In the home based business of network marketing to create residual income can be likened to a certain tale .
A group of frogs were travelling through the woods and two of them fell into a deep pit.All the other frogs gathered around the pit.When they saw how deep the pit was,they told the unfortunate frogs they would not get out.The two frogs ignored the comment and tried to jump up, out of the pit.
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 simply gave up.He fell down and died.The other frog continued to jump, as hard as he could.Once again,the crowd of frogs yelled at him, to stop the pain and suffering and just die.He jumped even harder and finally made it out.
WHEN he got out,the other frogs asked him “Why did you continue jumping? Didn’t you hear us?” The frog explained to them, that he was hard of hearing,almost deaf.He thought, they were encouraging him,the entire time.
TWO LESSONS from the story, 1) There is power of life and death in the tongue.An encouraging word to someone who is down, can lift that person up and help him/her make it through the day.2) A destructive word to someone who is down, can be what it takes to kill him/her.
THE home based business of network marketing to create residual income is no exception.
