Frog Jumping Contest
Categories: Financial Intelligence
It was a frog jumping competition. The winning frog was the one who was first to get to the top of a 100 floors sky scrapper. Participation was by choice.
Many frogs haven watched previous competitions opted not to compete, but merely to watch. The problem was, once cross floor 20, falling was sure death!
A few brave frogs took to the challenge, but were constantly discouraged by the shouts of those whose only experience was in watching others fail. “Take it easy, don’t cross that floor, you have tried enough, slow down, don’t be so extreme, you are a woman, think of your family, look behind” were the typical cries. One by one, a few frogs stopped and some fell to their deaths. One frog however was consistent, faced forward and was unmoved by discouragement. Of course, it won!
The barrage of discouragement was replaced by songs of adulation! Everyone eager to hear the secret of the frog’s success.
Alas, they realised, the frog was deaf!
1. Be deaf to discouragement from people whose experience is of others.
2. Be sure that those who criticise you today, will praise you tomorrow. Human beings are fickle.
3. Some won’t do, and they won’t let others do, don’t make clothes from a naked man!
If it blessed you, share with others.
