Donkey in the well

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, hat the well needed to be covered anyway
and that it just wasn't worth retrieving the donkey. So 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 quietened down. A few shovel loads later, the
farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw.
With every 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 trotted off!
Life is going t o 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.
