The frog and the TV tower!

It was another noisy Thursday in frog world.
A group of young frogs were chatting, discussing the latest news. As they looked at the nearby TV tower, the city' tallest structure, they thought how wonderful it would be to be able to climb on top of it, and go where no frog had ever been. "The wind, the view &hellip oh, to be on top of the tower!"said one of the frogs, and the others croaked in agreement.

They decided that the following Sunday, they would all climb to the top of the tower. On the appointed day, several frogs gathered to watch the group of young frogs try and do the impossible. As the frogs lined up for the climb, you could hear the shouts from the crowd. "Don't do it, it' too dangerous!"

"No one's done it before, what makes you think you can do it?'

Some of the young frogs heeded the warnings, and ped out before the climb started. The rest set off nevertheless, and as some tiny frogs slipped and fell, you could hear the shouts grow louder. "You can't do it!" "The tower is way too high!"

One by one, all the frogs gave up, except one little frog. That frog paid no heed to the exhortations, and kept climbing, higher and higher until finally he reached the top of the TV tower. The first frog ever to get there!

The frogs clapped and croaked in delight. When the little frog came down, the rest of them gathered around him.

"How did you manage it? What's the secret of your success?" they asked. The frog just looked on, and did not say a word. It turned out that he was deaf. And so while the hordes were shouting "It can't be done", he hadn't heard a word. He thought they were egging him on, and mistook their shouts as words of encouragement! It's a good idea to lead your life like that frog.

As you go about chasing your goals, your dreams and your ambitions, disregard the people who tell you it can't be done.
