In their new book, ‘Kiss That Frog,’ team of motivational author and speaker Brian Tracy and psychotherapist Christina Tracy Stein expand on the fairy tale (which was also the title hook of his earlier book, ‘Eat That Frog’) to teach us to recognize and learn from your frogs – fears, uncertainties and wounds that prevent you from achieving joy and fulfillment.
A common phrase in the venture capital business is that you have to “kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince”, meaning that you have to look at a lot of companies to find the real gems.
Think of a pond full of frogs, with each frog representing a different way to solve your problem.
Dean Kamen, a renowned Engineer who holds more than 1000 patents, tells his engineers that if they keep kissing frogs, eventually one will turn into a prince.
Kiss as many frogs as possible, even if it leaves a nasty taste in your mouth (i.e. failure and rejection).
It takes courage to keep walking when the path is obscured by failure and confusion.
Trust, believe & just keep walking and a way will be revealed. Become one of the rare people who don’t know how to quit.
Keep kissing the frog, Be persistent, find the prince & stay blessed forever.
