This blog post is taken from my book Golden Nuggets, and it’s a great reminder that your ability to accomplish a task has a direct correlation to your motivation.

The story goes like this…

Once upon a time, a toad fell into a deep pothole on a dirt road.

All of his attempts at jumping out were in vain.

Soon a rabbit came along and offered to help him out.

He wasn’t able to help him, so the rabbit found various animals from the forest who all tried to help the poor toad out of the pothole… but they all failed.

Finally, the animals decided to leave and get the toad some food, because it looked like he was going to be in the pothole for quite a long time.

However, shortly after they left, the toad caught up with them.

They said to the toad, “We thought you couldn’t get out!”

The toad replied, “I didn’t think I could either, but when I saw the big truck coming at me, I didn’t have any choice.”

It’s amazing what we can do with the Proper Motivation…

So find your “why” and accomplish great things with your life.
