Frog On A Log

Three frogs sitting on a log, two decided to jump off, how many were left? 
If you said one you were wrong. I will tell you the answer but first let me tell you about the frog in a milk pail....
A careless frog was hopping around a farmyard when all of a sudden he fell into a pail half-filled with fresh milk

As he swam about attempting to reach the top of the pail, he found that the sides of the pail were too high and too steep. He stretched his back legs to push off the bottom of the pail but found it too deep. 
But this wasn't your average frog, this frog was determined not to give up, and he continued the struggle.

He kicked and squirmed and kicked and squirmed, until at last, all his churning about in the milk had turned the milk into a big hunk of butter. The butter was now solid enough for him to climb up on and hop out of the pail.  
The lesson is, Never Give Up.  Keep trying, keep moving and you will get there.

Another Frog Story

A large group of frogs were traveling through the woods one day and two of them fell into a deep hole. When the other frogs saw how deep the hole was, they told the two frogs that there was nothing they could do. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the deep hole with all their might.  
The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.  

The other trapped frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, all the other frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out. 

When he got out, the other frogs said, "Did you not hear us?" The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time. 
Again the lesson is, never give up.  You have to keep moving. You can't sit still on a log and expect to get something done.  

Now the answer to the frog on the log riddle.

Three frogs sitting on a log, two decided to jump off, how many were left? 

If you said one you were wrong. All three were still left. The two only talked about jumping, they wanted to jump, they decided to jump, but they never took  action. 

Lesson is: You can wish for, hope for, plan for, want to, decide to, but until you take some action you are still on the log.
