The Compromising Frog


Put a frog in a vessel of water and start heating the water.

As the temperature of the water rises, the frog is able to adjust its body temperature accordingly.

The frog keeps on adjusting with increase in temperature...

Just when the water is about to reach boiling point, the frog is not able to adjust anymore...

At that point the frog decides to jump out...

The frog tries to jump but is unable to do so, because it has lost all its strength in adjusting with the rising water temperature...

Very soon the frog dies.

What killed the frog?

Many of us would say the boiling water...

But the truth is what killed the frog was its own inability to decide when it had to jump out. It was a sort of compromise and adjustment he was making with the existing and changing situation.

We all need to adjust with people and situations, but we need to be sure when we need to adjust and when we need to confront/face.

There are times when we need to face the situation and take the appropriate action...

If we allow people to exploit us physically, mentally, emotionally or financially, they will continue to do so...

Similar is the case with situations with our life. Are we happy in the life, the job, the profession we are pursuing? Or, are we secretly desiring to follow our passion in a free and uninhabited manner?

We have to decide when to jump.

Let us jump while we still have the strength.

Think on It !!
