Can you shake it off?
Once upon a time there was a farmer who had an old mule. The mule fell into a deep dry well and began to cry loudly. Hearing his mule cry, the farmer came over and assessed the situation. The well was deep and the mule was old and heavy. He knew it would be almost impossible to lift the animal out.
Because the mule was old and the well was dry, the farmer decided to bury the animal in the well. In this way he could solve two problems: put the mule out of his misery and have his well filled. He asked his neighbors to help him and so shovel full of dirt after shovel full of dirt began to fall on the mule's back. The mule became hysterical.
Then all of a sudden an idea came to the mule. Each time they would throw a shovel of dirt on his back he could shake it off and step up! Now exhausted and dirty, but quite alive, the mule stepped over the top of the well and walked through the crowd! source:anonymous
We can do the same!
You will fall into holes and life will cover you with dirt. Believe in yourself, SHAKE IT OFF and keep moving.
