Once a Frog fell in a vessel with normal water. The vessel was on the live stove and the temperature started rising slowly. Rather than moving out from the vessel the Frog started adjusting his body temperature according to the temperature of water. The temperature started rising and the frog also managed to put all his energy to increase his temperature to survive inside the water. After certainly lever the frog was not able to survive the temperature and started jumping out of the bowl. But unfortunately as all his energy was lost while he was adjusting his temperature, he had no energy left to come out of the bowl and dies.

Moral- The frog couldn’t make it due to its own inability to decide when it had to jump out. We all need to adjust according to the situations but there are times when we need to face the situation and take the appropriate action when we have the strength to do so before it’s too late. Walk out before you need to jump.
