The sky is darkest just before dawn - Inspirational Story

This is the story of two frogs. One frog was fat and the other one was skinny. One day, while searching for food, they accidentally jumped into a pail of milk. They couldn't get out, because the sides were too slippery. So they were just swimming around.

They swam and swam and finally the fat frog said to the skinny frog, "There's no use in swimming any longer. We're just going to drown, so we might as well give up." The skinny frog replied, "Hold on brother, keep paddling. Somebody will get us out of here." And they continued paddling and paddled along for hours.

After a while, the fat frog said, "Brother, there's no use. I'm getting very tired. I can't hold on any longer so I'm just going to stop paddling. I know I will drown but I'm exhausted and I just can't paddle any more. It's Sunday and nobody's working. We're doomed. There's no possible way out of here." But the skinny frog said, "Keep trying. Keep paddling. Don't give up, something will happen, just keep paddling." Another couple of hours passed.

The fat frog said, "I can't go on any longer. There's no sense in doing it because we're going to drown anyway. What's the use?" And the fat frog stopped. He gave up. And he drowned in the milk. But the skinny frog kept on paddling.

A short while later, the skinny frog felt something solid beneath his feet. His constant paddling had churned the milk into butter and he hopped out of the pail.

Moral of the story: We all face difficulties in our lives. Look at any success story out there every one of them has a story of perseverance behind it. Sylvester Stallone at one point sold his dog in order to survive. J.K Rowling faced many rejections before she found a publisher who said "yes" to her manuscript of "Harry Potter". The Beatles were turned down by Decca Records saying, …"We don't like your sound and guitar music is on the way out." So never, ever give up, keep on paddling and remember, the sky is darkest just before dawn.
