Farmer and the Old Donkey

Push yourself because, no one else is going to do it for you

There was an old donkey. One day accidentally he fell into the farmer’s well.

The farmer has evaluated the situation and thought to himself, that neither the well nor the old donkey was worth the efforts to save them. Hence he decided to haul dirt to bury the old donkey in the well.

So farmer called his neighbours and together they started to shovel dirt into the well. The old donkey was terrified and hysterical in the beginning. But soon one hopeful idea came to his mind – every time when a shovel of dirt landed on his back, he would shake it off and step up.

He repeated these words to himself again and again: Shake it off and step up. This way he could struggle the panic and encourage himself.

After some time, the donkey had stepped over the well's wall. Although too tired, he was the winner, he saved his own life.

He decided to face his adversity positively and not to give up, and thus he won.

What was supposed to bury him, actually saved him, because of his confidence and restless efforts.

Never give up, Keep trying!!!
