So the farmer called his neighbours and together they started to shovel dirt into the well. The old mule was terrified and hysterical in the beginning. But soon one hopeful idea came to his mind – every time when a shovel of dirt landed on his back, he would shake it off and step up!
He repeated these words to himself again and again: " Shake it off and step up“. This way he could struggle the panic and encourage himself. After some time, the mule had stepped over the well‘s wall. Although terribly tired, he was the winner, he saved his own life. He decided to face his adversity positively and not to give up, and thus he won.
What seemed to bury him, actually saved him, owing to his confidence and restless efforts.

A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.
He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.
He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up the remaining open areas of the jar.
He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “Yes.”
“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the important things – your family, your partner, your health, your children – things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter – like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else, the small stuff.”
“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party, or fix the disposal.”
“Take care of the rocks first – the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

Researcher Jonathan Cheek told Science of Us that there are four different types of introverts: social, thinking, anxious and restrained and that every introvert has varying degrees of these traits, which makes sense considering introvert is a huge term that has various meanings and traits within itself.
So, let’s look at these introvert types in turn to help you decide which one you fit into:
1. Social Introversion:
A social introvert is the cliché type of introvert, if you will. It’s the type of introvert who likes to be alone and prefers not to socialize or if they have to, they prefer to keep their group fairly small and close-knit. Social introverts get their energy from being alone – one of the biggest traits of introversion – and being around people drains them emotionally, mentally and sometimes even physically. This type of introversion is often the type that gets mistaken for shyness – being socially introverted doesn’t necessarily make you shy or having anxiety about social situations, it simply means the individual prefers solitude over time spent with lots of other people.
2. Thinking Introversion:
A thinking introvert is somebody who likes to think, about anything and everything. The perfect word to sum up a thinking introvert is pensive. Being self-reflective and analyzing situations, conversations and memories is one of the traits of being a thinking introvert. Cheek claims thinking introverts are “capable of getting lost in an internal fantasy world. But it’s not in a neurotic way; it’s in an imaginative and creative way.”
3. Anxious Introversion:
A self-explanatory title for this introvert: an individual who gets anxious in social situations. The anxious introvert might not stay away from the party because they enjoy solitude, but because they experience a high state of anxiety, self-consciousness and/or awkwardness when in, or even thinking about, social situations. This kind of introversion ties in with worrying about previous social interactions and why things are the way they are. This type, however, can be manipulated should you define yourself as an anxious introvert. Therapy and counselling can be a very useful tool in finding coping strategies for anxiety, building your social confidence and moving you out of the anxious introvert box.
4. Restrained Introversion:
Perhaps the least-known type of introversion there is, restrained introverts are people who take a while to “warm up.” They may enjoy being around people, but only after they become used to the situation and the people. Another word for this type of introversion is reserved and preferring to observe and then think before speaking or acting.

If you found him in about 1 minute, the right part of your brain is of the average person.
If you needed more than 1 minute to find him, the right part of your brain is slow.
A guy was in a relationship with a girl for over two years. She was everything to him. She was the only one who could make him smile when he had a bad day. He loved her a lot.
Things changed and they broke up. He was heartbroken. He just couldn't get over her.
Someone advised him to smoke weed(cannabis) to get over her. He thought that maybe weed can help him.
He asked a friend who smokes weed to take him to the nearest place where they sell weed. It was a slum.
As he was waiting outside for him to score some weed for him, he saw an ice-cream vendor passing through. Then his eyes stopped at the three kids pleading their mother to buy them ice-cream. She scolded them as maybe she didn't have the money to buy them what they demanded. A veil of sadness surrounded the little kids.
He took the kids to the vendor and bought them the ones they wanted. It cost him 25 Rupees(0.40 USD). The smile on their face, it was priceless.
He asked them if he could take their picture.
They said yes without hesitating. It seemed like it was the first time someone clicked their picture.
This incident changed his life and he did not smoke weed that day or ever after.
Yes, money can buy happiness.
This is a beautiful story worth sharing :)
A son took his old father to a restaurant for an evening dinner.
Father being very old and weak, while eating, dropped food on his shirt and trousers. Other diners watched him in disgust while his son was calm.
After he finished eating, his son who was not at all embarrassed, quietly took him to the restroom, washed off all the food particles, removed the stains, combed his hair and fitted his spectacles firmly.
When they came out, the entire restaurant was watching them in dead silence, not able to grasp how could someone could embarrass themselves publicly like that.
The son settled the bill and started walking out with his father.
At that point, an old man amongst the diner called out to the son and asked him,
"Don't you think you've left something behind?"
The son replied,
"No sir, I haven't."
The old man retorted,
"Yes, you have. You left a lesson for every son and hope for every father."
The whole restaurant went silent.
To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honors.
