A group of frogs were traveling 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 two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all of 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 frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of 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.
The moral from the story is that when people discourage you simply give them the deaf ear. Don`t listen to what they have to say, get busy with other stuff. Know that true encouragement can lift spirits to a height they have never been before, so keep up the good work, in sha Allah.
Encouragement from someone can make such a great impact on you that can make you succeed. So try to spread some encouraging words. And remember that people will never be pleased with you no matter what you do, there will always be someone whom is displeased with you, it`t a lot more easy to please the Creator. He is the only one who can truly help us through every difficulty.
May Allah bless every person that is going through tough times. Ameen summa ameen.
