Story On Wisdom Quote – BOILING FROG
Once a scientist puts a frog in a container full of water and starts heating the water. As the temperature of the water begins to rise, the frog adjusts its body temperature accordingly. The Frog keeps adjusting its body temperature with the increasing temperature of the water. Just when the water is about to reach the boiling point, the frog can not adjust more. At this point the frog decides to jump. The Frog tries to jump, but is unable to do so, because it has lost all its strength by adjusting the body temperature. Eventually the frog dies. Next day that scientist puts another frog in water which was already boiling. The frog jumped immediately and nothing happened to him.
What made the first frog die? Was it the boiling water?
The frog died because he was not able to take decision for himself on right time.
If you wait until you are ready, you’ll be waiting for rest of your life. The best way to find direction is to trust your instincts instead of forcing yourself to do things because you think you “should.”
Who you are? Frog in cold water, waiting for it to boil and die? OR frog in boiling water that jumps immediately without losing any energy in adjustment?
