This is an old story passed on to me by a good friend way-back-when. I am bringing it back here because somebody needs to see this. Perhaps this will serve as a nudge for him to persevere in his quest for his precious dream. I hope he gets to see this.


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...

Honestly, 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" Or "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 that 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!!!

The wisdom of this story is:
Never listen to other people's tendencies to be negative or pessimistic....... because they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you -- the ones you have in your heart! 

Always think of the power words have... because everything you hear and read will affect your actions! Therefore: ALWAYS BE POSITIVE! And above all: Be DEAF when people tell you that you cannot fulfill your dreams.


God bless you, dear friend. Persevere in your quest. Even if it takes you the rest of your life. Knowing that you tried --- and won't give up --- is your gold!
