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.”

“Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is to 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!!! None will make it!”

“Oh! Wrong climbing!”

More tiny frogs got tired and gave up…

…But one continued higher & higher & 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 naturally, everyone wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?

A contestant asked how the one who succeeded had found the strength to reach the goal?

It turned out…

That the winner was deaf.

MORAL: Criticisms are not bad when constructive, but in cases where they only discourage us and slow us down, we must learn to ignore them. HOW? By realizing that no matter what we do, not everyone will be able to see the possibility or the good in it.

No matter how good you are, someone will always be against you. To balance it: no matter how bad you are, someone will always be for you too.

Most importantly, when your intentions are good and your efforts are tied to your passion, WHAT ELSE CAN STOP YOU?

Being deaf to negative criticisms is being too involve in the pursuits of your dream/passion that you find it hard to give up despite the obstacles and negative remarks thrown at you.

Have A Lovely Day!!
