Tiny Frogs

I wanted to share this great story with you, it has nothing to do with hair but a lot to do with life and mommyhood. So read on and enjoy!

TINY FROGS
Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs who arranged a running competiton. 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 frog contestants. And so the race began, but honestly:
No one in the crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower. The crowd made statements like:
"Oh way too difficult"
"They will never make it to the top"
or
"Not a chance they will ever make it to the top"
The tiny frogs began collapsing one by one. Except for those who in a still fresh tempo were climbing higher and higher...
The crowd began to yell at this point "It's too difficult! No one will make it!"
More tiny frogs collapsed, got tired, simply gave up...as if they began realizing the crowd was right and they wouldn't make it.
But there was ONE who cotinued higher and higher and higher...
This one wouldn't give up! The crowd and frogs who were dropping out were amazed at this one. Surely he would quit soon, right?
Close to the end all the other frogs had quit trying to climb the tower. Except for that one tiny frog who wouldn't give up...
After a big effort and one last charge, giving it his all, he FINALLY reached the top!!!
The spectators and all the rest of the tiny frogs wanted to know how did this one frog manage to do it?
How did that tiny frog find the strength to succeed and reach the goal?
It turned out...
That the determined frog and winner was DEAF!
Since he didn't hear the crowd he never bought into the idea that he couldn't do it! His mind was so focused on the goal it never occured to him that he could not do it!
Moral and wisdom of the story:
Never listen to other people's tendencies to be negative or pessimistic because they are the "dream stealers". They will take away your most wonderful dreams and wishes. Be true to the wonderful dreams and wishes you have in your heart!
Always think of the power words have (There's life and death in the power of the tongue - Proverbs 18:21)
Everything you hear, read and talk about will affect your actions and your outcome!
Therefore:
Always be positive. Fill your mind and your days with positive actions, affirmations and deeds. Don't get caught up in the negative buzz or gloom and doom around you. Remain the optimist and look for the silver lining (and be positive about) every situation and circumstance that comes your way.
Be like the winning frog and be DEAF when others tell you you can not fulfill your dreams! Keep focused on the goal and you won't hear the negativity going on around you.
You can do it!

This has really made me realise the trutth of that. People can say "don't listen to what bad others say" or something along that line, but you can't help but. When I next hear comments that would reach me too fail I'll think of that little frog. Thanks!
