Always think bigThere is no price for dreaming Big or Small So, why not dream Big
And all your dreams will come trueIf you have the courage to pursue them
There once was a bunch of tiny frogs,... ... who arranged a running competition.The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.
A big crowd had gathered around the tower to seethe race and cheer on the contestants... The race began...
Honestly: No one in crowd really believed that thetiny frogs would reach the top of the tower. You heard statements such as: "Oh, WAY too difficult!! They will NEVER make it to the top." or: "Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!"
The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one...
... Except for those who in a fresh tempo were 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...
At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Except for the one tiny frog who after a big effort was the only one who reached the top! THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturallywanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?
Contestant asked the tiny frog how the one who succeeded had found the strength to reach the goal? It turned out...
It turned out... That the winner was DEAF!!!! The wisdom of this story is: Never listen to other peoples tendencies to be negative or pessimistic......cause they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you.... The ones you have in your heart!
Always think of the power words have.Because everything you hear and read will affect your actions! Therefore: ALWAYS be... POSITIVE!
And above all:Be DEAF when people tell YOU that YOU can not fulfil YOUR dreams! Always think: I CAN DO THIS!
Problems can either Make You or Break YouThe hammer that can break glass can shape steel Its up to you to be Glass or SteelHave the willpower of Steel and the vision of Glass
Last Fact … In this New Age EconomyIt is not the Strongest and the most Intelligent person survive, But the one who is responsive to “Changes” will survive.
Finally,Opportunities have knocked your door …
