Want to fulfill dreams? – Be deaf!


"You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks."  - Winston Churchill
There once was a bunch of tiny frogs who got together to organize a competition for reaching to the top of the highest tower in town.
As the date for the competition was announced, the news spread everywhere and crowd in large numbers gathered around the tower to see this interesting competition and cheer on the contestants. The crowd did not really believe any of these little frogs were going to make it to the top of the tower. Yet they were curious.
The big day arrived, the competition began, the frogs quickly started to ascend and the crowd cheered.
As a few moments passed, someone from the crowd shouted, "Not a chance that they will succeed! The tower is too high!"
Another spectator said, "Yes, they will never make it to the top. It's way too difficult!"
As the competition continued, some of the tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one, tired and exhausted.  But the race continued, as those who still had the fight left, passionately continued to climb higher and higher.
In the excitement and anxiety the crowd continued to yell, "It is too difficult. No one will make it!"
More tiny frogs got tired and gave up. They all continued to give up one by one, until there was only one little frog left in the competition who continued to climb higher and higher and higher.
This one wouldn’t give up!
This one tiny frog who, after persistent efforts was the only one who reached the top! This little soul was the winner! He made it to the top and got the glory!
Naturally, everyone wanted to know how this one tiny frog managed to pull it off when every other contestant gave up. Everybody wanted to know how this tiny frog had found the strength to reach this goal that everyone else thought was impossible. So, they asked questions.

It turned out that the winner was deaf.

Winners never pay attention to what other people’s opinions are when it comes to their dreams and goals. Focus on your goal and march in confidence. People who are not playing with you, people who are not helping you reach your destination, will always have opinions and generally – negative ones. Do not pay any attention to them. Just be deaf and keep walking else your dreams might get murdered anytime by so called free consultants, available out in the world. 

Here are few deaf people who blessed the world before and you can be the next.
 Had these people not been deaf to the world, they could have never made in their lives.

Be deaf when people tell you that you can’t fulfill your dreams and goals. Don’t let the cowards come in the way to your dreams they generally have opinions and no facts. Even if they have facts; remember ‘If your dreams are BIG enough, facts too do not count.’

    1. Absolutely, Yash. If elephant decides to teach a lesson to every dog in the street which barks on it. It will NEVER reach its destination and moreover it will loose its identity and no more be an elephant.
