Many people have no idea of what they can do because all they have been told is what they can't do. They don't know what they want because they don't
know what's available for them.
You were made to succeed. You were designed for accomplishment, engineered for success, and endowed with the seeds of greatness. You were created in HIS image.
There are people who will try to steal your dreams. They find fault like there is a reward in it.
🐸 LET ME TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT A FROG 🐸
Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs who arranged a running competition. 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... Honestly, no one in the crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower..
You heard them yelling:
"No way...it is 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 by one, except for those who in a fresh
tempo were climbing higher and higher. The crowd continued to yell, "It is
too hard...no one will make it! You might as will quit."
Many 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. But there was 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!
I shared that with you because so many times people can be negative or
pessimistic....they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from
you.... those things God has planted in your heart.
When people criticize or tell you that it can't be done....TURN A DEAF EAR
WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
GO FOR IT MY FRIEND.
YOU WILL SUCCEED.
