In the tradition of Who Moved My Cheese? here is a parable about change, overcoming obstacles, and making a leap of faith.

This simple, inspirational tale follows the journey of Ping, a frog in search of a new pond, preferably one good for long-distance jumping. Along the way he meets Owl, an insightful teacher who shares his wisdom, encouraging Ping to take an inner journey before pursuing his goal. Not everything goes as planned, but Ping learns how to "go with the flow, because the flow knows where to go."

Ping represents everybody who has encountered a setback, needs to take a risk, or is struggling with the challenges of change-that is to say, he is all of us. Owl is the mentor who helps him find meaning and leap to new heights. The adventure they embark on together is both engaging and revealing.
