The Frog that Refused to Listen
Some frogs arranged a climbing contest to the top of a very high tower. Lot of frogs gathered to see the race.
The race began. The crowd did not believe anyone would reach the top of the tower. They started shouting, “Oh, way too difficult!” “They will never make it to the top.” “The tower is too high.”
The frogs began falling down, one by one. The crowd continued to shout, “It is too difficult! No one will make it”! More frogs got tired and gave up. But one continued to climb and after a big effort reached the top!
All wanted to know how he managed to do it. It turned out that the winning frog was deaf! Until we are deaf to other people’s opinion about what is possible, we can never reach beyond the limits others set for us. Let us be deaf to those who keep telling us that it can’t be done.
