Learning to turn a deaf ear to neurotic thinking

Frogs are pessimists. It’s a fact. There was once a race to find the fastest frog in the swamp. Five formidable frogs lined up, along with one rather sickly frog called Ribbit. The gun went off, immediately the pessimistic crowd began yelling, “Stop, stop it’s too hard, you’re going to hurt yourselves…” One by one the frogs dropped out of the race, all except for sickly Ribbit who finished the race. How? Ribbit, you see, was deaf!

You’ll be amazed what you can accomplish when you turn a deaf ear to your own pessimistic “frog-thinking.”
