmen were swept away by the huge storm, the camels still stubbornly lay down around the small sticks for one or two days until they starved to death.
  In fact, rather than saying that these camels died of lack of food, it is better to say that they died of their own experience and habits. How stupid are these camels, and why aren’t we? Aren’t we also often bound by our own habits and experience, and do some stupid things?
