[InstaMotivation@9pm] What can we all learn from the Donkey tonight?



A man’s favorite donkey falls into a deep precipice. He can’t pull it out no matter how hard he tries. He therefore decides to bury it alive.

Soil is poured onto the donkey from above. The donkey feels the load, shakes it off, and steps on it. More soil is poured.

It shakes it off and steps up. The more the load was poured, the higher it rose. By noon, the donkey was grazing in green pastures.

We may not be able to control the external situations or external people. But we can control our internal perspectives. In the course of this UPSC journey we may get negative things from many sides. Sometimes, people will stand firmly to make sure you are buried into the failures. They try every possible way to pull you down. But you should use them as your stepping stones. Try to find possibilities of hope in every negative situation and from every negative person. Because, we have to WIN this game. Come What may! Period.
