Everyone is giving some opportunity somewhere in Life. Some "Step Up" to a challenge, to an Invitation, or to Grow in Life.
It's rather sad that fear holds people back from 'Stepping Up'.
Many are afraid of:
Failure; Disappointment; Lacking necessary Skills, Etcetera.... (The List go on Forever)
Are you also regretting past opportunities that you've 'missed out' of, because of FEAR!
I DID! I regret it till this moment.
But after reading this Inspirational Story... I decided to TRY something, rather than Fear it.
I hope this Motivates you too To "STEP UP" to your awaiting Success.
Enjoy this Inspirational Story!!!
Shake it off and take a step up!
One day a farmer's donkey fell into an abandoned 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; so it just wasn't worth it to him to try to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They each grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. Realising what was happening, the donkey at first cried and wailed horribly. Then, a few shovelfuls later, he quieted down completely.
The farmer peered down into the well, and was astounded by what he saw. With every shovelful of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing some thing amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up on the new layer of dirt. 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, the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off, to the shock and astonishment of all the neighbours. Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to not let it bury you, but 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 just by not stopping, never giving up!
