There once was a bunch of 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...
Honestly...No one in the crowd really believed
that the tiny 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 collapsing. One by
one...Except for those, who in a fresh tempo,
were 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
At the end everyone else had given up climbing
the tower, except for the one tiny frog who,
after a big effort, was the only one who reached
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
strength to succeed and reach the goal. It
turned out...That the winner was DEAF!!!
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 heart!!!
Always think of the power words have. Because
everything you hear and read
will affect your actions!!!
Therefore: ALWAYS be...POSITIVE!!! And above
all: Be DEAF when people
tell YOU that you cannot fulfill your dreams!!!
Today in my in box I recieved a message that said
"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society"
Something to think about eh !
