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

From AudioFile:

Christopher Lane puts his vocal artistry to good use in this compact parable about breaking free from old ways. His sonority and interpretive range combine to make Gold's message memorable and inspiring. Full of timeless aphorisms about personal change, the story involves several young frogs who leave the safety of a familiar pond to look for opportunity in the great ocean. With encouragement and guidance from others, they learn to find purpose and trust themselves, rather than worrying about obstacles. The most potent message for many listeners will be Gold's eloquent reminder that focused actions are more important than merely dreaming of greatness. A classic achievement audio for anyone hindered by fear or lack of self-confidence. T.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
