One day, a donkey fell into a well. The animal cried and whined for hours while his owner tried to figure out what to do.

Finally, the farmer decided that since the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway, he'd just bury the old donkey right there and then.

He got a shovel and started filling in the well with earth. The donkey kept on wailing, but then fell silent.

After an hour of furious shovelling, the farmer paused to rest. To his amazement, he saw his old donkey jump out of the well and trot away!

At first, when the donkey realised what was happening, he cried even more piteously. But then the wise animal hit on a plan. As each spadeful of earth hit his back, the donkey would shake it off and take a step up on the growing mound of dirt.

Eventually, the mound grew high enough for him to jump out of the well.

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. You can get out of the deepest well by determined perseverance. Just shake it off and take a step up!

Can you do this? Yes, I'm sure you can.
