    Story to make you feel better facing problems

    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, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

    He invited all his neighbors 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 amaz...ement 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 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 happily trotted off!

    MORAL :
    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. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

    Learn Change and Adapt ?????

    Wonderful sentiment. Thank you so much for sharing this DL.  A positive start to the day! Smile

    Everyone has a choice how they react to circumstances.  Real problems can always be solved - it's only imagined ones that seem insurmountable.

    Keep shaking off the dirt, plodding on, and learning and growing, and landlord life will turn out alright imho.

    I agree with Vanessa....wonderful sentiment DL!  My view is that there is always a solution, but as a solutionist, I would say that ;-) 

    Onwards & upwards!

    All the best

    Yes nice one DL

    I like short snappy stories like that

    A journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

    Just put one foot in front of another. Little by little you will get there

    I climbed a mountain once.What a day that was

    Nearly quit after 3 hours . I was frozen and exhausted . Stopped had a banana and a few biscuits

    That was better. I looked down and I looked up. I was in two minds as to whether to continue

    Then dug in - Got to the top . Beautiful view

    Stick with stuff.

    All very nice etc

    But if you knew you would never reach the mountain top for the rest of your life but had little alternative than to keep on going how'd you feel about that

    Cos many LL are stuck in this position due to S24.

    If they are able to sell up they will be homeless as I will be

    Without S24 I have a very successful business, with it I haven't

    Completely and utterly unfair!!

    Yes its a  bit  of a downer when you get climbing cramps and it slows down your aspirations

    But chin up......

    There are 1000`s of mountains in the world to climb other than just the property mountain

    Climb another and when you get to the top..... 

    use the profits.........to pay the shortfall of the sec 24 mountain

    Thank you for your story DL. I related it to our care home residents this morning and they all thought it was really good too!

    As well as it giving motivation for persistence one can also translate it as meaning that certain things may seem to be bad at the outset but then may actually work out as being good in the long run.

    I have recently been listening to motivational speakers such as Tony Robbins and Brian Tracy on UTube and have found a wealth of knowledge and inspiration which has already helped me in many aspects of my life.

    I have just printed this out and put it on my office wall       The future depends on what you do today.   Gandhi.

    Motivational tales like that are all very well but you also need to know when to stop flogging a dead horse, myself I try to be a realist.

    I do embrace your sentiments Layla and agree that we need to have a realistic take on our ambitions.

    However our concept of realism is individually subjective.  

    A passionate and positively motivated optimist may create their own reality more successfully than an uninspired unmotivated pessimist.

    Some other well known adages are: 

    'The only failure is to give up trying' and 'If you haven't succeeded yet you haven't failed enough times'.
