Once upon a time, according to the fairy tale, a handsome prince was turned into an ugly frog by a spiteful witch. Her curse could be broken only if he was kissed by a princess, something the witch was sure would never happen.
Once upon that same time, a beautiful princess longed for a handsome prince she could marry, but he hadn’t appeared in her life.
One day, while walking alone in the woods by a small lake, she saw an ugly frog who was living in the woods. As the princess sat quietly by the water, thinking about her situation and longing for a handsome prince to come along, the frog hopped up to her and spoke.
He told her that he was actually a handsome prince, and if she would just kiss him, he would turn into the prince that he had been before and he would marry her and love her forever after.
The idea seemed absurd, but with great reluctance, she summoned up her courage and character and kissed the frog right on the lips.
As he had promised, he immediately turned into a handsome prince. He kept his word and married her, and they lived happily ever after.
It seems that almost everyone has a block, or more than one, that holds him or her back from becoming a truly happy, healthy, joyful person, looking forward to each new day with excitement and anticipation.
What is the “frog” in your life that you need to “kiss” before you can achieve all that is possible for you?
What are the negative experiences in your life that you need to embrace, deal with, and use to transform yourself into the amazing person you are capable of becoming?
The great aim of human life is to enjoy happiness and peace of mind. Every normal person wants to enjoy and experience the positive emotions of love, pleasure, satisfaction, and fulfillment.
Perhaps the greatest discovery in psychology and individual fulfillment is that the biggest obstacles that stand between you and an extraordinary life are usually negative mental attitudes toward yourself and others.
Only when you learn to “kiss that frog,” continually making it a habit to seek and find something positive and worthwhile in every person and experience, will you unlock your full potential for success.
Release your full potential to live an extraordinary life, ‘kiss that frog’ and stay blessed forever.
