Pin It

I am of course not talking about the blood group.

I would start with a story as usual.


There was once 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 gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants.

The race began …

No-one in the crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower. They shouted, “Oh, WAY too difficult!!! They will NEVER make it to the top” and “Not a chance. 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 on will make it

More tiny frogs got tired and started giving up…
But one continued higher and higher …
This one didn’t give up! And he reached to the top.

Everyone wanted to know how this frog managed such a great feat.

And to everyone’s surprise the little frog was deaf!!!


What have we learnt from it?

Ignore the pessimism of others. It is always good to be a good listener but be deaf when it comes to listen to disapproval. While listening to cynicism would not only seize away our dreams from us but would also take us on a path far away from the deserved one.

We should always analyze everything before acting. Everyone is a good starter but winner is the one who ends well too.

Always stay positive and be good to even those who are pulling your legs and trying to conquer your dedication with their pessimism.

B+ and you will be on the TOP.
