Story of the Boiling Frog
Yesterday I asked the question if anyone has ever heard of the boiling frog story…
Not a whole lot of responses so I am assuming most people have never heard the story, so here you go..its a great story and lesson that can be applied to any aspect in life.
It’s a fascinating 19th century science experiment.
As the story goes, researchers found that when they put a frog in a pan of boiling water, the frog just quickly jumped out.
On the other hand, when they put a frog in cold water and put the water to boil over time, the frog just boiled to death, slowly without realizing or noticing he was fading away.
The hypothesis is that the change in temperature is so gradual, the frog does not realize it’s boiling to death. While the results of the experiment are in question it is a good metaphor for any area in life whether it be your job, relationship, or any life situation that you find yourself in that is not serving you.
Often we find ourselves in a situation that we are unhappy with and wondering how we got there.
We don’t even feel it coming.
Then we find ourselves in a situation that feels like its too late….just like the boiling frog. We sit there and allow the boiling water to take over and never jump out.
This story is a great reminder and a metaphor for all of us today.
Great thing about life is….It’s never to late to jump out and change the situation we are in. We don’t have to be like the frog.
So today check yourself and your situations…If you don’t like what you see….
