Leadership Lesson: +ve MENTAL ATTITUDE

A milk vendor used to sell milk on his motor cycle in a town. He was carrying four milk cans, two on each side of his vehicle ..
One day, while he was calling on a house, two students approached his motor cycle and pushed frogs one each in two cans.
The happy frogs started finding themselves in a tight position.
The frog in one of the cans studied the situation. It made a SWOT analysis.
His strength was – to swim effectively in any liquid. He recollects from his "WISDOM BANK" that most difficult times come only for a short time and will not last long.
He starts swimming and swimming and finds himself sitting on a butter lump formed due to the churning action of his swimming. He is now safe for a while. When the milk vendor opens the cans for his next call, the frog leaps to his freedom .
The frog in other can does not turn on his attitudinal bulb. He blames the student for his misery and started cursing him. He blames God for making him so small that he can neither lift the lid of the can nor he can drill a hole in the can.
With all these negative thoughts, he eventually drowns in the milk and dies.
What is the moral of the story ?
It is about ATTITUDE.
While the first frog was a ' I CAN' person with a positive mental attitude, the other one was a ' I CAN'T ' person.
You can be a "CAN" or 'CAN'T' person. The choice is with you alone.
No one except yourself can make you a 'CAN' or 'CAN'T' person.
A Winner is NOT one who NEVER FAILS......But one who NEVER QUITS!!!"
Many people spend their whole life in overcoming their weakness .. but they forget it is only possible by strengthening there strengths...
Let us work on our strengths such that any problem can be converted into opportunity and be a Positive person...
If we are positive ....then surely we would be able to see +ve energy in others...too.....
When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work.
A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times.
He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000-step process".

"If you want to get out of the pit, stop digging."
