Often in the fairy tale of the Princess and the Frog the woes of the princess are exploited while the Prince sits around on a lily pad eating flies all day. Are you a Man or a Frog?
This morning on the drive home from the gym I was thinking about what to write when the words "Frog and the Prince" popped into my head.
I asked my wife what the story of the "Princess and the Frog" meant to her - she replied that it is about having to do what you don't want to do. Her recollection is of the poor princess who lost her golden ball down the well and who had to learn humility enough to want to kiss a frog.
I'm not interested in getting deep into the story line here. I'm interested in talking about why so many of us men act like frogs when we have a royal destiny ahead of us.
Just because we look around and see everyone else eating flies and waiting for a Princess to save them doesn't mean we must do the same.
Whether "eating flies" means going to a job you hate, eating at the trough of debt to try and keep up with your neighbors, or live a sedentary lifestyle that leads to obesity and the life of a couch potato -
I'm hear to tell you there is a life of steak and potatoes in your future as soon as you are tired of eating insects.
