One day the circus elephant little Johnny was practicing a balancing act on the top of a ball. He was confident that he can balance better than anybody else in his team. He used to get lot of applause on the tricks he was performing in the circus. He didn’t pay attention to what the trainer had instructed. A donkey was watching the elephant doing the tricks. So he wanted to turn his attention. He 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.
