Life is all about Rising Up
In every step of life there are troubles. Life is going to shovel an amazing amount of dirt on you, all kinds of difficulties and troubles. However, each of our troubles is a steppingstone to success. The trick is to get out of the well by shaking off what appears to be the end and take a step up. We can get out of the deepest wells by just not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up!
One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided that the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.
As the farmer’s neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!
Others may try to throw down and push you down, that doesn’t matter. What matters is the courage you have to face them and to rise up. When you realize you are not weak and you build yourself as a backup to you, you become the winner in your life.
