The Donkey That Fell Down The Well

I just read this excellent little story, that I just had to post since I picture myself as the donkey for sure…



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 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 quieted down.

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 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 happily trotted off!

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.

NOW …………

The donkey later came back, and bit the farmer who had tried to bury him. The gash from the bite got infected and the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.


When you do something wrong, and try to cover your ass (pun intended), it always comes back to bite you.

My Old Copy Of Think And Grow Rich

August 28, 2006 on 8:58 pm | In General | No Comments

Have a look at the copy of Think And Grow Rich that I inherited from my dad. It’s very old printed in 1960 and not in the best shape. But the book still readable after being kicked around for 46 years. When he gave it me I didn’t understand what I had been given, until I went to World Internet Summit, and saw Ted Ciuba speak about it. I have just started reading it again, basically it’s as if I’m reading it for the first time, it’s been so long. I also believe that my dad didn’t really understand it either. He is not entrepreneurial in any way and although he highlighted parts of the book, they are not the parts that I would have highlighted.

Think And Grow Rich Questionaire

I have always been entrepreneurial ever since I was a boy, but I only came to embrace it when I was 21. I’m now 32 and have a goal to be financially independant by 35. How I have the entrepreneurial spirit in my veins is beyond me. My parents did a good job of trying to stop me from being this way, but it’s something that can’t be held back. I think my drive stems from not following in his work all your life even when you’re retired footsteps.
