“Eat a live frog every morning, and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.”—Mark Twain
My fabulous long-distance teacher from my Health Coach studies at IIN – Kara Snyder (Vitalcorpswellness.com) – sent this in her newsletter the other day: “If you’ve forgotten your New Year Resolution, please know you aren’t alone. By the end of January the success rate of sticking to that resolution that you thought was so f#x-ing spectacular at the beginning of the year is down to a 55% success rate”. The frog concept could be a good way of boosting that success rate.
The ‘frog’ idea is that if you do the worst thing on your plate first thing in the morning, the rest of the day is a breeze – not that resolutions are ‘bad’ ……..but chances are they are a little bit challenging.
Incidentally – for Australian folk – Mr Twain was not referring to our dear little friend Freddo Frog (pictured).
Right now I don’t have a few frogs …….. I have a whole pond of them!
Perhaps I need to experiment – the frogs could be ‘prepared’ differently, served in a different order or cut into bite-size pieces…… or blended!
