JUMP! Don’t be the boiling frog.. #be #unstoppable
If you place a frog in frying pan of boiling water, he will instantly jump out.
But if you place a frog in cold water and gradually inscrease the heat it won’t move... it stays put, continually adapting and adjusting to the temperature until finally, it will succumb to the heat, become enable to move and die.
This happens in our lives too.
When we’re young we have a clear picture of how we want our lives to look.. and then Life happens! We drop into this cold pan of water that keep the heat gradually increases and we let go of our ambitions.
We stay in toxic relationships, we tolerate jobs we hate and we end up forgetting who we are and the standards we set ourselves.
The heat is so gradual that you don’t see it happening before it’s too late.
The heat is allowing the way someone treats you to get worse and worse without jumping out the pan.
The heat is letting other people’s negativity slowly erode away at your confidence, your self worth and your ambitions.
The heat is staying in a job you hate because the lack of self-belief around you has made you lower your standards to the point where you’re comfortable but you’re totally unhappy.
If someone emotionally or physically abused you on a first date you’ll immediately slap him in the face and walk out the room. You would jump out the pan immediately !!
But after 3 years in a relationship after having your standards and confidence slowly eroded away, you find yourself accepting the same abuse, you’ll die like that frog in the pan if you continue to compromise your standards.
The truth is...
It’s only those that demand more that get it, and only those that protect their standards that get out that pan.
So if things are getting hotter than now it’s time to jump out the pan.
