One day, a bunch of frogs decided to have a race to see if anyone could get to the top of a tall tree. As the race started, some of the other frogs in the crowd began to comment,
“Oh, they’ll never make it.”
“That tree is just too tall for a frog to climb.”
“They don’t have a chance.”
Many of the frogs fell back to the ground, but a small group continued the race. The crowd still did not believe they would be able to make it and you could hear them saying,
“They are all going to get hurt.”
“They are all way too high.”
“This really is far too dangerous.”
And, sure enough, the remaining frogs all fell from the tree – all but one, that is. He made it all the way to the very top and, when they asked that outstandingly successful frog how he managed to achieve the seemingly impossible feat and actually climb that tall tree, he answered …
It turned out … that the winner was stone deaf which, in this situation, turned out to be a very good thing.
