The Farmer & The Donkey – Take A Step Up!

posted by The MEGA Coach


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 the animal was old, the well needed to be covered up anyway and it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

 

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him.
They each 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 looked down the well,
and was astonished at what he saw.

 

As every shovel of dirt hit his back, the donkey did something amazing.
He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbors 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 trotted off.

 

The Moral:
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.

The trick is to shake it off and take a step up.
Each of our troubles is a stepping-stone.

We can get out of the deepest wells by not stopping and never giving up!

Shake it off and take a step up!

    How very true – Thank you for the reminder that we always have a choice: life’s adversities, the lemons can be turned into lemonade. All that is needed is belief that this too will pass and move us forward.

    Oh my goodness! What an awesome story, I should know you by now, but I didn’t expect the amazing ending, did I mention I love this?! ;D

    Altho the moral of the story is great, the farmer should have been
    arrested for animal cruelty.

    Hi Rose,
    “Always Remember that It is too soon to quit!”
    What would happen if instead of giving up, you just let go?
    Keep your faith and positive hope and vision for your grandson’s divine plan.
    Let go and know that a Higher Power is in charge and that you can support
    and love him unconditionally.
    Warm Regards,
    :) Lee

Keep Looking Up
A wise man shared with me, “Sometimes God puts you on your back so you can look up.” At times, life shows up with challenges.  The key is how to receive it - do we allow it, accept it and welcome it as our next mission or the next thing to learn and experience? The world is facing its t
