Several biological studies have shown that a frog placed in a kettle with the same water as in its pond will remain static for as long as we heat the water, even if it boils. The frog does not react to the gradual increase in temperature (changes in environment) and dies when water boils.
On the other hand, if a frog were to be put into a cauldron of boiling water, it would instinctively leap out to escape the danger
Many times in life we act just like boiled frogs. We remain in our comfort zones, whether in life, or in a personal or professional environment. Time passes, and there we remain, even if unhappy. Why? Often we have a wretched fear of risking change, we fear the unknown. Our thinking process goes something like: “this is actually not that bad” or “what if I take a risk and things get even worse?”. We rarely think about the breadth of possibilities that life offers us or the enormous potential that we have as individuals, and we continue living our lives like that, floating and apathetic while the water is warming up.
On the other hand, the frog jumping from boiling water knows or has the gut feeling that if it doesn´t get out fast it will die. It may even get a little bruised, but it understands the consequences and will move forward with courage to face the challenges and the good surprises that life offers. And you, how do you deal with change?
