Motivation Monday

Twelve frogs were sitting on a log.

Seven frogs decided to jump into the pond.

How many frogs remain on the log?

What is your answer?

Seven frogs?

Five frogs?

Twelve frogs?

Zero frogs?











The correct answer is twelve frogs.


The seven frogs only decided to jump. They did not actually jump into the pond. There is a huge difference between deciding and doing.

“To know and not to do is not yet to know.”

Bottom LineDo what you will say you do. Follow through on promises and keep commitments. Your actions speak louder than your words.
