Once upon a time, there was a farmer. The farmer had a donkey. One day this donkey fell into a well. The farmer tried hard to pull the donkey up, but the well was deep and the walls were slippery.
He called some of his friends to help him. All of them tried but in vain. At last they decided,
“Its futile to try to pull the donkey up, We will just have to bury the old donkey. At least this will not happen again after the well is filled up with mud.”
The farmer felt sad about this, but had no other option. He thought its better to bury him then to leave him there to die.
So the farmer and his friends started putting mud into the well. At first the donkey got scared and started screaming. After some time he calmed down and started shaking off all the mud over him.
He realised that he can now step over the mud present beneath him.
Every-time the farmer and his friends put the mud over the donkey, he would shake it off and step over it and thus stepping up each time. Soon he was able to reach the surface and jumped out of the well.
Life treats us the same way. It gives us challenges and hard situations and leaves upto us to make those challenges into opportunity or adversity. Sometimes it becomes very gloomy and seems there is no way out of the current situation. That is the time we need to find the silver lining and find for every possible way out.
You need to keep taking one step forward, and with every step you will see new and great things that you could not see earlier. Every step will reveal new opportunities.
The true essence of life is to keep moving forward, one step at a time, and you can come out of any situation and achieve any dream you have.
