Don’t listen to what people tell you, there will always be doubters. Work hard, believe in yourself, believe in your ability and just work hard.Arthur James
In this world, there will always be people who will not be supportive of you, who always talk you down and out from your dreams, who always doubt and make fun of you for trying to accomplish your vision.
Now, what we can do is not to listen to these people. Another thing, instead of allowing their words to affect our goal, we can use their words to fuel us even more into accomplishing our goals. Today, I would like to share a story about a tale of two frogs:-
A Tale of Two Frog
“A group of frogs were traveling through the forest when two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that there was no hope left for them.
However, the two frogs ignored their comrades and proceeded to try to jump out of the pit. However, despite their efforts, the group of frogs at the top of the pit were still saying that they should just give up as they’d never make it out.
Eventually, one of the frogs took heed of what the others were saying and he gave up, jumping even deeper to his death. The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the group of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and to just die.
He ignored them, and jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, ‘Did you not hear us?’
The frog explained to them that he was deaf, and that he thought they were encouraging him the entire time.”
In conclusion, what we can takeaway from the story is that if we listen to the doubters and the haters, our goals and dreams will eventually die in the pit as well. But if we give a ‘deaf ear’ to them, we will eventually accomplish what we want to do.
