Motivational Story of Frogs

A group of frogs was traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit.

All the other frogs gathered around the pit. When they saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead.

The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump out of the pit with all of their might.

The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead.

Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die.

He 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. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

Lessons to be learnt:

  1. There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day.

  • A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes to kill him or her.

  • Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your path. The power of words.... it is sometimes hard to understand that an encouraging word can go such a long way. Anyone can speak words that tend to rob another of the spirit to continue in difficult times.

    Special is the individual who will take the time to encourage another.

    Enjoy your life at every moment

    Once a fisherman was sitting near the seashore, under the shadow of a tree smoking his beedi. Suddenly a rich businessman passing by approached him and enquired as to why he was sitting under a tree smoking and not working. To this, the poor fisherman replied that he had caught enough fishes for the day.

    Hearing this the rich man got angry and said: Why don’t you catch more fishes instead of sitting in shadow wasting your time?

    Fisherman asked: What would I do by catching more fishes?

    Businessman: You could catch more fishes, sell them and earn more money, and buy a bigger boat.

    Fisherman: What would I do then?

    Businessman: You could go fishing in deep waters and catch even more fishes and earn even more money.

    Fisherman: What would I do then?

    Businessman: You could buy many boats and employ many people to work for you and earn even more money.

    Fisherman: What would I do then?

    Businessman: You could become a rich businessman like me.

    Fisherman: What would I do then?

    Businessman: You could then enjoy your life peacefully.

    Fisherman: Isn’t that what I am doing now?

    Moral – You don’t need to wait for tomorrow to be happy and enjoy your life. You don’t even need to be more rich, more powerful to enjoy life. LIFE is at this moment, enjoy it fully.

    As some great men have said, “My riches consist not in the extent of my possessions but in the fewness of my wants”.

    A glass of Milk, paid in Full

    One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.

    Instead of a meal, he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk.

    He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?”

    “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.”

    He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”

    As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

    Year’s later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.

    Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.

    Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.

    After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room.

    She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally, she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words:

    “Paid in full with one glass of milk.

    Signed, Dr. Howard Kelly.”

    Now, know where is the evil in Kaliyug?

    I loved the concept:

    One of the best message in the recent days I liked most;

    There are four yugas widely accepted in Hinduism. They are:
    1. Sat yug
    2. Treta yug (Ramayana)
    3. Dwapara yug (Mahabharata)
    4. Kal yug (Present)

    In Satya yug, the fight was between two worlds (Devalok & Asuralok). Asuralok being the evil, was a different WORLD.

    In Treta yug, the fight was between Rama and Ravana. Both rulers from two different COUNTRIES.

    In Dwapara yug, the fight was between Pandavas and Kauravas. Both good and evil from the SAME FAMILY.

    Kindly note how the evil is getting closer. For example, from a DIFFERENT WORLD to a DIFFERENT COUNTRY to the SAME FAMILY.

    Now, know where is the evil in Kaliyug?

    It is inside us. Both GOOD AND EVIL LIVE WITHIN. The battle is within us. Who will we give victory to, our inner goodness or the evil within?

    Think, identify and fight..!
    Good morning😊
