Two Frogs Fell In A Bowl Of Cream

by Sherry Riter in Motivation

“Two frogs fell into a bowl of cream.
One didn’t panic, he relaxed and drowned.
The other kicked and struggled so much
that the cream turned to butter and
he walked out.”

6 Things The Two Frogs Teach Us

  1. Don’t give up during a crisis.
  2. If you’re going to die, make sure you’re standing by cream. There’s not very many foods better than cream.
  3. Frogs can walk.
  4. During a crisis, it is good to have a motivated friend who will work if necessary.
  5. When you think that you are in an impossible situation, believe that things can and will be different if you don’t give up.
  6. Like I’ve always said…It’s good to panic! LOL

You missed the message of the poem. A closer reading will teach that the one that accepted his fate but fought with a positive attitude is the one that churns the cream and hops out, the survivor.
