Description

This is the mystical story of Ping, a frog with a proud heritage who's ignored the signs of his pond drying up around him, and is stuck in the mud. Forced to leave his home, he makes a leap into the unknown, unprepared for what lies ahead. He's saved by the elderly, wise Owl, who teaches him physical and mental skills, enabling him to set goals and pursue his dreams despite many setbacks along the way.

In the words of Owl, "Believe you can't and you won't. Believe you can and you will. Words form belief; belief forms action."

"Gold's writings are a blend of business advice and spiritual teachings for the 21st Century entrepreneur." -- Newsweek

"Stuart Avery Gold taps into the spirit of self-discovery to encourage readers to take risks." -- Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start

  • (4/5)
    PING, A Frog in Search of a New Pond was a charming book. Short, quick read, it tells about Ping, a frog who wants more for his life, but lacks the confidence to try. We all need to have more faith in ourselves. We need to seek happiness by taking risks and scaling obstacles which we may not always be able to do, but if we don't try, we don't even have the chance for success and happiness. Give a task your all and know that although you are vulnerable, you are living a full life. There will always be setbacks and sadness in our lives, but we must not let them take control of who we are. To really live a good life is to experience the good with the bad and go with the flow. It's how we deal with the setbacks that can make or break a life well lived.Uplifting and encouraging. I recommend this to those who've lost their focus; who feel discouraged. Each of us has a choice how we will live our life. Ping learned that; so can you.
