Two Little Mice Fell Into a Bucket of Cream Lesson

Catch Me If You Can | Life Nomading

Just recently, I had the itch to watch a favorite movie of mine, Catch Me If You Can. It has been many years since I last watched this movie, and so many of the scenes I had totally forgotten about. The one scene that really stuck out to me is when Frank Abagnale Sr. won an award and gave a simple speech that about two little mice fell into a bucket of cream. It resonates so well with the theme of this blog.

His speech went like this:

Two little mice fell into a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn’t quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out. Gentlemen, as of this moment, I am that second mouse.

To put it simply, it is a humble reminder that if you want to be successful in your pursuits you must never give up. You may feel like there is no way out sometimes, but if you keep on working hard the end in sight will eventually come.

You will eventually have your own butter and other’s will have drowned in cream.

Keep working hard, I promise it will be worth it!
