The Frog and The Tower
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 the crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower. You heard statements like:
“Oh, WAY too difficult!!”
“They’ll NEVER make it to the top.”
“Not a chance that they’ll 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 and just wouldn't give up! At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower; all except for the one tiny frog who, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!
All of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?
One contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal?
The little frog didn’t answer.
You see, he couldn’t hear the question. He was deaf…
