The group of frogs found no way to help two frogs come out of pit. They just gave up. While on other hand two frogs inside pit decided to not listen to anyone. They choose to try getting out of pit.
They two frogs were making continuous efforts to jump out of the pit. The group of frogs standing outside kept on saying that they will never be able to jump out of fit. They should stop trying and giving pain to themselves. The group of frogs did nothing but demotivated the two frogs every time they were making attempt to jump out of the pit.

He was tired and exhausted. He was in pain but continued trying. All frog outside felt bad and said to him, ‘ Please stop trying and accept the death’.
The frog made another attempt again with full energy and this time he made it. All the frogs were happy. But they wondered why he kept trying when we asked him to stop. One of the frog asked from group we are continuously saying to give up but you did not stop why?
Frog replied, ‘ohh I am DEAF and I thought you all were encouraging me to try hard. So I kept trying and finally made it’
