A true story that’ll inspire you
One day a certain farmer’s donkey fell into a deep well. The four-legged creature cried pitifully for several hours as the owner tried to contemplate on the way forward. Finally, he decided that there was no need to retrieve the animal because he was too old anyway. So, he invited his neighbors to come and help cover up the well. They all started shoveling dirt into the well. The donkey realized what was going on and started crying horribly. Then, to everybody’s astonishment, he quieted down.
One or two shove loads later, the owner looked down the borehole and was surprised at what he saw. The animal was doing something astounding.

With every scoop of dirt thrown on his back, he would vigorously shake it off and take a step upwards. This went on for a few minutes before the donkey jumped over the well’s edges and trotted off! And everyone was amazed!
