Secret of Success

Never Give Up - Secret of Success

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into an old well. The animal cried helplessly for hours as the farmer tried to find out what to do. Finally the farmer felt that the animal was old and he gave up and decided to fill the well since it is also old and of no use.He invited his neighbours to help him. They also ruthlessly agreed to his point and all grabbed a shovel and began to throw mud into the well.

At first, the donkey realised what was happening and cried horribly and helplessly. Then, to every-one's surprise, it quietened down. A few minutes later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of mud that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He shook it off and took a step up.

Soon, to every-one's surprise the donkey stepped up over and over the mud that 's been thrown into the well and at-last stepped up over the edge of the well and walked off! Life is going to shovel all kinds of mud on you. The trick to getting out of the problem is 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 of our problems just by not stopping but by never giving up.

You are the architect of your life.

Create your own opportunities

and make things happen.

Set yourself a specific goal

and monitor your progress.

Be of service.

Keep doing things for others

without counting the cost.

Turn your defeats into victories.

Control your environment.

people who inspire you.

Keep your attitude positive

and your health in fine trim.

Let God go before you

in everything you do.

Pray regularly with feeling.

Always be planning

something constantly.

You are the magnet of

your circumstances.

Never give up!
