One day a rancher’s donkey fell into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the rancher endeavored to make sense of what to do. At long last, he decided the animal was old and the well needed to be covered up anyway, it just wasn’t worth the hassle to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to scoop dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried frightfully. At that point, surprisingly, he calmed down.
A couple of scoop stacks later, the rancher at long last looked down the well and was astounded at what he saw. With each scoop of dirt that fell on his back, the donkey was accomplishing something stunning. He would shake it off and make a stride up. As his neighbors kept on scooping soil over the animal, he would shake it off and make a stride up.
Pretty soon, everybody was astonished as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and jogged off!
Moral Lesson: Life is always going to scoop dirt on you. It is almost inevitable but to succeed and live the lifestyle you desire, you must choose to never give up and be resourceful. Shake It Off and Step Up!
