Even Frog Know What's Doggedness

Two young frogs fell into a bucket of milk. Both tried to jump to freedom, but the sides of the bucket were steep and no foundation was to be had on the surface of the liquid.

Seeing little chance of escape, the first frog soon despaired and stopped jumping. After a short while he sunk to the bottom of the bucket and drowned.

The second frog also saw no likelihood of success, but he never stopped trying. Even though each jump seemed to reach the same inadequate height, he kept on struggling. Eventually, his persistent efforts churned some milk into butter. From the now hardened surface of the milk, he managed to leap out of the bucket.

Success doesn't only belong to the clever or the talented ones. Instead, it goes to those who recognize the importance of persistence and continuity of hard work. Consistent, small efforts are always better than one off, massive one.

Those who persists win. Winners never quit while quitters never win. You heard this phrase often enough. However, how often did you live by this code?
