Two Frogs in the Milk

We want you to always do your best. In order to give your best effort, you must remain positive in your pursuit of your goals, no matter how remote they might seem. There will be setbacks, but with a positive mindset you can not only inspire yourself, but also others around you as well. Today’s story is about removing the word “quit” from your vocabulary.

This is the story of two frogs. One frog was always saw the bad side of things and the other was more optimistic. One day, while searching for food, they inadvertently jumped into a vat of milk. They couldn’t get out, as the sides were too slippery, so they were just swimming around.

The one frog said to the other frog, “Brother frog, there’s no use paddling any longer. We’re just going to drown, so we might as well give up.”

The positive frog replied, “Hold on brother, keep paddling. Somebody will get us out.” And they continued paddling for hours.

After a while, the negative frog said, “Brother frog, there’s no use. I’m becoming very tired now. I’m just going to stop paddling and drown. It’s Sunday and nobody’s working. We’re doomed. There’s no possible way out of here.”

But the other frog said, “Keep trying. Keep paddling. Something will happen, keep paddling.” Another couple of hours passed.

The negative frog said, “I can’t go on any longer. There’s no sense in doing it because we’re going to drown anyway. What’s the use?” And the frog stopped. He gave up. And he drowned in the milk.

But the hopeful frog kept on paddling. He kicked and squirmed and kicked and squirmed, until at last, all his churning about in the milk had turned the milk into a big block of butter. The butter was now solid enough for him to climb onto and get out of the Vat!

The Moral of The Story? “Never Give Up!
