I popped over to Amazon today to check on any new reviews and was thrilled to find this one... I'm not acqauinted with this reviewer, but she does reviews for Readers Views...they have over 4100 reviews posted on Amazon as of today, and use several reviewers. This particular woman is a PhD, and from looking at her other reviews, very well read. Here's what she had to say...

Once Upon A Time...
Once upon a time there was a bunch
of tiny frogs.... who arranged a
The goal was to reach the top of a
very 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 the crowd really believed that the tiny 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."
"Not a chance that they will succeed.
The tower is too high!"
The tiny frogs began collapsing. 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....
This one wouldn't give up!
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 naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it? A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal?
It turned out....That the winner was DEAF!!!!
The wisdom of this story is: Never listen to other people's
tendencies to be negative or pessimistic....because 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. (There's life and death in the power of the tongue - Proverbs 18:21.)
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 cannot fulfill your dreams!
Always think: God and I can do this!
Pass this message on to
"tiny frogs" you care about.
Give them some motivation!!!
