There is this story about these frogs. Naturally curious frogs…. There was a pale of milk they were playing around the edge. The two frogs fell into the pale. The other frogs came up and started laughing at them and making fun that they fell into the pale. Saying things like “you're not going to get out, ha ha ha…” laughing instead of helping them.
So both frogs start hopping, hopping trying to get out. But one frog couldn't hear that good. He was hard of hearing and the other frog could hear the other frogs. So they keep trying to get out of the pale because they knew they were going to drown. All of sudden the frog that could hear started listening to all the negative people at the top. The other frogs continued to laugh at them… ha ha ha ha and because he could hear them so dog gone well, he drowned.
The other frog couldn't hear that good so he kept on hoppin, just hoppin. He hopped so much that the milk turned into butter and it got hard and then he jumped out. When he hopped out the other frogs came up to him like “Man, listen man”. The frog says “huh”? Other frogs respond by saying “man, we were talking about you. Why didn't you drown”? Frog says “huh”? We were putting you down, talking about you. Frog responds and says “you were”? Yeah man! Frog: “Oh, I thought you were cheering me on! I didn't know. I thought I heard you say you can do it baby, come on you can make it man”.
See, that is what negative people are. You have to be a hard hearing frog because negative people are just cheering your butt on!
Be a selective listener like people who have valuable information to share. Listen to voices of value. Something of value. ~Jim Rohn
