One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. 

The animal cried piteously for hours as

the farmer tried to figure out a way to get him out. 

Finally he decided it was probably impossible

and the animal was old and the well was dry anyway,

so it just wasn't worth it to try and retrieve the donkey. 

So the farmer asked his neighbours to come over

and help him cover up the well.

They all grabbed shovels and began

to shovel dirt into the well.

At first, when the donkey realized what was

happening he cried horribly.

hen, to everyone's amazement,

he quieted down and let out some happy brays. 

A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked

down the well to see what was happening

and was astonished at what he saw. 

With every shovel of dirt that hit his back,

the donkey was shaking it off and taking a step up.

As the farmer's neighbours continued to

shovel dirt on top of the animal,

he continued to shake it off and take a step up. 

Pretty soon, to everyone's amazement,

the donkey stepped up over the

edge of the well and trotted off.


The moral of this tale is:

Life is going to shovel dirt on you.

The trick to getting out of the well is to

shake it off and take a step up. 

Through applying wisdom every adversity

can be turned into a stepping stone. 

The way to get out of the deepest well is

by never giving up but by shaking

yourself off and taking a step up.

The moral of this donkey story is

what happens to you isn't nearly as

important as how you react to it.
