Once upon a time there was a
bunch of frogs who arranged a running competition.
The goal was to reach the top of a high tower.
A big crowd had gathered around
the tower to see the race and cheer on the
contestants. The race began. No one in crowd
really believed that the tiny frogs would
reach the top of the tower. The audience shout
out comments like:
"Oh, it is way too difficult!"
"They will never make it to the top."
"Not a chance that they
will succeed. The tower is too high!"
The frogs gave up, one by one.
The crowd continued to yell:
"It is too difficult!!!
No one will make it!"
More frogs got tired and gave
up. But one continued higher and higher and
higher. This one wouldn't give up! At the
end everyone else had given up, except for
the one tiny frog, he was the only one who
reached the top!
A contestant asked the tiny
frog how he had found the strength to succeed
and reach the top. They found out that the
tiny frog was deaf! Since he couldn't hear
the negative comments he kept going and won
