The Deaf Frog

A story was told in the land of frogs. A competition was organised and the prize will go to the frog who gets to the top of an electric pole.

”Frogs can’t climb. How can this be? It’s impossible”, many frogs argued amongst themselves.

When the whistle was blown, the race to the pole began. At the end of the day a little frog was sighted up the pole. When he was brought down to receive his award, he was asked how he did it. He simply looked at them. The questioned continued but he couldn’t talk. He was deaf!

Lesson: Ignore the naysayers. To get to where you want to be you must turn deaf ears to what people say. Also, accept the role naysayers play in your life. Most times, they are your ladder to greatness.
