The Scorpion and the Frog

The scorpion asked the frog to swim him across the water. The frog said, “No, that would be foolish for if I were to do that you would surely sting me half way across.” The scorpion responded, “That would be ridiculous because if I were to sting you then both you and I would drown.” The frog responded, “But that is your nature.” Finally, the scorpion convinced the frog to swim him across the water. Half way across the scorpion stung the frog. “Why did you do that?” the frog asked, “Now we will both drown.” The scorpion responded, “Because that is my nature.”
What is your nature? Are you naturally optimistic or always trying to see what is wrong? Are you looking for a solution or are you constantly complaining? Remember, how you do anything is how you do everything.
