Put a frog into a pan and start boiling the water.
As the temperature of the water begins to rise, the frog adjusts it’s body temperature accordingly.
The frog keeps adjusting its body temperature with the increasing temperature of the water. Just when the water has reached boiling point, the frog cannot take anymore and decides to jump out.
The frog tries to jump out 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?
Think about it.. I know many of us will say the boiling water. But the truth about what killed the frog was its own inability to decide when to jump.
We all need to adjust with people and situations. But we need to be sure when it’s necessary to adjust or whether it’s necessary to move on. There are times when we need to face the situation and take appropriate actions.
If we allow people to exploit us physically, emotionally, financially, spiritually or mentally they will continue to do so.
Let us decide when to jump. Let’s jump while we still have the strength!
