Let me tell you a short story of two frogs, you might be heard of this story in your fable’s book during your childhood but it’s always necessary to keep remembering and refreshing your knowledge in sake of keeping it alive.
Once upon a time, two frogs fell into a deep pit. When the friends of the frogs saw how deep and dangerous the pit was, they started telling the two frogs that they were as good as dead. Both the frogs ignored the comments first and tried to come out by jumping up out of the pit with all their strength. The other frogs kept screaming them to stop, and they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs obeyed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.
The second frog continued trying to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs told him to stop facing the pain and just die quietly. After then, he jumped even harder and finally succeeded. When he came out, the other frogs said, “Did you hear us or not?” The frog told them that he was deaf. And he thought that they were encouraging him the entire time and motivating him to make it out.
Moral: There is a power of life and death in the words. An encouraging word to can lift them up someone and can help him make it through the day. It is sometimes hard to understand the power of words, that an encouraging and an inspiring word can travel such a long way.
Here are some inspiring lines that you can read every morning and before going to bed every night so that you can stop yourself listening the criticism and taking them as credits like the second frog.
