Be deaf to Negative Thoughts-If you Aim high

To keep at the top of your game you have to keep a clear head. You can’t afford to fill up on negative thoughts. The world’s overflowing’ with it and the only way to be a winner is to be deaf to negative thoughts. Lets understand this with a short story.

Story of Deaf Frog

Many frogs lived in a pond. Just in the middle of that pond, a big iron pole was installed by the king there. One day the pond frogs decided that “why not race to climb this pole”, whoever climbs on this pole will be considered the winner of the competition.

Race day fixed. A few days later, race day arrived. Several frogs gathered there to participate in the competition, many frogs from nearby ponds also came to participate in the race, and many frogs also gathered there to watch the competition. The race started, there was noise all around. Everyone looking at that iron pillar said, “Oh, it is impossible to climb it” “No one will be able to do it”. “This pillar cannot be climbed”.

No one would ever be able to complete this race, and it was happening that, whoever tried to climb the  pole, it would go up and fall down due to the pole being smooth and very high. Even after repeated attempts, no one was able to reach the pole above. By now many frogs had given up, and many frogs continued their efforts even after falling. Along with this, the frogs that still came to watch the race were shouting loudly “Oh this can’t be”.

“It is impossible” “No one can climb on such a high pole.”  Hearing this again and again, many frogs gave up and they also stopped trying. And now they also started supporting those frogs who shouted loudly. But a small frog from them reached the pillar due to continuous effort, although he too fell several times, got up, tried and then he reached the pole successfully.

And was declared the winner of the race. Seeing him the winner, the frog asked the reason for his success, how did you do this impossible task, it was impossible, how to get success here, please tell us also. Then came a frog’s voice from behind “Hey what do you ask him he is deaf.”

Nevertheless, the frogs took  the help of other  frog to find out the cause of success.The winning frog said that I am deaf. I don’t hear, but when you people were screaming loudly, I felt like you were saying to me ” You can do this, this is possible for you”. These words have given me success.


 So friends, this was a frog story, but this story is very similar to our life too, because we hear from outside the world who always tells us that “you can’t do this, can’t succeed,  etc., because we have the ability to achieve success and we can also achieve it, but by coming to others, we are missed by achieving our goal, due to which we live an average life. Therefore, from today on wards, we should be blind and deaf to all the scenes and people who distract us from our goal. Nothing can stop you from getting your destination

Your above story reminded me the Esops” Storeis read in my childhood. And the stories in Pancha Tantra.
I would like to add that one should also ignore own mind thinking negative while deciding on doing some thing. Good post ! Thanks.

Love this post and the story of the frog that really put things into perspective. Negative thoughts are no joke! They can really break a person but we have to be consistent in challenging ourselves to ditch those thoughts every time they come up! Thanks for sharing
