Monday morning inspiration # 2

The story about the tiny frogs....

There once was a bunch of tiny frogs who araanged 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 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 they will succeed, the tower is too high"... The tiny frogs began collapsing one by one... Except for those who in a fresh tempo who were climbing higher and higher...

The crownd continued to yell.. "It's 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... Except for the one tiny frog who after a big effort was the only one who reached the top...

Then all the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this ONE frog made it to the top?? A contestant asked the tiny frog how the one who had succeeded had found the strength to reach the goal..

It turned out....

That the winner was...

DEAF

The wisdom of the story is: Never listen to other people's tendencies to be negative or pessimistic... cause, they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you. The ones you have in your heart! Always think of the power the 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 fulfil your dreams.. Even the word impossible says I'm possible..
Stay good ! Stay positive :)

That was a good one dear.

I have been in that situation many times u know. I have learnt my lessons though. In fact, we need some good friends to motivate & support us and not discourage us in whatever we do.

Good that u shared this article. Keep rocking gal.
