The Competition - Sue Moll

"Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs…. who arranged a climbing competition. 
The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower. And so a big crowd gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on all the contestants. 
The race began…. 

But quite honestly no one in the crowd really believed that such tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower. They were saying  It’s far too difficult!!, they will never make it to the top,”and “Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!” 
The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one….Except for those who were a bit stronger and kept climbing higher and higher.. 
The crowd continued to yell, ”It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!” More tiny frogs got tired and gave up…. 
But one continued higher and higher and higher long after all of the others had given up and dropped back down to the bottom and he, after a big effort, actually made it to the top! 
All of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it. One contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach his goal! But he didn’t hear him, and he shouted the question again but he still didn’t hear, so he shouted at the top of his voice, which was really loud for such a tiny frog.  But he still couldn’t hear him, he was deaf! 
How much more could we do if we, like the frog turned a deaf ear to all those who say we can’t!"

We all at times say we can't do that! It is beyond me, too hard , too public, too complicated and so on. It is true some things are difficult to achieve and sometimes even though hard, we need to focus alone and managing it whatever. Then we will rejoice that we have achieved!
