Once upon a time there 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….
No one in 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.”
“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 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 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!!!!
You see, when you have a goal to attain in front of you, your eyes are set on it. In your mind, that’s the ultimate you want. You focus on it and go for it. Why bother about what others say? Is it that important? No right? You live your life, you fight for what you want. Others don’t matter. Selective hearing. Hear what helps you to get to your goal, not what will make you falter. There are always people who will help you, people who will stall you, and people who would do nothing to you. Choose the type of people you want to associate yourself with. May you attain your goal 🙂
