We all have come across or in future, will come across a situation where life seems to take us nowhere. It seems to be stagnant, nothing seems to be
moving and if at all anything is moving, it does not move your way. There seems to be no opportunities for yourself and meaning of your existence appears to be meaningless. While everybody is progressing, there is no forward movement in your life.
This is the time, when mettle of one’s personality is really tested. This is where all the qualities that you list in your Resumes for job opportunities are really tested. Whether you have all the qualities or not, the real person never says die. He keeps on fighting, he keeps on struggling with all the faith in his abilities and a little hope that things will get better. He holds the faith that submission to fate will bring him no good.
Then you will experience, or you might have experienced, after you survived the worst a small thing rolls into your favor. This is just the initiation, after that small thing you feel everything has started moving as per your will. Yes, this is true. With all your positive energies you turn the universe around you positive. The last thing is, do not waste this time. You can achieve all the things that you aspire during this period of time. But remember good time will not last forever just as your bad time did not. So make best use of the good time and make better use of Bad Times.
The above glimpse of the life can be best summarized by the story of Three frogs.
Yes, the story of three frogs start when three young frogs playing with each suddenly fell into a pot of milk accidently left open at a farmer’s house. The pot was only half filled and the walls of the pot were too high for the frogs to jump out. With the passage of time as the night became dark, the milk started to become freezing cold. And three frogs started shivering with cold. The first frog who was bravest of all suggested that they should start swimming along the walls of the pot as that will keep their bodies warm. The third frog, which was weakest of all submitted right away saying “This is our destiny and we will die tonight” and refused to swim.
But the second frog who had little bit of courage and who got motivated by first frog’s wordings decided to swim. But as the night progressed and milk became colder, the third frog died of cold and two frogs that were swimming started to fatigue. When our bodies are fatigued, it is our mental strength that keeps us moving.
The second frog, which otherwise was equally strong and equally brave as the first frog lacked the mental strength. He said to the first frog “It is of no use, the third frog was right, we should submit to destiny” and he stopped swimming. But the first frog said “Don’t Give up, my friend. Please continue swimming”. But the second frog did not listen to him and submitted, within a matter of time he too died of cold. But the first frog was determined to live; he continued swimming along the walls.
With all this circular movement, the churning of milk had been taking place. And as the first frog continued swimming, with passage of time a chunk of butter was formed in the milk. Surely, the frog did not know this scientific process but he had one thing in mind, “Don’t Give Up”. The chunk of butter, though very small, was product of his determination and firm belief. It gave him the platform upon which he could sit upon and rest without the fear of drowning. He sat on the butter, waiting for the sun to rise and arrival of opportunity to escape. The farmer came in the morning and saw the pot open and with three frogs in it immediately spilled the milk and first frog that was still alive could feel its feet on ground now. He leapt into the nearby fields with leaps higher than ever.
