The Tiny Frogs

Once upon a time there were several tiny frogs.... who arranged a running competition. The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower. A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants....

The race began....

Truth : No one in the crowd really believed that th etiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.
You heard statements such as :

"Oh, WAY too difficult!!!"

"They will never make it to the top." or:
"Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!"

The tiny frogs began giving up, one by one.... There were some, who, with fresh effort, kept climbing higher and higher...

The crowd continued to yell, "It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!"

More tiny frogs got tired and gave up.... But ONE continued higher and higher and higher.... This one wouldn't give up!

At the end, everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Just one tiny frog, after a big effort, was the only one reached the top! THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?

A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal. It turned out.... That the winner was DEAF!!! He couldn't hear all the people telling him he couldn't succeed.

The wisdom of this story is :

Never listen to other people's tendencies to be negative or pessimistic.... because they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you -- the ones you have in your heat!

Always think of th epower words have. Because everything you hear and read will affect your actions!
